About this book


Critically ill and critically injured patients require specialized nutrition support to avoid the complications of progressive malnutrition. There is a paucity of information providing practical solutions to these difficult clinical problems. From Nutrition Support to Pharmacologic Nutrition in the ICU focuses on the theoretical and practical aspects of the management of this high-risk patient population. Each chapter presents a state-of-the-art discussion of nutritional and metabolic issues relevant to this resource-intensive patient population and contains current references, liberal tables and figures, and the personal insights of recognized international leaders in this field.
