When food and drink cannot be eaten, digested or excreted via the gastrointestinal tract, it might become necessary to use parenteral nutrition to ensure that a patient receives the energy and nutrients he or she needs to prevent starvation or malnutrition. Parenteral nutrition is administered via a catheter and bypasses the gastrointestinal tract entirely by supplying nutrients in a form that does not require digestion. Nutrition can be provided for infants and children as well as adults, but babies and children require very close monitoring to ensure that they receive an optimal level of nutrition.
