An increase in the education and understanding of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base disorders is needed for all patient populations. The overall objective of this four part educational session will be to provide the leraner with the knowledge to accurately assess adult, pediatric, or neonatal patients given varying patient case scenarios. In this second session, the learner will be introduced to the nutritional based management of calcium and the predominantly intracellular electrolytes (i.e., magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus).
Recognize electrolyte disturbances involving calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus for various patient populations
Identify treatment strategies to manage electrolyte disturbances involving calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus for various patient populations
Create a nutritional management plan for a patient at risk for refeeding syndrome
