Use of Peptide-Based Formulations for Optimizing Enteral Nutrition Delivery, GI Tolerance, and Metabolic Management

Critical Care / Surgery
CE Accredited Program

Providing early enteral nutrition to the critically ill patient is not a question of “if” but of “how”, “what”, & “how much.” This program addresses these questions including the latest evidence to assist health care professionals managing complex patients receiving tube feeding. This program reviews peptide absorption including the role of the PEPT1 Protein Transporter and how a hypocaloric, low carbohydrate, very high hydrolyzed whey protein formula demonstrates positive outcomes in critically ill patients.
