Abstract
"Nutritional Management of the Surgical Patient provides the first comprehensive evidence-based overview of the nutritional and dietary therapies for surgical patients. It takes clinicians through every stage of surgery, from pre-operative and immediate post-operative care, through to long term recovery and survivorship. This book describes the impact of surgical procedures and their complications and the effect these have on nutritional status as well as the nutritional strategies utilised to manage patients in these settings. The result is a valuable survey of this essential aspect of surgery.
Nutritional Management of the Surgical Patient features case studies which capture both typical patients and the more unusual cases to help clinicians understand the impact of nutrition in both circumstances. The textbook also details a range of surgical procedures to support underpinning knowledge of the mechanism behind nutritional intervention.
Readers will also find:
Consideration in each chapter of both short- and long-term nutritional management
Discussion of potential long-term complications such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, bile acid diarrhoea, micronutrient deficiencies and osteoporosis
Questions to support consolidation of knowledge and promote understanding in clinical context
Nutritional Management of the Surgical Patient is a must-have for surgeons, surgical dietitians, trainees and all healthcare professionals involved in the care of surgical patients." --publisher
