Who should receive a nutrition consult?

   All patients who receive enteral feedings or parenteral nutrition (TPN) must receive a
   nutrition consult.
   All patients admitted with one or more of the following diagnoses also must receive a
   nutrition consult:
   ⇒ Failure to Thrive
   ⇒ Diabetes Mellitus
   ⇒ Morbid Obesity
   ⇒ GI/Metabolic Disorder
   Any patient who is screened at nutritional risk through the Admission Nursing Assessment
   by answering ‘yes’ to any of the following questions:
   - Is the patient unable to tolerate oral feedings?
   - Does the patient have any food allergies?
   - Does the patient have problems chewing or swallowing?
   - Has the patient had an acute weight loss of >10% PTA?
   - Has there been significant (10%) weight loss or gain in the past 6 months?
   - Has there been failure to grow or gain weight (per caretaker)?
   Any patient for which a Registered Dietitian can be of assistance, please consult as needed,
   for example:
   - Food allergy
   - Introducing solids
   - Formula preparation
   - Etc.

How do I order a nutrition consult?

1. Write for a “nutrition consult” in the physician orders.

2. Patients requiring a nutrition consult may also be identified in multidisciplinary patient care

3. The nutrition consult will be entered into the computer by Nursing and sent to Nutrition

4. Nursing may request an order for a nutrition consult from Medical Services for reasons other
   than those listed above if deemed necessary.

The speech-language pathologist receives referrals for children who have feeding problems
and/or oral-motor (movement) dysfunction. Some of the behaviors these children may exhibit

   1. excessive drooling,
   2. poor seal around the nipple and loss of liquid during bottle feeding,
   3. choking or coughing during feeding,
   4. inability to suck on a nipple,
   5. excessive oral defensiveness (dislike of touch or taste in or near the mouth),
   6. signs of neurological impairment, such as abnormal biting on the spoon and abnormal
      movements of the face and mouth during feeding,
   7. difficulty making the normal transition from simple to more advanced food textures,
   8. taking an excessively long period of time to consume a meal, due to lack of coordination
      or aversive behaviors,
   9. history of aspiration pneumonia

When a child is identified as having any of the above characteristics, particularly when they
interfere with feeding and weight gain, a speech-language pathologist should be consulted for a
feeding/ oral-motor assessment. During this assessment, the SLP will evaluate the child’s ability
to perform various kinds of oral movements, and will probably observe the child’s response to
stimuli in or around the mouth, including use of various food textures, liquids, and utensils.

Before making a referral for a feeding evaluation, it is important to remember that at certain
times of their development, some children will exhibit aversions to particular types of food. Or,
they may eat willingly with one caregiver but not with another. Some children require the
consistency of the same person feeding them each day. Some babies take an unusually long time
to consume their formula because they require one or more “breaks” or rest stops, within the
feeding session. This is particularly true of children with respiratory difficulties.

   •    If children on TPN are to be admitted to La Rabida, discharged from La Rabida, or
        transferred as inpatients to another institution, you must notify 3 persons: Nutrition
        Services (Megan Aronson – SEA service, Aimee Henrikson – SAND service); Dr. Izhar
        Qamar; and Ellen Newton, RN (UCCH). This will allow for coordination of care.
•   Residents and medical students are prohibited from drawing blood for chemistries or
    cultures from central lines, to limit infection. Only staff certified in these procedures are
    allowed to touch the lines. Certified nurses can be identified, on all shifts, by contacting
    the nursing office (Patient Care Administration) at La Rabida x 524 (Administrative

•   TPN-dependent children, transferred to UCCH, may be admitted only to the Peds GI
    Service. Others will serve as consultant.

•   TPN-dependent children at La Rabida have long term nutrition care plans, designed to
    reduce TPN dependency and facilitate discharge home. Please do not adjust this plan,
    without permission of Nutrition Services.

•   When children on Home TPN are admitted, they may bring in some of their unused home
    bags for use in La Rabida (to avoid wastage). Some Home TPN is in the form 3:1, with
    Intralipid premixed into the solution. Such solutions will not pass through the filters
    used routinely for La Rabida TPN. Special 1.2-micron filters are available in the
    Pharmacy, for use with Home 3:1 bags. Home bags must be checked by Nutrition
    Services (Aimee Henrikson or Megan Aronson) or by the Pharmacy before use and must
    be kept refrigerated, until used.
                                          PEDIATRIC TPN GUIDE
1.  Determine calculation weight (non-edematous, non-dehydrated)
2.  Determine volume allowed for TPN (total volume = HAL + IL)
3.  Source of calories
    a. Carbohydrate: Dextrose: start at ~ 4-5 mg/kg/min and advance daily by 1.0-1.5 mg/kg/min; usually do not
       exceed 10 (>12 yrs); 10-12.0 (<12 yrs) mg/kg/min, especially if patient is NPO. Pts. On cycled TPN (see
       #17) may go above these limits since TPN is infusing over shorter time, therefore faster rate. Check BG
       CHEMSTRIPS daily. Do not exceed 10% in a PIV and usually 25-30% in Central line; Central PICC line
       (confirmed by x-ray): as central line.
       Peripheral PICC: 12.5%
                              To determine mg/kg/min – (% Dext. X infusion rate)/(6 x wt)
    b. Fat: Intralipid: start at 1.0 gm/kg using 20% Intralipid and advance 0.5 gm/kg every day to help achieve
       caloric goals. Check triglyceride q weekly. Do not advance if TG > 200 mg/dl.
                     To determine cc/hr: 1.0gm x wt (kg) x 100cc ÷ 24 hrs. e.g. 20% IL = 20 gm/100 cc
                                                kg                  20 gm
    c. Protein: Amino Acids: Using Travesol (don’t need to write on line); Trophamine for stressed, transplant,
       immunosuppressed, or Crohn/UC patients, start at 1.0 gm/kg and advance daily by 0.5 gm/kg/day to protein
       goal as stated. CYSTEINE may need to be added at 40 mg/gm of amino acids in HAL bag to help prevent
       precipitation of Ca and Phos. Will need to limit protein in renal/liver failure to 1.0 gm/kg.
4. Determining kcal content: Caloric goals: individualized; see nutritional assessment in chart
         See Neonatal TPN Guide re: calculations
5. Calcium: 15-100 mg Ca Acetate (Chloride)/kg; 79 mg CaAc2 provides 1mEq Ca & 2mEq Acetate; 74 mg
    CaC12 provides 1mEq Ca and 2mEq Cl; 50-100 mg Ca Gluconate/kg (usually a max of 4.0 gm Ca
    gluconate/bag for teenagers and young adults; cross out mEq; write in mg Ca Ac/Cl/gluconate
6. Phosphorus: Usually start at 0.3-1.0 mmol/kg; write as mEq of cation
    (1 mmol Phos = 1.5 mEq KPhos or 1 mmol Phos = 1.3 mEq Na Phos). Restrict in renal failure.
7. Magnesium: 0.2-0.5 mEq/kg. Restrict in renal failure; requirements may increase with Ampho
8. Electrolyte requirements:
         a. Sodium: 3.5 mEq/kg
         b. Potassium: 2-4 mEq/kg; restrict in renal failure; requirements may increase with Ampho
         c. Acetate, chloride; per CO2, chloride values
9. Vitamins: <11 yrs: write PEDS: 2 ml/kg up to 5 ml maximum
                   >/ = 11 yrs: write MVI-12: 10 cc/day + Phytonadione 1 mg
10. Trace elements: < 11 yrs: write PEDS: neonatal and postneonatal: 0.2 cc/kg
                         >/ = 11 yrs: write MTE-4; 1cc/d
                     Withhold in cholestasis; decrease dose to 0.1 cc/kg if urine output inadequate
11. Zinc: May be needed if pt has ostomy output or diarrhea; contact PNSS
12. Selenium: 2 mcg/kg to max of 30 mcg per day
13. Heparin: Not used for CL unless infusion rate is slow (<10cc/hr). PCVC’s require heparin @ 1U/cc
14. TPN Renewals: Write” “Renew HAL & IL order from date of last completely written order”
                   Renewals can be written in every order space, not only in the ‘TPN renewal’ box
15. Peripheral TPN: Do not exceed 800 mOxm/L. Dextrose and Protein contribute the most; limit dextrose to
    maximum of 12.5% and protein to 1.5% (gm amino acids/vol of Hal)
16. To avoid precipitation: We use precipitation curves to determine Ca and Phos limits in TPN
17. Cycling: Determine # of hrs in cycle (e.g. 24 → 20 → 16 → 12). Divide volume of HAL by 1 hr less than
    desired (e.g. if 20 hour cycle, divide by 19 = rate for 18 hours then divide rate in half to give the rate for the 1st
    hour and the 20th hour)
         I/O, blood glucose: 1-2 X/wk while advancing; then as needed; esp. if h/or ↑ BG or on steroids
         weight: at least qo day; head circumference: (if less than 3 yrs) q 2 weeks
         length/height: q 2 weeks
         kidney profile, Ca, Mg, PO4: q day until stable, then 2-3 times/week
         liver profile and triglyceride level: baseline, then 1x/wk
