Improving physicians’ knowledge of parenteral nutrition modern trends

08 May 2020

The type of clinical feeding depends largely on the patient’s condition, disease and needs.

For example, surgical patients in resuscitation often have different needs from those receiving anticancer therapy, and completely different clinical nutrition is required for chronic dialysis patients.

Diet largely determines our ability to fight diseases in general and infections in surgery and traumatology in particular. The goal of clinical nutrition is to maintain or improve nutrient uptake by preventing and combating malnutrition, maintaining body tissue and functioning plasma protein stores, and preventing macronutrient and micronutrient deficiencies.

On April 24, 2020, the professional development of the hospital staff was organized using live broadcasting opportunities. In the framework of the project (project acronym HOSPITALS FOR CBC, No. LLI-396), associate professor of Riga Stradins University Oleg Sabelnikov introduced the doctors of the hospital to the latest methods of feeding patients through an intravenous catheter or parenteral feeding.

The hospital’s anesthesiologists, surgeons, surgeons and surgical nurses listened with interest to the following topics: Peculiarities of metabolism in severely ill patients and evaluation of patient nutrition. Evaluation of daily caloric intake. Complications of malnutrition. Types and indications of parenteral nutrition. The recommendations of the European Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society guidelines (in surgery and intensive care) and modern trends in parenteral nutrition in the world were presented. The lecture resulted in a very active discussion and exchange of ideas. 13 hospital doctors improved their qualifications.
