One therapy for managing diarrhea in ICU patients receiving enteral

nutrition is administration of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid

(PHM). This laboratory study was conducted to determine if the

addition of PHM to enteral feeding formula adversely affected the

flow characteristics of the feeding formula through a small bore

feeding tube. Descriptive data was obtained from 72 trials of

feeding formula with varied infusion rates, formula osmolality and

temperature, and PHM concentrations. Two thirds (n=48) of the

trials were successful (PHM did not clog the tubing and obstruct

flow). The remaining one-third of the trials (n=24) were

unsuccessful. Successful formula infusion was influenced by

formula temperature and osmolality but not by infusion rate, PHM

concentration, or flow interruption. Formula with PHM followed by

formula without PHM was infused successfully regardless of infusion

rate or formula osmolality. Thus, the data from this laboratory

study indicate that when therapeutic doses of PHM are prescribed,

it is feasible for PHM to be mixed in room temperature feeding

formula and infused without clogging the feeding tube.
