Royal Canin Live: Critical Care Nutrition and Assisted Feeding

Nutrition is an important part of case management, especially for critically ill patients. Nutrition can help maintain strength, promote healthy immune function and proper wound healing, and provides energy to enterocytes. Overall, nutrition can help improve morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. It is not uncommon for hospitalized patients to be in negative energy balance. In this webinar, we will discuss the metabolic complications that arise as a result of anorexia/hyporexia, and discuss feeding tube and diet selection for critical patients. Case examples will be utilized to enable participants to apply a step-by-step approach to creating an assisted feeding plan for a critical patient.
