Abstract

The immature body systems of premature infants continue to be challenging and ever changing. Caregivers work to find effective ways to provide adequate nutrition and to find a feeding regimen each neonate tolerates. Many health care providers are faced with the question of intolerance and its meaning. One of the most concerning problems in feeding a neonate is the presence of gastric residuals or pre-feeding aspirates. There are many other symptoms associated with intolerance; however, this paper will focus on those associated with gastric residuals.
