Abstract

Administration of pancreatic enzymes (pancrelipase) to adult patients with cystic fibrosis when receiving enteral nutrition through a feeding tube is challenging. A number of techniques for preparing and administering the drug may result in complications that include feeding tube occlusion and inadequate enzyme delivery to the patient. A series of inpatient encounters is described.
