Introducing Nutrition Management 2.0
A comprehensive, guideline-driven approach that unites nutritional assessments with technological innovation to prevent feeding-related complications in critical care.
Hospital nutrition, particularly in the ICU, where accurate care is often a matter of life and death, has not been at the forefront of clinical education. However, research has shown evidence of the underlying challenges concerning nutrition-related in-hospital complications. We decided to take intensive care nutrition therapy to the next level by making it more precise, personalized and safe to feed patients in the ICU.
Redefining Scoring Systems
Current scoring systems do not take into account feeding-related elements which actively impact critically ill patients.
Creating a New Paradigm
Optimal nutrition therapy is a key component of critical care. Yet ICU patients are routinely subjected to the risks of malnutrition, tube malposition and pneumonia. Prof. Pierre Singer explains how Nutrition Management 2.0 is changing the traditional approach and provides a new and comprehensive nutritional therapy practice.
“The gap between the nutritional needs, the prescription and the nutritional administration is very large, resulting in inadequate medical nutrition therapy.
Personalized nutrition should associate the best evaluation of the patient’s needs, an appropriate prescription and an optimal use of enteral and parenteral routes of administration. Monitoring of this administration is key for a high efficiency evaluation.”
