Small Bowel ObstructionMedical Nutrition Therapy Case Study Samira Jones, PhD, MPH Baptist Health Systems Dietetic Internship Presentation Outline Introduction- Anatomy & Phys of Intestine Background- SBO Hospital Admission- R.L. Patient Profile

Nutrition Care Process- Pt. LOS in Hospital Summary/Conclusions Healthy Bowel In adults, the small intestine is 19 ft. (6.5 m) and large intestine is 4.9 ft. (15 cm). Small Bowel Obstruction-SBO A blockage in normal downward flow of intestinal

contents Background-SBO Etiology Mechanical Obstruction *Luminal Misc Neopla sia *Extramural Adhesi ons Hernia Crohn s

Background- SBO Epidemiology- Adhesiolysis accounts for 300,000 hospitalizations; 800,000 days of inpatient hospital care, and $1.3 billion in healthcare costs (2006). Etiology- 75% are caused by post-operative adhesions and hernia from prior GI surgery. Pathophysiology- SBO may occur in as many as 15% of laparotomy pts. up to 2 yrs s/p procedure. Pts. Have high risk for re-current obstruction of 42% over

10 yrs. More than SBO pts. require surgery with a 5% mortality rate d/t complications. Background-SBO contd Clinical Diagnosis Ultrasonography Intraluminal contrast studies CT scan Once SBO is confirmed Laparotomy is performed to differentiate between simple and complicated

obstruction, severity, and location. SBO: Surgical Treatment Three step approach Resuscitation Investigation Therapy Therapy-Treatment Lysis of Adhesions Bowel resection SBO: Medications

Motility Agents Octreotide Metoclopramide Stool softeners, laxatives Multiple Pain Medications SBO: Macro & Micronutrients Carbohydrates-CHO Simple CHO rather than complex CHO

Protein Severe malnutrition is rare Fats & Fat Soluble Vitamins Higher risk of malabsorption B-12 High risk of malabsorption SBO: Fluids and Electrolytes

MNT 1. contd Diet Order: NPO for GI surgery; TPN- AA 100 g, Dex 150 g, lipids 20% 250 ml= 1410 kcal @ 58.75 ml/hr PES: Inadequate oral intake r/t altered GI function d/ t small bowel obstruction, as evidenced by nausea/vomiting 3 days PTA and current NPO x 5

days. NI-2.1 Risk: High Monitoring & Eval: Pt. will begin at 1400 kcal and advance to goal of 1600 kcal/ml/day as medically appropriate to meet estimated needs. MNT 2. Follow-up assessment: RD Intern 5/10/11

Diet order: NPO-TPN 1602 kcal @ 66 ml/hr providing 280 g Dex, 100 g Amino acids, and 28 g Lipid Labs: Na 131 L, Glu 111 H, BUN 7 L PES: Increased nutrient needs r/t altered GI function as evidenced by pt. currently on TPN because of NPO > 8 days. NI- 5.1 Risk: High

Monitoring & Eval: Pt. will meet 1000% of estimated needs at goal TPN rate to preserve LBM while unable to meet PO nutrition. Surgery 1. 9 days post hospital admission: 5/11/11 Laparospopic Lysis of adhesions Hiatal hernia repair Checked Fundoplication- Functional Bowel Exploration- MD discovered 50 cm of dead ileum*

MNT 3. GI surgery (s/p 5 days) Follow-up assessment- RD 5/16/11 Diet order: NPO-TPN (100 g AA, 280g Dex, 250 ml 20% lipids)= 1852 kcal @ 66.6 ml/hr (up from 58.4 ml/hr from last assessment) Labs: Glu 162 H

PES: Altered GI fxn r/t to GI surgery as evidenced by KUB findings of severe postoperative ileus. NC-1.4 Surgeries 2 & 3. 7 days s/p GI surgery (2) Externalization of VP Shunt 9 days s/p GI surgery (3) Laparotomy Abdominal washout End Ileostomy- lower left quadrant MNT 3. S/p 3 days w/ Ileostomy

Diet order: NPO-TPN = 100 g of AA, 280 g Dex and 250 ml of 20% lipids daily = 1852 kcal/d Labs: Glu, TG, Na, K all WNL; Phosphorus slightly elevated but pharmacy aware and was addressing it. RD recommendations: Once GI status permits, Osmolite 1.0 @ 10 ml/hr advancing 10-20 ml/hr every 6-8 hrs. as tolerated. Goal= 70 ml/hr, provides 1780 kcals, 75 g protein, 1411 ml free water;

flushes and fluids per MD. Taper PN with goal to discontinue as EN increases. Modified diet- Low fiber diet once medical status permits. MNT 4. S/p 7 days Ileostomy Diet order: NPO-TPN= 100 g of AA, 280 g Dex and 250 ml of 20% lipids daily, provides 1602 kcals Labs: Glu 142 H

Osteomy output= 710 ml RD recommendations: Advancement to low fiber diet once GI status permits. Continue PN, but taper with goal to D/C as PO intake improves. Monitor total energy intake over next 5 days for goal of 1600 kcals, 77 g protein MNT 5. S/p 13 days Ileostomy Pt. NG tube removed

Diet order: PO diet- Regular, low residue over 24/48 hrs, and PN at same level Output= 1150 ml; 970 ml (1 day prior) RD recommendations: Pt. tolerated 100% CL diet and 1 meal of regular diet w/ no complaints of nausea/vomiting, so PN recommended to d/c with continual advancement to PO at adequate level to meet needs.

Surgery 4. Conversion of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt to ventricular atrial (VA) shunt d/t pt. experiencing hydrocephalus MNT 7. S/p 20 days Ileostomy Diet order: PO- Modified puree diet Meds: Imodium, Gas-X, Metamucil

Pt. parents requested puree diet b/c they believe pt. would tolerate it better d/t smoother texture (pt. with poor dentition) and not completely eating whole foods. Output= 550 ml RD recommendations: Provide Ensure plus TID and supplemental EN if inadequate nutrition remains b/c pt. meeting ~65%-68% of estimated kcal & protein needs from current PO intake over last 5 days.

MNT 8. S/p 24 days Ileostomy Diet order: 75-90 g CHO controlled diet Pt. parents provided with Ostomy nutrition education handout. Parents advised of foods to avoid like simple CHO and to consume small, freq meals, and importance of electrolyte balance and adequate hydration while pt. has ileostomy. Output= 1350 ml

Pt. weight status unable to be assessed d/t shifts in fluid status. MNT 9. S/p 29 days Ileostomy Diet order: Low fiber, Pediasure TID, snacks (bananas, white bread PB&J sandwich, tea-BRAT diet) TID Wt. 147 # =66.5 kg Output= 1400 ml

Meds: Protonix, Metamucil, Lomotil, Imodium, Gas-X RD recd: Pt. will meet at least 70% of est. needs with current diet. D/C metamucil b/c of its effects on high ostomy output. Provide MV supplement and monitor fluids. Ostomy output should estimate < 1 L per 24 hrs. Summary & Conclusions Malnutrition is common in patients with partial or complete SBO.

In complicated SBO cases, the patient may end up with an ostomy if part of the bowel is removed or resected. MNT for SBO has to be individualized based on the location, type, and severity of obstruction (partial, complete). Summary & Conclusions Several factors must be considered before diet advancement is made to

ensure optimal nutrition for the patient. Even when a team is assertive with delivery of nutrition, the role of the RD is still crucial to monitor the adequacy of the intake and appropriateness of the order.
