ABOUT Clinical Nutrition

Artificial nutrition (Total Parenteral Nutrition - TPN and Enteral Feeding) is a medical treatment based on the administration of nutritional principles which are necessary to prevent and cure patients in malnutrition conditions who, momentarily or permanently, cannot feed themselves naturally.
Natural feeding is in fact composed by a few steps: first, food is brought to the mouth, where it is then chewed, swallowed, and then digested with the consequent absorption and metabolization.

Feeding with assistance means that a person is being fed by another, or their food is whisked in order to overcome the incapacity of chewing correctly.

As opposed to these, artificial nutrition substitutes physiological functions, and therefore it is a substitutive medical treatment, like artificial ventilation or haemodialysis.

Nutritional blends, prepared in pharmaceutical procedures for this purpose, can be supplied to the body artificially (Galenic formulations), enterally (by different types of gastric or intestinal probes as in the case of percutaneous gastroendoscopy), or directly through a venal injection (parenteral nutrition - TPN), without passing thus, by the normal phase of swallowing.

Artificial Nutrition
1. Enteral feeding
2. Parenteral nutrition

1. Enteral feeding:
- Greater safety and easier supply
- Lower complication risk
- Significant lower costs

Takes place by:
- Nasogastric intubation (conditions permitting)
- Gastrostomy or Jejunostomy

Nutritional bags preparation:
- Clean and disinfected surface
- Staff's highest attention to hygiene
- Preference of ready formulas
- Avoidance of water/medicine addition

Enteral nutrition risks and complications:
- With nasogastric intubation:
Tracheal intubation
Hemorrhaging (bleeding), perforation, ulcer Obstruction
- With Jejunostomy:
Cutaneous infection
Bedsores
Obstruction
Nourishment infusion.

2. Parenteral Nutrition:
Is the method used for patients who need artificial nutrition and have a non-functioning intestine.

Administered by:
- Peripheral venous supply (with split - cannulae needle or butterfly needle)
- Central venous supply (through a catheter positioned in the upper cavity)

Parenteral nutrition recommended cases:
- Crohn's disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Diet limitations
- Diagnostic Iatrogenesis and its prevention
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- Post-operation
- Chronic cases of gastroenterology, pancreatitis, pancreas tumours

Parenteral nutrition's prescription:
- Has to be adapted to the patient
- Has to substitute muscular, immune and healing functions

Parenteral nutrition's principles:
- The initial benefit is not the weight gain or weight recovery, but the protein - energetic contribution
- Minerals and micro-nourishments supply

Parenteral nutrition's application types:
- Continuous (24 hours a day)
- Discontinuous
- Not exclusive, but complementary

Parenteral Nutrition's preparation:
- Plastic supply (amino acid)
- Caloric supply (lipid and glucose solutions)
- Electrolytic supply
- Medicine (oligo-elements and vitamins)

Preliminary actions:
- Preparation of the working surface
- Material arrangement

Gravity filling system:
- Always under a laminar flow
- Microcomponents volume adjustment
