Nutrition on Hand, Before You Need it.
Enteral feeding is the delivery of a nutritional replacement product or formula directly into the gastrointestinal tract through a feeding tube. Enteral feeding is used to nourish Patients that are unable to eat or drink properly, or that cannot receive enough nutrition orally. A tube is either inserted down the nasal passage, or through the stomach wall to deliver the enteral formula directly into the stomach or small intestine. Short-term enteral Patients are usually fed through nasogastric tubes (nasal), while long-term enteral Patients are normally fed through enterostomy tubes (through the stomach).
Enteral formulas are configured to deliver a certain level of calories and nutrients. There are many different types of formula depending on the Patient’s condition and nutritional needs. Clinicians usually prescribe a branded product from a specific manufacturer. The product has a formula that contains a specific mix of water, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and fat. Manufacturer branded product formulas usually have an equivalent formula from a different manufacturer, delivering the same required nutrients. It is likely that if insurance reimbursement does not cover a scripted brand, an alternative is available.
Enteral Pumps and Supplies
Feeding tubes are attached to a pump, syringe, or gravity bag to deliver the formula. Pumps may be stationary or portable, which use rechargeable batteries for feedings outside the home. Pumps can be set to deliver formula continuously or intermittently at a specific flow rate. Alarms on pumps serve to warn of leaks or clogs in the system. Some pumps have a dual flow feature, which allows for the delivery of both formula and water that is used for flushing and hydration. Patients can also receive feeding and flushing from a large syringe, often called a bolus. A gravity bag is used by hanging the formula in a bag on an IV pole to deliver flow at the gravitational rate. Landmark handles all the accompanying supplies, such as feeding bags, replacement tubes, tube extension sets, enteral administration sets, dressing, flushing kits and IV poles.
At Landmark, we keep nutrients and supplies on hand and ready to be delivered from our local, climate-controlled office. Our customers never have to worry about how long it takes to get an order from an out-of-state warehouse. Our Enteral Specialists work to find the most cost-efficient formula for the Patient’s needs, and we proactively monitor formula inventory and supplies to keep the nutrition flowing. We handle the entire order, including assessment, monitoring, and arranging for training and nursing services.
We offer Nestle and Abbott branded formulas, although not all specific formulas are covered by insurance reimbursement. If a specific formula is not covered by insurance reimbursement, then there usually is another formula that will serve the same nutritional needs.
Our signature Landmark Level of Service means we will coordinate with our Patients and their clinicians to help achieve the best possible outcome from equipment and Enteral formula. We are available 24 /7.
