Malnutrition and Obesity Resources

Malnutrition and Obesity Resources

November 22, 2021


Many of you have asked for guidance on identifying and treating malnutrition in patients with obesity in the past. During ASPEN’s recent Malnutrition Awareness Week, experts from Ohio Health Trauma and Surgical Services and the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing delivered a webinar on caring for these patients in the ICU, including how to define the impact of their nutritional status and recommendations for interventions. The recording is now available and free to view.  Related to this, ASPEN developed this 2-page resource on caring for patients with obesity in the ICU.
