Immunonutrition and Wounds

  • Video description

    Pressure injury guidelines suggest high calorie/high protein nutritional intervention that contains supplemental L-arginine and increased amounts of zinc and other antioxidants for malnourished or at-risk patients with stage 2 or greater wounds. Dr. Fife shares her process of screening for malnutrition and the additional evidence supporting a nutritional algorithm used in her wound clinic. Two case study examples of limb salvage demonstrate use of high protein L-arginine supplemented immunonutrition.
