Post - Hospital Syndrome: Profile of Functional Status by Malnutrition

2017-04-25 08:08:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Malnutrition is common problem in hospitalized geriatrics at discharge. Malnutrition is a high risk for functional limitations, impaired muscle strength and reduced quality of life.

Description

The majority of geriatric hospitalized patients are at high risk for malnutrition at discharge, which has negative impact on post-hospital outcomes. In a cross-sectional analysis in malnourished, geriatric patients we will evaluate frailty-status and functional status using objective and subjective methods at hospital discharge. Moreover, we will investigate the association between nutritional Status and frailty, sarcopenia, quality of life and fatigue.

Acute form of MALNUTRITION which usually affects children, characterized by a very low weight for height (below -3z scores of the median World Health Organization standards), visible severe wasting, or occurrence of nutritional EDEMA.

Do not confuse with starvation, a condition in which the body is not getting enough food, usually for extended periods of time.
