Critical Care Nutrition: Adults and Pediatrics

Apr 18, 2018 4:00pm ‐ Apr 18, 2018 5:30pm

Credits: None available.

Since the publication of the 2016 American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition and Society of Critical Care Medicine's Guidelines for the Provision and Assessment of Nutrition Support Therapy in the Adult Critically Ill Patient, numerous randomized controlled trials have challenged the recommendation for early enteral nutrition, suggesting early exclusive parenteral nutrition is safe, feasible, and associated with equal outcomes. New data has also challenged the recommendation for supplemental parenteral nutrition in the critically ill adult and will be discussed thoroughly in this webinar. Additionally, ther will be an evaluation of the 2017 ASPEN Comprehensive Nutritional Guidelines for Critically Ill Pediatric Patients and their application to patients in the inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. Highlights include laboratory monitoring parameters for long-term parenteral nutrition, ideal additives and supplementation to parenteral nutrition and recommendations to reduce the incidence of central-line associated blood stream infections.

Objectives:

  • Describe guideline recommendations for use of exclusive and supplemental parenteral nutrition in the critically ill adult.
  • Identify and appraise landmark randomized controlled trials comparing early enteral versus early exclusive parenteral nutrition in critically ill adults.
  • Identify and appraise landmark randomized controlled trials comparing early enteral plus supplemental parenteral nutrition to enteral nutrition alone.
  • Cogitate on scenarios for exclusive and supplemental parenteral nutrition.
  • Describe long-term parenteral nutrition lab monitoring in the inpatient and outpatient settings

Promoting Safety of the PN Use Process Through Nutrition Support Competencies

Jun 7, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Jun 7, 2018 2:30pm

Credits: None available.

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a high alert medication that is commonly used in the hospital and home care settings and is a life-sustaining therapy for patients who cannot meet their nutrition and hydration needs by oral or enteral means or have contraindications to enteral therapy. The PN use process (ordering, order review, compounding, and administration) is associated with risk, however the use of evidence based protocols for PN management focus on minimizing PN related errors and have demonstrated that PN can be safely used in appropriate patients. Safe and effective use of PN requires input from skilled clinicians of multiple disciplines. Ensuring the competency of all team members is essential to promoting safe practices and maximizing clinical outcomes throughout the PN use process. This webinar will focus on strategies for ensuring competency in PN ordering, order review and verification, compounding, and administration to patients. It will also discuss methods of evaluating the competency of clinicians involved in providing PN within an institution.

Objectives:

  • Identify procedures for PN ordering, order verification, compounding, and administration that promote safe PN practices.
  • Describe risk mitigation strategies for PN ordering, order verification, compounding, and administration
  • Construct a method to assess and maintain competency for clinicians involved in providing PN

Use of Alternative Lipid Injectable Emulsions: A Whole New World of Products

Aug 21, 2018 2:00pm ‐ Aug 21, 2018 3:30pm

Credits: None available.

Lipid injectable emulsions (ILEs) are a dense source of calories and are a source of the essential fatty acids (EFAs), important for cell membrane development and precursors to key modulators involved in cellular pathways of the immune response. In the early 1970s, the ILE approved for use in the United States was a solely soybean oil-based fat emulsion (SOFE) and until recently was the only FDA approved product available in the US market. While very little has changed in the provision of ILEs over the last four decades in the United States, multiple products have come to market in other areas of the world such as Latin America, each with the intent of being an ideal oil source. With the recent approval of newer ILEs in the US market, opportunities for expanded use of alternative lipid sources have been possible. This webinar will include a discussion of the use of recently FDA approved ILE products, particularly the mixed-oil based fat emulsion (MOFE) with practical tips from those with experience using the products.

Objectives:

  • Compare and contrast the various lipid injectable emulsions currently available
  • Describe the benefits and challenges in using the newer lipid injectable emulsions
  • Determine the appropriate use of newer alternative lipid injectable emulsions in neonatal, pediatric, and adult populations
