Methods of enteral nutrition delivery
Your physician, along with the Barnes Healthcare Services’ nutrition support team, will determine the exact formula, delivery method, amount of formula and schedule to meet your specific needs.
Also known as bolus feeding, formula is placed into a syringe and flows slowly into the feeding tube.
Formula is placed into a bag with tubing and is pumped through the tubing by an external mechanical pump.
Formula is placed in a bag which is hung on an IV pole and suspended above the patient. The formula flows through the connected tubing and into the patient.
Types of respiratory therapies
We are committed to meeting the individual needs of each patient by providing respiratory care that improves quality of life.
We provide a full line of oxygen equipment including stationary and portable concentrators and the Homefill System. Our trained patient service technicians will provide education and set up of all equipment in the comfort of your home.

Adult and pediatric invasive and non-invasive ventilation
Working with the physician, discharge planner, and caregivers, we create a plan to get the patient home with the right care, equipment, and other services that might be needed.
Renown non-invasive ventilation program
An independent study found that modeling the Barnes Healthcare Services COPD Management program could save 2.6 billion dollars of annual direct COPD healthcare expenditures in the United States.
The study found our multifaceted intervention which involves initiation of nocturnal advanced PAP modality (AVAPS-AE), respiratory therapist-led respiratory care, medication reconciliation, appropriate oxygen therapy initiation, and patient
education led to significant reduction in rehospitalization.
