ENTERAL AND PARENTERAL NUTRITION SUPPORT
When a patient cannot maintain adequate nutrient intake by mouth, a doctor may prescribe home nutrition support. Enteral nutrition support is when the nutrition formula is given to a patient through a tube that enters the stomach or intestines. Enteral nutrition is appropriate when the gastrointestinal system is functioning.
When the gastrointestinal system is not functioning adequately, parenteral nutrition may be prescribed.

These therapies have been used for many years to sustain and improve the nutritional status of individuals that cannot meet nutritional needs by mouth or by enteral nutrition.
