Intended for any healthcare professional working with surgical patients, including medical students, residents, surgeons and internists, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and physical therapists, The Practical Handbook of Perioperative Metabolic and Nutritional Care focuses on topics from the history of surgery and metabolism, to organic response to stress. Based on clinical processes, the author explores screening, assessment, and the impact of nutritional status on outcomes, in addition to investigating nutritional requirements, including macronutrients and micronutrients. Chapters examine wound healing as well as metabolic and nutritional surgical preconditioning, including coverage of preoperative counseling, preoperative nutrition, and preoperative fasting. Physical exercise is addressed, as well as nutritional therapy in the form of oral supplements, and enteral and parenteral approaches. Additional topics explored include nutrition therapy complications and immunomodulatory nutrients, pro, pre and symbiotics, postoperative oral, enteral and parenteral nutrition, enteral access, vascular access, fluid therapy, and more. With up-to-date information, practical and cost-effective data, this resource is critical for translating theory to practice.
