Nutrition Support Competency Questions
Does every diabetic patient need a diabetic formula? What types of renal formulas are available? What is a peptide-based formula? What are the pros and cons of concentrated formulas? These and many more questions are answered in the Nutrition Support Skills course. Best of all, I break down enteral nutrition calculations into simple, straightforward lessons so even if you’re not a math whiz, you will quickly become proficient at busting out a tube feeding order.
If the gut works, use it. Sounds simple enough, but indications and contraindications for parenteral nutrition are often confusing. I dedicate several modules of the Nutrition Support Skills course to parenteral nutrition and delve into all the details of PPN, TPN and intravenous access.
This is a loaded question. The short answer is maybe and the long answer is seriously complicated. I explain it all in the Nutrition Support Skills course.
It’s no surprise that fiber is my favorite topic. This functional little nutrient (or is fiber a non-nutrient?) is so crucial, but can be dangerous for some patients at some points in critical illness. A thorough understanding of the benefits of fiber and the situations where we need to use caution is so important for the nutrition professional.
