Nutritional Support of the Geriatric Patient

  • Brad M. Dworkin
Part of the Contemporary Geriatric Medicine book series (COGM, volume 2)


The past two decades have witnessed a dramatic change in our ability to provide adequate nutrition for our patients. At the present time, this frequently involves the use of enteral tube feedings or intravenous alimentation. This chapter will provide a practical background for the use of these advanced enteral and parenteral nutritional support techniques in the geriatric patient.
