Course Description

Patients in critical care department require management by a multi-disciplinary team that includes experts in nutrition. Critically ill patients are at high risk of developing malnutrition or having pre-existing malnutrition aggravated due to the inflammatory response, metabolic stress, and catabolism associated with immobility. Malnutrition along with other complications such as infection and multi-organ dysfunction can contribute to prolonged hospitalization. Studies indicate that 15-70% of patients admitted to hospitals are malnourished, and this is undiagnosed in almost 70% of those affected. Approximately 60% of intensive care unit (ICU) patients suffer from gut dysfunction due to impairment in gastrointestinal (GI) motility, digestion, or absorption. GI dysfunction along with inadequate intake of calories leads critically ill patients to develop an energy deficit and lose lean body mass. Malnourished ICU patients experience immune dysfunction, weakened respiratory muscles, lowered ventilation capacity, and reduced GI tolerance. Hence, they are at risk of developing complications like ventilator dependence, gastro-oesophageal reflux, pulmonary aspiration, and infections that can lead to sepsis, multiorgan failure, and even death.

About 70 – 80% of these patients do not receive any nutritional support in the hospital. Management of the dietary and nutritional needs of these patients is crucial, and the evidence-based input of specialists in nutrition and dietetics is central to their care. It is well recognized that malnourished patients spend longer in hospitals and have more interventions and higher rates of mortality and comorbid conditions than their well-nourished counterparts. The Certificate in critical care nutrition course is a comprehensive, self-learning course that provides healthcare professionals the latest evidence-based information on implementing nutrition care in the ICU. The course is relevant to doctors, nurses, dieticians, and other healthcare professionals responsible for caregiving to the critically ill.
