Reply To: Does your organization place NG/GT for trophic feeds during transplant?
Yes and you can check out my presentation from the APHON conference on this for more details 😉
NG placed by end of chemo for all, G-tube placed prior to BMT for all who you expect to need a NG for >3 months, and formal nutrition screening is done by a RD at pre-BMT eval, admission, and 2x/week during admission. Informal screening (i.e. discussion of their current nutritional status) every morning in rounds

What do your organizations use for nutritional support during bone marrow transplant? TPN vs Enteral nutrition vs a combination of the 2. How often do you perform a nutritional screen?
