A feeding tube is a medical device used to deliver nutrients, fluids, or medications directly into the gastrointestinal tract when a person is unable to eat or swallow safely. It consists of a flexible tube that is inserted through the nose or mouth, down the throat, and into the stomach or small intestine. Feeding tubes come in various types, including nasogastric tubes (inserted through the nose and into the stomach), nasoenteric tubes (inserted through the nose and into the small intestine), gastrostomy tubes (inserted through the abdominal wall directly into the stomach), and jejunostomy tubes (inserted into the small intestine). These tubes are used in various clinical settings, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home care, to provide nutrition and hydration to patients who are unable to consume adequate amounts of food or liquids orally due to medical conditions such as dysphagia, neurological disorders, or gastrointestinal disorders.
