Diet and Nutrition in Critical Care


Finding all the information necessary to treat or meet the nutritional requirements of patients who are severely ill or establish new protocols has historically been problematic. This is addressed in Diet and Nutrition in Critical Care. This major reference work encapsulates the latest treatments and procedures to meet the dietary and nutritional needs of the critically ill. Where evidence is available this is presented. However, where evidence is absent, the authors highlight this and provide guidance based on their analysis of other available data and their clinical experience. Diet and Nutrition in Critical Care is a two volume set which addresses the needs of all those concerned with diet and nutrition in the critically ill and covers General Aspects, Enteral Aspects, and Parenteral Aspects. Each volume is stand alone and is further divided into separate sections. The Sections in the General Aspects are:

General conditions in the severely ill
General metabolic effects and treatments
Assessment protocols
General nutritional aspects
Specific nutrients
Adverse aspects 

The next two volumes Enteral Aspects and Parenteral Aspects contain the following sections:

General aspects and methods
Specific nutrients
Specific conditions
Adverse aspects and outcomes
Comparisons or dual parenteral and enteral support or transitions Preclinical studies

The authors recognise the limitations in simplistic divisions and there is always difficulty in categorising treatment regimens. For example, some regimens involve transitions from one feeding protocol to another or the development of co-morbid conditions and in some cases enteral support may be supplemented with parenteral support. This complexity however, is addressed by the excellent indexing system. Contributors are authors of international and national standing, leaders in the field and trendsetters. Emerging fields of

science and important discoveries relating to artificial support will also be incorporated into Diet and Nutrition in Critical Care. This volume represents a one stop shop of material related to enteral and parenteral support and is essential reading for those specialising in intensive and critical care, dietitians, nutritionists, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, pharmacologists, health care professionals, research scientists, molecular or cellular biochemists, general practitioners as well as those interested in diet and nutrition in general.

Nutrition, Exercise and Epigenetics: Ageing Interventions (Healthy Ageing and Longevity)


This book focuses on the three most important aspects of ageing research: nutrition, physical exercise and epigenetics. The contributors discuss ways that age-related epigenetic imprints such as DNA methylation and histone acetylation are modified by these two interventions. The emphasis on epigenetics helps to illuminate the underlying mechanisms of anti-ageing interventions, as ageing and disease are predominately epigenetic phenomena.

Among the highlights are chapter-length discussion of such topics as:  how anti-inflammatory action of calorie restriction underlies the retardation of ageing and age-related diseases (Chapter 3); epigenetic modification of gene expression by exercise (Chapter 5); the role of functional foods and their bioactive components in bone health (Chapter 8); and an account of the first decade of a study of calorie restriction in nonhuman primates, conducted by the National Institute on Ageing.

Clinical Management of Overweight and Obesity: Recommendations of the Italian Society of Obesity (SIO)


These guidelines make recommendations regarding the management of individuals with a body mass index greater than 25.0 kg/m2 and cover all age groups, from children to the elderly, as well as various patient subsets. A range of measures to yield health benefits are set out, including healthy eating plans, increased physical activity, and behavioral modifications to help patients to manage obesity. In addition, recommendations are made on the use of bariatric surgery and the new antiobesity drugs. Throughout the process of developing the recommendations, every attempt was made to ensure use of a rigorous, evidence-based approach.  The guidelines are promoted by the Italian Society of Obesity (SIO) and were formulated in compliance with a prespecified process overseen by a steering committee. They are intended for use by a wide range of clinicians, including general practitioners, primary health care nurses, and primary health care professionals, and will hopefully prove of value in combating the obesity epidemic not only in Italy but across Europe and elsewhere in the world.

Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease Nutrition Desk Reference


While the gastrointestinal tract ingests, digests, and absorbs nutrients, the liver transforms nutrients, synthesizes plasma proteins, and detoxifies bacteria and toxins absorbed from the gut. It is therefore not surprising that gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases have a major impact on the nutritional state of the individual. Integrating nutrition and the gastrointestinal system, the Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease Nutrition Desk Reference brings together experts in the field of nutrition, gastroenterology, and hepatology to offer dietary, nutritional, and natural therapies for gastrointestinal and hepatic ailments in order to improve overall health.

Providing a review of the digestive tract, liver, and core concepts, this important reference presents the nutritional consequences and considerations of digestive disorders. Contributors examine the role of nutrition in gastrointestinal and liver disease, including alcoholic and nonalcoholic liver disease, viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, malabsorption, colorectal disease, transplantation, pancreatitis, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Of special interest to the practitioner are chapters on food allergy and intolerance, the effects of medicinal plants, and the role of fiber in the gastrointestinal tract. The reference also addresses the challenges of managing nutritional issues for hospitalized patients and covers eating disorders and ethical issues.

Other key topics include:

  • Obesity
  • Clinical applications of probiotics
  • The impact of micronutrient deficiencies
  • Genomic applications for gastrointestinal care
  • Drug-drug and drug-nutrient interactions
  • Guidelines for performing a nutrition assessment

This comprehensive reference offers a toolbox of key concepts, charts, tables, algorithms, and practical therapeutic strategies for practitioners involved in gastrointestinal and hepatic nutrition care.

Dr. Mullin maintains a website discussing the integration of both Eastern and Western (conventional) medicines to help patients overcome their digestive illnesses.

Nutritional Care of the Patient with Gastrointestinal Disease


Nutritional management is an integral part of the management for virtually all gastrointestinal diseases. Nutritional Care of the Patient with Gastrointestinal Disease fills a current void in nutritional education by providing a reference for diagnosing and managing common nutritional issues related to gastrointestinal disease. Its separation into focused chapters allows it to be read cover to cover or in selections, making it useful on a need-to-know basis or for more diligent study.

The book presents case studies in each chapter to illustrate the main topic. They include new landmark examinations on the role of nutrition and diet in the management of eosinophilic esophagitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The book also addresses contemporary concerns with the use of probiotics, including their effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) either individually or in combinations in given clinical situations.

This book identifies and satisfies a need for evidence-based clinical knowledge. It provides up-to-date information on nutrition that practitioners need and serves as a guide to recognizing and administering nutritional care and support to patients with gastrointestinal disease. The new and updated information combined with supporting material make this book a necessary resource for study, research, and practice in understanding nutrition’s role in gastrointestinal health.
