The current i on w nutritional status of the patient is determined by several factors, including the patient’s weight and how it compares Pu ol bl e o with ideal and usual weights (Table 1,page 7); the duration is h of weight loss if it has occurred; visceral protein status; lab- hi oratory values indicative of fluid, electrolyte, and potential ng n p nutritional deficits; clinical condition; and whether the r G art i ro patient may be nourished by oral, enteral, or parenteral up wit means.1,4,8 During PN, both pharmaceutical and metabolic calculations are used in the assessment of nutrition sup- un ho port.
