1. Chatzimichail T. Enteral Nutrition Design. [Submitted for publication to the Wolfram Demonstrations Project].

Abstract 

Enteral nutrition is the provision of part or all of a person's caloric requirements through the gastrointestinal tract. To design an enteral nutrition formula, the respective quantities of up to six selected foods (a meat, a cereal, a vegetable, a fruit and an oil) are calculated, if their combination complies with the user-defined specifications: the total required calories (10 - 3000), the fraction of the protein calories (0.15 - 0.40), the fraction of the carbohydrate calories (0.15 - 0.40), and the maximum total water content of the foods (1 - 3000 ml). The specifications are set using the sliders. The foods are selected using their respective menus. Each menu includes a "None" option.
