Addition through Subtraction? Advancing Nutrition Care in the STICU

Addition through Subtraction? Advancing Nutrition Care in the STICU

The Safe Elimination of Routine Gastric Residual Volume (GRV) Checks

Presented by Phillip J. Prest, D.O., FACOS, FACS.

This webinar will discuss the experience of formalizing a standardized enteral nutrition feeding program at an ACS verified level one trauma center.  Specific areas of discussion will be on the initiation of a volume-based feeding program and the safe elimination of routine gastric residual volumes.  Additional areas of consideration will be the unique challenges of enteral feeding within a surgical and trauma intensive care unit (STICU), as well as the most appropriate way to predict nutritional needs.

Learning Objectives

 At the end of the session, the participate should be able to:

1. Describe the importance of early enteral nutrition in surgical and trauma patients
2. Discuss the evidence supporting volume-based feeding in this population 
3. Discuss the evidence in support of eliminating routine gastric residual volume checks
4. Discuss the applicability of these principles to COVID-19 patients


After participating in this webinar, you may ask the instructor questions by using the interactive "Discussion" tab. All participants will have access to this discussion board to interact with the instructor and other attendees.
