Nutricia Satellite Symposium

Nutricia’s Satellite Symposium took place on Sunday 4th September titled ‘Time to Step Up: Challenging the Status Quo to Enhance Patient Recovery’. The symposium looked at the central role of muscle in supporting optimized patient outcomes and recovery and how medical nutrition can support patients with cancer, stroke or frailty to minimize muscle loss with timely, assertive and high protein nutrition support.

Did you miss Nutricia Post-ICU Summit? Watch the various videos below to learn more:

The summit included a series of 4 presentations outlining the current findings of post ICU nutritional care from across the world.

It is clear that while ICU nutrition support has gained attention in previous years, the research is now pointing to the relevance of optimizing nutrition during post ICU care, the time when patients are better able to assimilate nutrition support for recovery.

It also highlights some of the real issues patients face when discharged from ICU which has enormous impacts on their ability to safely eat and drink sufficiently.  Post Extubation Dysphagia being one example of this.

In short studies across the world in different ICU populations seem to conclude similar findings:  NG tubes are constantly prematurely removed without any assessment on a patients ability to eat adequately both in ICU and at ward level.

Post ICU patients rarely manage more than 50% of the nutritional requirements on oral diet alone and those with full or supplementary enteral nutrition are much more likely to meet their full needs.
