Postoperative tube feeding of maxillary surgery patients with the high molecular drinking and tube feeding solution Fresubin

Infusionstherapie Und Klinische Ernährung
W Schmidt, I Podlesch


41 patients, who underwent maxillo-facial surgery received mostly for 10 days the instant formula diet Fresubin liquid during the postoperative period. The diet was applied via a nasogastric tube. Feeding had to be interrupted in 5 patients (12.5%) due to nausea, vomitus and diarrhoea. The incidence of nausea, diarrhoea and eructuation with short duration was in relation to the days of tube feeding 0.9%. The mean frequency of defacation was 0.7/24 hours. Giving about 25 kcal/kg body weight/day we did not see significant changes of body weight, of the Na, K and Ca serum concentrations or other effects. Caused by operation and anesthesia we found a decrease of the hemoglobin, hematocrit, albumin in the serum, and an increase of SGOT and SGPT.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
