‐ Aug 8, 2017 2:30pm

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. Describe the role of the lungs, kidneys and buffer systems in acid-base maintenance.
  2. Discuss basic principles involving metabolic and respiratory acidosis/alkalosis.
  3. Learn how to interpret ABG's in common acid-base disorders.
  4. Describe common acid-base disorders seen in patients receiving nutrition support.
  5. Discuss appropriate management of acid-base disorders in nutrition support patients.
  6. Evaluate case studies involving acid-base disorders and parenteral/enteral nutrition.
