Gastric Residual Volume in Feeding Advancement in Preterm Infants (GRIP Study): A Randomized Trial
Objective To evaluate the effect of not relying on prefeeding gastric residual volumes to guide feeding advancement on the time to reach full feeding volumes in preterm infants, compared with routine… Expand
O-042 Gastric Residuals In Preterm Infants As Predictor Of Tolerance To Early Enteral Feeds (grip Trial)
Background Evidence is inconsistent to support checking gastric residual volumes (GRv) in predicting feeding intolerance in preterm infants. GRv remains standard practice in guiding feeding… Expand
Individualized target fortification of breast milk with protein, carbohydrates, and fat for preterm infants: A double-blind randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND & AIMS In preterm infants, natural variation of breast milk composition makes it difficult to achieve recommended macronutrient intakes with standard fortification. Evidence suggests that… Expand
