Critical Care Nutrition
Our Nutritionists work with medical teams from all specialities to provide specialised, optimal nutritional support to critically ill/injured patients including patients with life-threatening conditions including trauma, severe infections, acute respiratory disorders and those recovering after major surgeries. They assess and identify patients with greater nutritional risks and recommend a customised plan and mode to provide the required nutrition (oral/ enteral/ parenteral), based on his or her current health condition.
A good diet helps heal faster. The diet is planned keeping in mind what the patient can and cannot in relation to the medical problem, and how much essential nutrients he or she requires on a daily basis to maintain good health and prevent/ manage diseases. The diet plan is created after taking inputs from the treating doctors.
