Why we recommend this text:
Edited by two ASPEN members, this text provides a review of the current knowledge in both the mechanics of nourishing the critically ill and the metabolic and immunological roles of nutrients.
In-depth chapters discuss disease-related malnutrition as distinct from under-or-over nourishment. The appropriate timing and indications for nutrition support are provided as well as advanced techniques for improving practice. A broad range of issues related to interdisciplinary practice are addressed.
Useful for a wide variety of practitioners, including ICU doctors, hospitalists, and nutrition support professionals in pharmacy, dietetics and nursing, Nutrition Support of the Critically Ill provides practical bedside advice and simplified recommendations for practice.
