PMID:  3131887     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Septicaemia caused by inadvertent intravenous administration of enteral nutrition solution (ENS) is a potentially lethal complication of continuous enteral tube feeding. This report highlights the problem and makes a plea for administration sets that are not compatible with intravenous cannulas, and more stringent national bacteriological standards of preparation of ENS.
