About

This was a randomized controlled study including 80 infants with cerebral palsy and dysphagia. The Participants were evenly divided into the observation group (with intermittent oro-esophageal tube feeding, n=40) and the control group (with persistent nasogastric tube feeding , n=40). Nutritional status and physical development, condition of dysphagia, and pneumonia before and after 3-month treatment were compared.

Full description

In China, for nutrition support in the infants under one year of age with cerebral palsy and dysphagia, persistent nasogastric tube feeding is the mainstream choice. However, the efficacy of persistent nasogastric tube feeding is not sufficiently satisfactory, necessitating the exploration for a more effective and safe nutrition support approach. Therefore, this study reports the clinical effect of intermittent oro-esophageal tube feeding compared to persistent nasogastric tube feeding in the infants with cerebral palsy and dysphagia who received systemic therapy. Method This was a randomized controlled study including 80 infants with cerebral palsy and dysphagia. The Participants were evenly divided into the observation group (with intermittent oro-esophageal tube feeding, n=40) and the control group (with persistent nasogastric tube feeding, n=40). Nutritional status and physical development, condition of dysphagia, and pneumonia before and after 3-month treatment were compared.

100 participants in 2 patient groups

The observation group
Experimental group
Description:
All participants were given routine rehabilitation treatment by professional rehabilitation therapists, including exercise therapy, guided education, psychological therapy, acupuncture and massage therapy, to promote the development of motor and cognitive function, as well as to improve intellectual development. Besides, swallowing function training was also provided, including direct training, indirect training, and compensatory training.Within 4 hours of admission, the observation group were required to undergo nasogastric tube removal and initiated Intermittent Oro-Esophageal Tube Feeding for nutrition support.
Treatment:
Behavioral: systemic therapy
Device: Intermittent Oro-Esophageal Tube Feeding
The control group
Active Comparator group
Description:
All participants were given routine rehabilitation treatment by professional rehabilitation therapists, including exercise therapy, guided education, psychological therapy, acupuncture and massage therapy, to promote the development of motor and cognitive function, as well as to improve intellectual development. Besides, swallowing function training was also provided, including direct training, indirect training, and compensatory training.The control group was given nutrition support with persistent nasogastric tube feeding , of which the tube passed through the nasal cavity into the stomach.
Treatment:
Behavioral: systemic therapy
Device: Persistent Nasogastric Tube Feeding
