Patients who are unable to achieve an adequate nutritional intake via their gut are at risk of malnutrition and its many associated problems. They may, therefore, require feeding directly into a vein. Prescribing Adult Intravenous Nutrition is an introductory text offering the healthcare professional involved in nutritional support a practical guide to the broad principles and practice of adult intravenous nutrition.

Prescribing Adult Intravenous Nutrition describes:
  • why nutritional care is so important
  • what should be given
  • what can go wrong
  • how to deal with any intravenous feeding problems
  • how to organise aspects of nutritional care.

Numerous illustrations and case studies help to illustrate the principles discussed.
