What Is a Gravity Feeding Bag?

A gravity feeding bag is a type of feeding bag that relies on the power of gravity to control the flow of nutrients from the bag through the tube and into the body. Like other feeding bags, gravity feeding bags are used to treat patients who may find it difficult or impossible to eat a sufficient amount of food on their own.

Gravity feeding bags are some of the most commonly-used feeding bags in the modern world. They may be used in healthcare settings like hospitals and clinics to help patients who require a steady supply of food, as well as in home environments for a patient’s long-term feeding needs, or in hospices and similar settings.

Like other types of feeding bags, gravity feeding bags may be used by patients of different ages, from young children all the way up to elderly patients, and they can help people with many disorders and conditions.

How Does a Gravity Feeding Bag Work?

The way in which gravity feeding bags work is quite simple. The formula or food mixture will first need to be placed into the bag, which can then be connected to some tubing and suspended on a hook or stand, usually a few feet higher than the patient. The power of gravity will then allow the formula to flow through the tubing at a steady and controlled rate. The tube can be connected to various ports around the patient's body, like an oral or nasal port, or a port around the stomach area which delivers the food directly to the stomach for digestion.

Gravity Feeding Bag Sizes 

Like other kinds of feeding bags, gravity feeding bags are available in a broad range of sizes to suit different needs and situations. There are 500ml gravity feeding bags, for example, as well as much larger gravity feeding bags that can contain up to 3,000 or even 4,000ml of fluids.

Gravity Feeding Bag Types

We can divide gravity feeding bags into different types, based on their size and intended use. Pediatric gravity feeding bags, for example, are usually smaller than average and aimed for use in infants or children, while standard gravity feeding bags are suited for adult usage.

Gravity Feeding Bag Uses

The main function of a gravity feeding bag is to deliver a steady, gravity-controlled flow of food or formula from the bag along a tube and into the patient’s body, via a port or tube of some kind. These bags are used to help patients who find it hard to eat on their own.
