NTD 414, Nutrition Support Quiz Name:_______________________________ Directions: This quiz will serve as your final exam. Included are one brief case on enteral nutrition and one brief case on parenteral nutrition. Please be as thorough as you can in answering each question. Show your work for any calculations. Each case is worth 15 points for a total of 30 points. Enteral Case: KS is an 82 YO female who awoke from sleep unable to move her right side or speak. She was brought to the ER where a CT scan of the brain revealed a large hemispheric stroke (CVA). Her PMH includes HTN and hypercholesterolemia. She smokes ½ PPD and drinks alcohol socially. She is retired and lives alone. She does not have any medication or food allergies. Because KS awoke with a neurologic deficit, the time of onset of the CVA is not known. She was admitted to the ICU and was evaluated for swallowing ability by a speech- language pathologist. She was found to have delayed swallowing and pooling of oral secretions and was determined to be unsafe for an oral diet. The physician consulted for a dietitian to recommend an enteral nutrition prescription for the patient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
