Why we recommend this book:
Authored by two ASPEN members, Praveen S. Goday, MD, CNSC and Nilesh Mehta, MD, Pediatric Critical Care Nutrition combines clinical strategies with a compilation of available evidence to provide in-depth coverage of the nutritional needs of infants and children in the pediatric care unit.
The book is divided into three parts, examining metabolics, nutrition support, and disease‐related therapy.
- Metabolic alterations and nutrients in the critically ill child
- Nutrition assessment
- Disease-related nutrition: burns, solid-organ transplantation, renal failure, gastrointestinal issues, cancer, and obesity
- One chapter is dedicated to nursing considerations for delivery of enteral and parenteral nutrition support
Jennifer N. Sato, MS, RD, CNSC said, "One strength of this book is the ability of the authors to translate current research, some of which is based on adults, to application within the pediatric population, reviewing algorithms and concepts in well‐organized tables, charts, and key points throughout each chapter."
