You will not want to miss this webinar that will focus on managing micronutrient deficiencies, including electrolytes in adult patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS). Patients with SBS are at risk of developing several electrolyte and micronutrient deficiencies due to malabsorption and excessive GI losses. Extent of malabsorption is influenced by length, location, and functional capacity of remnant bowel. Strategies for identifying, preventing, and treating specific electrolyte and micronutrient deficiencies in patients with SBS will be addressed. Those electrolytes to be discussed will include potassium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorous. Those vitamin and trace elements deficiency states to be discussed will include vitamin D, zinc, copper, and iron. Another challenge relates to transitioning from IV to oral electrolyte/micronutrient supplementation when weaning PN/IV therapy in patients with SBS. Oral doses that are vastly higher than normal are often required to prevent/treat deficiency. The faculty will utilize case studies throughout the discussion to illustrate key concepts.
1. Identify electrolyte/micronutrient abnormalities that adult patients with short bowel syndrome are at risk of developing.
2. Describe strategies for managing select electrolyte/micronutrient deficiency states.
3. Utilize guidelines for transitioning from IV to oral electrolyte/micronutrient supplementation when weaning PN/IV therapy.
