Nutrition Support

Nutrition support is the provision of nutrients via a tube placed into the stomach or small intestine, or intravenously for patients who are unable to eat adequately when provided a normal diet. These two types of nutrition support are called enteral nutrition and parenteral nutrition.

Enteral and parenteral nutrition are usually administered to patients for short periods of time in the hospital, but are occasionally needed for extended periods of time for patients at home or in long-term care facilities.

At Cleveland Clinic, nutrition support is provided by highly specialized teams of clinicians to both inpatients and outpatients. 

Cleveland Clinic's Nutrition Support Team (NST) was established in 1975 by Dr. Ezra Steiger. Dr. Steiger trained at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia with Drs. Harry Vars, Jonathan Rhodes, and Stanley Dudrick who were credited as one of the leading groups involved with the development of parenteral nutrition. 

The original NST at Cleveland Clinic included a general surgeon, nurse, pharmacist, and dietitian, but eventually grew into one of the largest and longest-tenured multidisciplinary teams in the world.  An early milestone for the NST occurred in 1976 when it discharged its first patient home with parenteral nutrition.  This led to the development of the Cleveland Clinic Home Nutrition Support Service (HNSS) which is currently one of the largest, single-institution providers of home parenteral nutrition and intravenous fluids in the U.S.  

Another milestone for NST occurred in 2008 with the addition of Dr. Donald Kirby as Director, Center for Human Nutrition. Dr. Kirby came from the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center where his many areas of specialty included enteral access, malabsorption, and nutrition support.  

The NST is recognized as a national and international leader in the field of nutrition support and its members have conducted multiple research studies, authored numerous publications in scientific journals, presented countless lectures, and held many leadership positions in local and national professional organizations.

Features:

  • Comprehensive Nutrition Assessment
  • Estimating Nutritional Requirements
  • Enteral Nutrition and Access Issues
  • Calculating Parenteral Nutrition Prescriptions
  • Management of Metabolic Complications Associated with Parenteral Nutrition
  • Management of Nutrition Support in the Home Setting
  • A New Section on intestinal rehabilitation and small bowel transplantation
  • An Expanded Section on Special Disease Considerations in Nutrition Support

PLUS – included free with every order – a Pocket Card Guide for estimating nutritional requirements and calculating parenteral nutrition prescriptions.

In 1976, Cleveland Clinic created the Home Nutrition Support Service (HNSS), one of the first multidisciplinary programs of its kind in the United States, dedicated to care for patients at home with intestinal failure. High-tech catheters, pumps, and nutritionally complete intravenous fluids were used to safely “feed” these patients outside of a hospital setting. Specialists in these procedures taught patients how to monitor the overnight infusions, prepare the solutions, and care for their catheters while having access to the team professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Because of the new demand, a Cleveland Clinic home infusion company was established in the 1980’s to provide supplies and services in a more integrated fashion for patients living in Ohio and the surrounding region.

The HNSS has cared for people throughout the United States, as well as from other countries. Since its inception, over 1600 patients have been discharged on home parenteral nutrition (HPN) for reasons most often due to obstructive tumors, Crohn’s disease-related short bowel syndrome, adhesive obstructions, fistulas, and high output ostomies. Now the program has grown to require physicians, dietitians, nurses, a pharmacist, and clerical support to safely provide this complex therapy. HPN may only be required for short periods of time until the medical conditions allow for return to eating and drinking or tube feeding. HPN might also be required for years while still leading healthy, happy, and productive lives. Currently, the HNSS cares for several patients who have required HPN therapy for more than 20 years, and will continue to do so for the rest of their lives.

Our Services

HNSS advocates 24-hour clinician support (available by pager) and infection prevention, not only through optimal catheter-care, but also through the use of ethanol lock technology.

A comprehensive approach is applied to evaluate and care for patients in need of HPN including:

  • Physicians to oversee patient care, education, training, and research related to HPN therapy.
  • Nutrition Support dietitians perform nutrition assessments, establish individual nutrient needs, assist with determining home-going formulas and help ensure patient wellness and safety.
  • The Nutrition Support pharmacist reviews and optimizes parenteral formulas, monitors drug therapy dosing and drug-nutrient interactions, and assists with ensuring proper compounding and compatibility of HPN solutions.
  • Nutrition Support nurses provide evaluation and one-on-one training and education of infusion techniques, catheter care, pump operations, and home self-monitoring.
  • Case Managers identify insurance benefits and establish homecare pharmacy and nursing services.
  • Social Work and Psychiatric Services identify and help with social, emotional, and adjustment concerns.

After a home-going nutrition support formula is established and technical training is complete, patients are discharged from Cleveland Clinic with a visiting nurse who will continue to teach procedures in the home as needed. The HNSS clinicians work closely with home health care services and pharmacies throughout the country, including Cleveland Clinic Home Care. Regular laboratory work, intake and output records, and follow-up appointments with a Nutrition Support Team physician are necessary program components to avoid complications and to optimize outcomes. Dedicated HNSS clinicians attentively coordinate the care of all patients and are available to assist with immediate concerns.

More Information

Enteral access nurses are specially trained to place nasally-inserted small bowel feeding tubes, with the aid of an electromagnetic device. These tubes generally benefit patients who have functioning gastrointestinal (GI) tracts, but are unable to take adequate oral nutrition.

The electromagnetic device enables the nurse to visualize the feeding tube as it travels through the GI tract. This technique can be performed quickly at the bedside without additional sedation, personnel assistance, or cost of repeated radiographs to verify tube placement. This facilitates early enteral nutrition, which promotes healing and decreases hospital length of stay. Enteral access nurses are also specially trained in use of nasal bridles to prevent easy dislodgement of the tubes.

Our enteral access nurses perform more than 180 feeding tube placements monthly and have placed more than 5,000 tubes since the program was established. They are also actively involved in training Nutrition and GI Fellows on placing small bowel feeding tubes and the technique for nasal bridling.
