A.S.P.E.N. Nutrition Support Core Curriculum: A Case-Based Approach - The Adult Patient
This reference is a must have if you are a clinical dietitian in ICU or are being called upon to provide recommendations for tube feedings or TPN. At 800+ pages, it feels like a phone book for a mid-sized city, but this book the only one we've ever found that goes into the detail necessary if you want to be qualified to hold your own in deep discussions with surgeons and actually convince them of the benefits of starting nutrition support. It is also a must read if you are preparing to take the ASPEN certification exam.
