Complete Tubefeeding, by Eric Aadhaar O’Gorman

As the title promises, this book is thorough. Eric has drawn on his own experience as the “happy owner of a feeding tube,” as well as others’ experiences and research, to craft a great basic resource. This book should be useful whether you are new to tube feeding or have experience. Part one, “The Tube Basics,” covers the history of tube feeding; types of tubes; feeding methods; tube, equipment, and site care; common complications; the emotional aspects of tube feeding; and more. Part two, “Tube Food and Nutrition,” has a short section on commercially available enteral formulas, and a lot of information on blending “real food” for tube feeding (what Eric calls “a blended diet”), from “pros, cons, and controversies” to almost thirty pages of recipes. More information (including how to order, for $21.99) is available on Amazon.
