Description

This is your opportunity to learn more about common clinical scenarios that pediatric practitioners face and receive practical suggestions so that you can formulate recommendations to take back to the bedside of your patients. Pediatric patients in need of nutrition support can present complicated clinical challenges to the inpatient and outpatient practitioner. Three cases will be discussed, specifically an overweight neurologically impaired child, a former premature infant with history of NEC, and a 10 year old with ileal resection on all enteral feedings. Practical information on meeting micronutrient needs with a low calorie diet, use of blenderized diets, provision and monitoring of minerals and trace elements, and vitamin supplementation will be discussed. The faculty for this program have varied backgrounds and will address these challenges from each perspective.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify resources for safe provision of a blenderized diet
  • Assess need for minerals, trace elements, vitamins and essential fatty acids in the premature patient with short bowel syndrome
  • Determine how to supplement and monitor vitamins in enterally fed patient with prior ileal resection
