Nutritional Care

Nutritional Care

When medical conditions prevent you from adequately feeding yourself, Baxter provides clinical nutrition options to help you regain your health. 

Malnutrition can be a problem for people with serious health conditions; for some newborns who are preterm; for patients who have lost the ability to consume food; for those who have undergone major surgeries; and for chronically ill patients.

Getting the nutrients required to regain and maintain your health can often be difficult or impossible through normal consumption, or even tube-fed solutions. Sometimes it can be necessary for patients to receive nutrition intravenously.

To help patients regain health and strength, we support doctors, nurses and clinical nutritionists to help ensure that they get the nutrients needed.

Home Parenteral Nutrition

Chronic illnesses that affect the digestive system, such as the inability to swallow, inflammatory bowel diseases, bowel obstruction or a shortened intestine may also require the need for daily clinical nutrition therapy to replace or supplement normal eating. Home parenteral nutrition (HPN) was introduced in the early 1970s and today it’s a widespread therapy option around the world. Patients on home parenteral nutrition can get the nutrients they need, in the comfort of their home rather than in a hospital setting.
