New Progress in Nursing for Early Enteral Nutrition after Esophageal Carcinoma Surgery

Lina Liu

The body experiences negative nitrogen balance for a long time after operation due to fever, stress and loss of body fluids as well as digestive juices. Hence, nutritional support appears to be extremely important. Nurses needed to pay more attention in solving the problem of post-operative malnutrition.
