Tube Feeding Administration
Body Positioning

The pateint's body position is also important when administering a TF for both continuous drip and bolus feedings. The patient's head should be elevated at least 30 degrees during and after the feeding to prevent regurgitation.

If the patient is receiving a tube feeding into the intestine, positioning is not critical.
