Abstract

Enteral nutrition intolerance entails several complications such as increased gastric residual volume, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, and abdominal distension. The large quantity of Gastric Residual Volume may leads to aspiration of stomach contents, abdomen distension and ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP). Abdominal massage or rubbing therapy is one of the applicable and effective techniques that can be useful to increase the digestive system motility, enhance the intestinal activity and decrease intra-abdominal pressure and distention. Abdominal massage is highly effective in decreasing the gastric residual volume in mechanically ventilated patient fed by a nasogastric tube.

Keywords: Abdominal massage, gastric residual volume and mechanically ventilated patients.
