  24. 25. Patients at high risk for RS <ul><li>Anorexia </li></ul><ul><li>Protein-energy malnutrition </li></ul><ul><li>Patients from skilled nursing facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Unfed for 7-10 days </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic disease patients </li></ul><ul><li>Hx of excessive alcoholic intake </li></ul><ul><li>Morbid obesity with massive wt loss </li></ul>
  25. 26.

  26. 27. Prevent RS <ul><li>For severe malnutrition , critically ill , severe trauma , and burns patients, </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Correct electrolytes abnormalities before initiation of nutrition support, even serum level is normal </li></ul></ul></ul>
  27. 28.

  28. 29. Initiation of Nutrition Support <ul><li>START LOW & GO SLOW </li></ul><ul><li>Initiate at ~25% of the estimate goal and, </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced over 3-5 days of goal rate </li></ul>
  29. 30. Monitoring Gastric Residual Volume (GRV)
  30. 31. Method to Detect Aspiration <ul><li>Blue Dye Method & Glucose Oxidase Strips are no longer used </li></ul>
  31. 32. Guideline for checking GRV <ul><li>For critically ill patients (both adult and pediatric), </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Check GRV every 4 hours </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>For non-critically ill patients, </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Check GRV every 4 hours during the first 48 hours </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Decrease to 6-8 hours to monitor GRV level </li></ul></ul></ul>
  32. 33. Interpreting the Relationship Between Aspiration and GRVs <ul><li>GRV of 200-500mL should stimulate a step-wise approach to assess the potential of GI intolerance. </li></ul><ul><li>In the absence of GI intolerance, EF should not be stopped if GRV <400-500mL. </li></ul><ul><li>In critically ill patients, a GRV ≥ 250mL should be accepted to improve the delivery of EN </li></ul>
  33. 34. Use of Prokinetic Agent <ul><li>If the GRV is ≥ 250mL after a second gastric residual check, a promotility agent should be considered in adult patients. </li></ul>
  34. 35. When to hold EF? <ul><li>For all TF adult patients </li></ul><ul><li>GRV > 500mL </li></ul><ul><li>For continuous feeding, </li></ul><ul><li>GRV ≥ hourly rate </li></ul><ul><li>For bolus feeding, </li></ul><ul><li>GRV > half of the previous feeding volume </li></ul>
  35. 36. Labeling <ul><li>EN order should include: </li></ul><ul><li>Patient demographics (pt name, DOB, wt, location, MRN) </li></ul><ul><li>Formula name </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery site/device (NG, PEG, PEJ) </li></ul><ul><li>Administration method and rate </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Bolus/intermittent/continuous/cyclic </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Volume </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Rate of administration </li></ul></ul></ul>
  36. 37. Enteral Formula Safety <ul><li>Sterile, liquid EN formulas should be used in preference to powdered, reconstituted formulas whenever possible </li></ul><ul><li>Store unopened commercially-available liquid EN formulas under controlled conditions (dark, dry and cool) </li></ul><ul><li>Formulas reconstituted in advance should be immediately refrigerated, and discarded within 24 hrs of preparation if not used </li></ul><ul><li>Discard formulas that exposed to room temperature for longer than 4 hrs </li></ul>
