Note Metabolism of Macronutrients -- Screening and Assessment of Malnutrition -- Malnutrition in Neurologic Diseases -- Methods of Clinical Nutrition -- Nutritional Support in the Neurointensive Care Unit -- Nutritional Support in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis -- Nutritional Support in Chronic Degenerative Diseases -- Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Medical Management of Dysphagia -- Dysphagia Rehabilitation -- Neuronutrition: An Emerging Concept
This book offers focused and concise coverage of all issues relating to malnutrition in the field of neurology, and in particular addresses practical aspects of nutritional support from a neurology perspective. In addition to providing basic knowledge on important nutritional concepts (body metabolism, assessment and diagnosis of malnutrition, epidemiology, enteral/parenteral nutrition), detailed information is presented on nutritional support for various neurologic disorders handled in a variety of settings, including the neurointensive care unit. Much consideration is also given to the diagnosis and management of dysphagia, which is a common and highly critical cause of malnutrition in these patients. Finally, the newly developing concept of neuronutrition (or brain foods) - the use of certain nutrients for treatment of neurologic disorders - is discussed. By providing practical solutions to commonly encountered challenges in the nutritional management of neurologic patients, this book will prove a valuable resource for practicing neurologists in a wide variety of fields. It will also be very useful for medical personnel from other specialties such as clinical nutrition, critical care, and geriatric medicine
