We invite you to join us for the Upcoming Webinar:
Fluid Issues in the ICU and Acute Care: Insights for the Nutrition Support Professional--by Joe Krenitsky, MS, RD
September 20, 2011

Are you perplexed about fluid management issues in the ICU?   Ever wondered why the physicians were diuresing patients that appeared to be volume-depleted, or giving normal saline to those you thought were fluid overloaded?   How much of the ‘alphabet soup’ of MAP, CVP and ScvO2 that they mention on rounds should I know about? What is Goal directed therapy and does any of that apply to me? The primary goal of this webinar to view the process of critical illness from a larger perspective and review what the nutrition support professional should know about management of fluids in the ICU.


  1. Discuss how physiological processes associated with critical illness affect fluid balance.
  2. Review what goal-directed therapy is and how it affects fluid balance in critically ill patients.
  3. Discuss how fluid balance affects ventilator weaning in the ICU.
  4. Review strategies for appropriate intervention on fluid balance in the ICU
