Critical Care

To help improve outcomes, patients in the ICU require early and appropriate nutrition based on their condition/diagnosis. Abbott Nutrition can assist you in providing the appropriate formula to meet your patients’ specific nutritional needs. An algorithm published in 2011 can provide guidance on how, when, and what to feed your patients based on clinical conditions.1 Other Critical Care Guidelines 2,3 may also be helpful in guiding you in selecting the appropriate product that will meet your patients' individual needs.
