This 2-part webinar program will educate the learner on identifying micronutrient deficiencies using physical exams, clinical signs and symptoms, and biochemical tests. The first program will focus on pediatrics and the second program will focus on critically ill adults. Research on specific nutrients (Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Iodine, Manganese, Iron, Vitamin D for example) and recommendations on correcting those deficiencies (or toxicities) with pharmacotherapy/dosage will be discussed. Both sessions will focus on practical tips using case-based scenarios and up-to-date research studies.
Assimilate recent research data on micronutrients with practical guidelines for safe and effective applications in the ICU.
Identify which critically ill patients will most likely benefit from supplementation of selenium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, and thiamin therapy to improve outcomes.
Devise patient-specific micronutrient management plans based on available clinical information through case studies.
