About This Course

Objective of the course:

Practical and comprehensive program relevant to Indian context to empower Doctors and Dieticians to effectively contribute to patient care.

As malnutrition is an important factor in the survival of critically ill patients and is a prevalent consequence of hospitalization especially in critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit. Nutrient deficiency has been correlated with a prolonged length of ICU/ hospital stay and is strongly associated with increased morbidity and mortality among critically ill patients. Medical nutrition therapy may lessen morbidity, mortality and the length of icu / hospital stay.

Therefore a timely assessment of nutritional status in critically ill patients is important to prevent or minimize nutritional crisis and to monitor nutritional therapy. Early nutritional screening is a key factor in appropriate nutritional intervention that may reduce the length of ventilator dependency, icu or hospital stay, mortality.
