A nutrition prescription should be formulated as part of the nutrition intervention for persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) and pressure ulcers, which includes the energy, protein, fluid and micronutrient requirements. Evidence suggests that additional energy and protein is needed for optimal healing of pressure ulcers. Fluid and micronutrient needs will vary depending on the person's status. See the Assessment of Nutritional Needs for Pressure Ulcers for determining levels of each of these.
Over- or underfeeding of persons with spinal cord injury may lead to metabolic and clinical complications and subsequent poor outcomesProvision of nutrition support, including enteral or parenteral nutrition, to nutritionally compromised spinal cord-injured patients may be associated with patient complications including, but not limited to:AspirationInfections, including catheter-related infectionsMetabolic complications resulting from under- or overfeedingGastrointestinal complications, including diarrheaProvision of excessive or inadequate fluid may lead to inappropriate hydration status and subsequent poor outcomes.
Significant organizational costs are associated with the treatment of pressure ulcers in persons with spinal cord injury, including the provision of staff, equipment, supplies, blood work, facilities, nutritional supplements and nutrition support required for appropriate careOrganizational expenses incurred as a result of treating pressure ulcers may be reduced by the provision of adequate nutrition care, as appropriate nutrition care may reduce healing time and thus reduce organizational costs.
One clinical practice guideline provided evidence-based expert recommendations regarding nutrition care for pressure ulcers, including recommendations for assessment of energy, protein and micronutrient needs, and monitoring of nutrition and hydration status (Consortium for Spinal Cord Medicine, 2000)Three nutrition support textbooks provided general recommendations for nutrition care in wound healing, including recommendations for micronutrient intake (ASPEN Nutrition Support Manual 2005, ASPEN Nutrition Support Core Curriculum 2007, ADA Nutrition Care Manual, Baranski and Ayello 2008)See 'Citations Not Used in Evidence Analysis' for other works consulted.
Ophthalmologist Mark Breazzano, MD, shares research into an increase in vitamin A deficiency, which can cause vision problems. Pediatric gastroenterologist Aamer Imdad, MBBS, discusses the iron content of food and its importance. Pharmacists Eric Balotin and Meaghan Murphy tell how people in need can obtain prescription medications.
Aamer Imdad, MBBS: We typically don't use that in high-income countries, including United States. The risk factors for malnutrition are kind of different in low- and middle-income countries compared to high-income countries. Having said that, the resources available in developed countries are much more easily available, and the food insecurity and the community prevalence of infectious disease is lower in higher-income countries, so the number of children who have severe acute malnutrition is actually much smaller in high-income countries like United States. So we end up treating them with the traditional foods that we have depending on the age. For example, for very young kids, we have infant formulas that we can feed by mouth, or if we need to use a feeding tube, like a nasogastric tube or a gastrostomy tube. So we can help them go through nutritional rehabilitation with the resources. 59ce067264
