Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition and nutritional care have gained wide clinical and scientific interest during the past decades. The increasing knowledge of metabolic disturbances and nutritional assessment in chronic and acute diseases has stimulated rapid advances in design, development and clinical application of nutritional support. No patient should have insufficient intake of energy and substrates in modern hospital care treatment. The parenteral route can be used successfully when other alternatives of nourishment are difficult or impossible. Nowadays, fully adequate nutrition can be performed by giving total parenteral nutrition (TPN). The regimen can be individualized to cover different needs. In the short term we can compensate for disturbances in the longer term we can maintain nutritional balance.
