Viscosity, and Microbiological Analysis of Commercial Enteral Feeding (CEF) versus Blenderized Enteral Feeding (BEF) on Level III-Hospitals in Metro Manila, Philippines

Many healthcare facilities and providers are reviewing protocols on the use of commercial enteral feeding (CEF) and blenderized enteral feeding (BEF) among hospitalized tube-fed patients for the improvement in delivery of enteral feeding. This study is a randomized complete block design (RCBD) that evaluated enteral feedings on Level-III government hospitals in Metro Manila, Philippines. The statistical tests used were Ttest on two-way population, ANOVA with repeated measures and Pearson Correlation Coefficients. It was found out that the hospitals were beyond the standard range for relative humidity, room, refrigerator and food temperature. All macronutrients & micronutrients, except total fat and dietary fiber, were homogenous despite the differences in the recipes used
