Sufficient energy and essential nutrients are vital for normal growth and development in childhood. Ideally, nutrition should be provided orally. However, if the gastrointestinal system is functional, enteral tube feeding can be used when nutritional requirements cannot be provided orally, thus providing nutritional benefits and enabling positive disease management in pediatric patients. Postoperative care in children allows monitoring of the position and functionality of the tube; performing nutrition intolerance, growth, hydration, and nutritional assessments; and performing metabolic and complication follow-ups...

Overuse of stress ulcer prophylaxis has a considerable cost burden on patient and healthcare systems. This study aimed to determine the adherence level of stress ulcer prophylaxis use with American Society of Health-System Pharmacists guidelines in a teaching hospital in Shiraz, Iran. From March to September 2013, we enrolled all eligible patients admitted to the general medical wards of Shahid Faghihi Hospital, Shiraz, Iran. According to American Society of Health-System Pharmacists guidelines, patients who had at least one major or two minor risk factors for stress ulcers and received stress ulcer prophylaxis were labeled as adherent, others were considered nonadherent...

Our objective was to compare the efficacy of different lengths of rubber tube (6 French) on patients with esophageal stent implantation performed using a silk thread. We measured the effects in terms of pain and foreign body sensation felt in the pharynx and esophageal mucosa of the patients. A retrospective analysis was conducted using records of 65 patients who were divided into 3 groups. Group A had 20 cases with the distal end of the tube toward the nasal cavity, Group B had 21 cases with the distal end of the tube reaching the nasopharynx without exceeding the soft palate, and Group C had 24 cases with the distal end of the tube toward the upper end of the stent...

There is insufficient information available in the current literature regarding how nurses assess, intervene, and advocate for patients with indwelling gastric and enteral tube feedings. To understand ways in which nurses could be more supportive, a survey, distributed through private online social media groups, was designed to elicit preliminary data from patients who are currently, or had recently been treated, with a feeding tube. This survey examines nurse behaviors that patients identify as actually or potentially helpful with the physical, emotional, social, and logistical aspects of having a feeding tube...

Constipation is a common health problem in relation to hospitalization. This randomized controlled trial aimed to investigate whether advice from a home care nurse after discharge had an effect on self-reported signs of constipation. A total of 59 patients were included in the study on the basis of their self-reported signs of constipation evaluated using the Constipation Assessment Scale. Advice from the home care nurses was given on the intake of fiber and liquid and mobilization related to scorings on the Constipation Risk Assessment Scale, the administration of laxatives, and referral to a physician when needed...

Pediatric patients with intestinal failure often require central venous catheters for extended periods of time for parenteral nutrition, blood sampling, and medication administration, increasing morbidity, mortality, and costs. In 2007, we reported a central line-associated bloodstream infection rate of 7.0 per 1,000 catheter line-days in our pediatric patients with intestinal failure. On the basis of this high rate of catheter-associated infections, we developed and implemented a central line care curriculum for patients/family caregivers and home health nurses...

Although colon cancer is preventable, it is still the second leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States (). Colonoscopy is as yet the gold standard for colon cancer prevention (). The success of colonoscopy is dependent upon the quality of the bowel prep. The problem addressed in this study was the impact of hospitalization on bowel prep quality. The participants in this study were 54 consecutive inpatients older than 18 years and 52 consecutive outpatients older than 18 years who were scheduled for colonoscopy in the Endoscopy Lab at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital...

The incidence of Clostridium difficile infection is on the rise worldwide, causing high mortality rates and costing patients, hospitals, and insurance companies millions of dollars annually. Fecal microbiota transplants successfully treat recurrent C. difficile infections unresponsive to standard pharmacologic treatment such as flagyl, vancomycin, or rifaximin. Evidence in the literature provided the foundation for the development and refinement of this fecal microbiota transplant protocol. During the initial phase of the project, the protocol included patient selection criteria, donor screening/selection, infection control, fecal processing and delivery, and patient pre and postprocedure education...

Functional constipation is a common problem in Turkey that affects up to 10% of children. Reflexologists claim that reflexology can be beneficial in the treatment of constipation. The aim of this randomized controlled study was to determine the effectiveness of reflexology in treating functional constipation in children. Thirty-seven children who were referred to a pediatrician with functional constipation as defined by the Rome III criteria were recruited to the study. After the physician's diagnosis, two groups (intervention/control) were created...

There is no valid and well-established tool to measure fatigue in people with chronic hepatitis B. The aim of this study was to translate the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI) into Persian and examine its reliability and validity in Iranian people with chronic hepatitis B. The demographic questionnaire and MFI, as well as Chronic Liver Disease Questionnaire and EuroQol-5D (to assess criterion validity), were administered in face-to-face interviews with 297 participants. A forward-backward translation method was used to develop a culturally adapted Persian version of the questionnaire...

Clinical practice shows that patients with constipation are more likely to have a poor bowel preparation for colonoscopy. Consequences of poor bowel preparation include missed lesions, increased complication rates, and higher costs. Research on preparing constipated patients for colonoscopy with Food and Drug Administration-approved medications is scarce. This study included 372 patients and compared the effectiveness of high-volume (4 L) polyethylene glycol solution (GoLYTELY) with low-volume (2 L) polyethylene glycol solution with ascorbate (MoviPrep) in constipated and nonconstipated adults...
