Solutions for nutritional therapies

Oral Nutritional Supplements

Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS) are effective, non-invasive solutions recommended when recovering from acute illness or during malnutrition. Patients are typically able to consume normal food but may not meet the recommended dietary needs.

Enteral Tube Feeding

Enteral Nutrition is administered to patients who are unable to get sufficient nutrition orally even though the gastrointestinal tract is functioning. This requires feeding into the gastrointestinal tract using a tube. 

Parenteral Nutrition

Parenteral Nutrition covers ‘intravenous feeding’, where nutrition is administered directly into the blood circulation, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. This is needed when a patient is unable to get sufficient nutrition through normal food, oral nutritional supplements or through enteral nutrition.
