If you need a better understanding of fluid and electrolyte management and if acid-base frequently puzzles you, then this training series is for you. Learn how to diagnose and treat the various extracellular and intracellular electrolyte disorders in your nutrition support patients. Develop a better understanding of arterial blood gases, acid-base balance, and how the nutrition support practitioner plays an important role in the correction of these abnormalities in patients. The faculty will integrate cases and sample scenarios to help maximize your comprehension and application of these challenging topics.
Provide the most frequent etiologies of hypo- and hyperkalemia, as well as hypo- and hypermagnesemia in hospitalized patients receiving nutrition support.
Determine clinical estimates of replacement therapy for hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia through case-based examples in the nutrition support population.
