This tube is generally placed into the duodenum, jejunum or stomach through mouth, nose or through percutaneous route. Enteral feeding is used to feed individuals who are unable to get an adequate diet through oral intake either from food or nutritional supplements, or patients who cannot eat/drink safely.
