Nutrition support – a simple approach
The recently recorded ESICM COVID-19 webinar on Nutrition of the critically ill COVID-19 patient is now available on re-play.
Prof. Mette Berger (Professor of Intensive Care, CHUV Lausanne and Chair of the ESICM Metabolism, Endocrinology & Nutrition (MEN) Section) and Prof. Claude Pichard (Dept. of Internal Medicine, University of Geneva) cover a simplified approach to feeding both intubated and non-intubated COVID-19 patients that will provide the best metabolic support.
An awareness of the metabolic, nutritional and organisational risks, the different phases of delivery, and the individual needs of these patients can assist a better recovery afterwards.
