Mumbai, May 2 2020: Healthcare learning platform, DocMode in collaboration with renowned doctor Dr. Sanjith Saseedharan, has unveiled iNutrimon, a patented web-based application for doctors and dieticians to calculate nutrition among critical care patients including those battling the novel coronavirus.
At a time when hospitals are facing shortage of PPE kits and are restricting HCPs entry to ICUs and wards insisting that they instead work from home, iNutrimon would come in handy in providing safe and evidence-based nutrition to patients helping in their speedy recovery. Healthcare professionals can make use of iNutrimon even while working from home or away from hospital wards.
The app conforms to GLM criteria and helps doctors, dieticians and other healthcare professionals in assessing malnutrition status among Covid-19 patients.
Says Dr. Sanjith Saseedharan, Head ICU Department, S.L.Raheja Hospital, a Fortis Associate: “This suggests the amount of calories, proteins to be provided for Enteral as well as TPN. All these help in nutrition intervention, and later HCPs would also be able to use the derived data for research on the role nutrition plays in treating Covid-19 patients,” said
iNutrimon adheres to the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) and European Society for Clinical Nutrition & Metabolism (ESPEN) guidelines in calculating nutrition requirement in critically ill patients including those suffering from Covid-19.
