The Feeding Tube Challenge
On January 18th 2016, Sean White, Home Enteral Feed Dietitian in Sheffield and PENG HEF Clinical Lead, spent a week without all oral diet and fluids, receiving all his nutrition via a naso-gastric tube. He did this out of professional curiosity and to raise money for South Yorkshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association. During the week Sean kept a video diary reflecting on his experience. This footage has been edited into this short film, intended to give an insight into some of the challenges that home enteral feeding brings. A written account of the week can also be found at: http://www.nutrition2me.com/images/free-view-articles/free-downloads/NasogastricTubeFeeding.pdf
