Case study: Nutritional management of a long-stay, complex gastro-surgical patient

13 Oct, 2023

A case study in the management of type 2 intestinal failure

Walter is a 79yo man living at home with his wife. He has a history of diverticulosis and multiple previous abdominal surgeries including sigmoid colectomy with Hartman's (reversed 20yrs ago) for diverticulitis complications.

Emma takes us through Walter’s admission to hospital with worsening abdominal pain and ultimately type 2 intestinal failure.

She explains the aetiology of type 2 IF and uses Walter as a case study to illustrate the management of type 2 IF using SNAP (Sepsis, Nutritional optimization, Anatomical clarification, Plan).
