Calculating Parenteral Nutrition: Video 2 is a continuation of Video 1. This video demonstrates how to calculate the estimated calorie and protein needs of our non-critical, post-operative client who is receiving parenteral nutrition. This video is roughly 5 minutes video and uses information from Video 1 to compare/contrast the calorie and protein needs in the parenteral nutrition formula to determine if it is sufficient to meet the clients estimated calorie and protein needs. To aid in the understanding of each of these components important information is highlighted to enable you to better follow along. This is a staple for anyone desiring to successfully understand parenteral nutrition.

“The thing I like the most about Kim’s videos is how knowledgeable and approachable she is. She makes it feel like she is there to support you! I have watched Kim’s videos from the beginning of my internship, to studying for my RD exam, to finding my first job. She felt my virtual cheerleader!”
