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.

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.

Syringe feeding

Also known as bolus feeding, formula is placed into a syringe and flows slowly into the feeding tube.

Pump feeding

Formula is placed into a bag with tubing and is pumped through the tubing by an external mechanical pump.

Gravity feeding

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.
