Nutrition Support for the Critically Ill
Unlike the more general resources in nutrition support, this book is focused on the special circumstances of patient feeding in critical illness. It covers mechanics of feeding, timing, metabolic and immunological roles that nutrients play. It goes into detail to cover disease-related malnutrition as distinct from under-or-over nourishment and the impact of nutrition support in either form of malnutrition.
"Useful for a wide variety of practitioners, including ICU doctors, hospitalists, and nutrition support physicians, Nutrition Support of the Critically Ill provides practical bedside advice and simplified recommendations for practice."
