Feeding & Nutrition

 

Enteral Nutrition is a service we provide for patients with a medical need for nutrition. Patients are administered nutrition via a tube placed in the patient’s gastrointestinal tract due to an inability to orally feed. Medical Plus Supplies provides enteral pumps and nutrition on a monthly basis as part of a patient’s enteral therapy.

 

Common Conditions

 

  • Oral Cancer

  • Tracheostomy

  • Malnutrition

  • Short bowel syndrome

 

Medical Plus Supplies offers to their patients the Zevex Infinity enteral pump.  The Infinity enteral feeding pump allows both pediatric and adult tube fed patients the ability to maintain a normal lifestyle, resulting in increased compliance with prescribed feeding regimens.

 

Accurate

Maintains +/- 5% accuracy at any flow rate (0.1 ml/hr to 600 ml/hr) and when operated in any orientation, allowing patients to comply exactly with prescribed feeding regimens.

 

Portable

Weighing less than 1 pound, the pump is easily carried in a custom-designed carry pack for extended use, resulting in fewer limitations to a patient's normal lifestyle and increased feeding schedule compliance.

 

Rugged

Designed to perform consistently well under a wide variety of conditions. Does not require any regularly scheduled maintenance and can be cleaned by simply rinsing under running water. 24-hour battery life with a 6-hour charge time.
