A Medical Food
XtraCal Plus is a medical food. Use under supervision of a qualified medical specialist.

We recently got a young brain injury patient who could not tolerate an adequate amount of tube feeding – we tried several different types of formulas, different rates through a pump at different times, bolus feedings and different medications to promote gastric emptying – no matter what we did, he would always regurgitate his feeding after about 500 mls over a 24 hour period. The physician asked me if there was anything else we could do before sending the patient out to get a central line placed for TPN.
