Wounds

Treatment of chronic wounds cost the U.S. healthcare system over $25 billion annually.  Costs are expected to rise due to increasing health care costs, an aging population and rising prevalence of diabetes and obesity.1  
For example, pressure injuries cause higher treatment costs due to an increase in readmission rates and a longer length of stay.2 Give your patients with or at risk of pressure wounds the specialized nutrition they need:3  

  • Adequate calories—approximately 30-35 kcal/kg/day 
  • Adequate protein—approximately 1.25 to 1.5 g protein/kg/day 
  • Vitamins and minerals—supplements should be given when deficiencies are demonstrated or suspected 
  • Adequate fluid—1 mL/kcal (adjust as needed) 
  • Supplemental L-arginine—stage 3, stage  4 or multiple pressure ulcers
