An Elemental Diet that is Ready-to-Feed, Vivonex® RTF is a 100% Free Amino Acid Formula for severely compromised GI patients. There is only 10% calories from fat to support tolerance and reduce pancreatic stimulation, and it is useful in stressed, catabolic patients.
Requires minimal digestive functionality for assimilation while providing benefits associated with continued use of the GI tract, and can be used for tube feeding or oral supplementation. It features a closed system with SpikeRight® PLUS port to ensure the proximal-end enteral connector system design is incompatible with IV equipment.
