Sessions

Part 1: Fluids and Electrolytes

Aug 1, 2017 1:00pm ‐ Aug 1, 2017 2:30pm

Identification: WEB170801

Nutrition support clinicians play a critical role in the diagnosis and management of fluid, electrolyte, and acid- base balance in acutely ill patients. A comprehensive understanding of these disorders is critical for optimizing management of parenteral nutrition, intravenous fluids, and electrolytes. Join our expert faculty for a review, update, and interactive case-based approach designed to assess, challenge, and enhance your knowledge in this area. This two part-webinar program is intended for dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, or any allied health professional desiring to learn a systematic approach to fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders and update their nutrition clinical skills set.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the homeostatic mechanisms responsible for sodium and water balance.
  2. Explain the common etiologies of hyponatremia and hypernatremia with specialized nutrition support.
  3. Compare current clinical formulas and their utility in developing treatment plans for hyponatremia and hypernatremia in the nutrition support population.
  4. Identify clinically relevant electrolyte (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium) disorders and appropriate dosage ranges for replacement.
  5. Review the etiologies of common electrolyte (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium) disorders with specialized nutrition support.
  6. Compare clinical estimations and their utility in developing treatment plans for common electrolyte (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium) disorders in the nutrition support population.
