NG or NJ tube. Through their nose, NG goes to the stomach NJ goes just below to the intestines for the nutrients. NG is more common. They make a special mix of the formula case by case depending on the nutrients that that person needs.

usually they are fed through a feeding tube, these are generally inserted through their side into their stomach, their diet is a liquid diet similar but higher in calorie and protein content to Ensure. They go to the bathroom ... they are kept in adult sized diapers and need to be changed regularly like a baby or they have colostomy bags and catheters.
