Respiratory System
 Nutritional status and pulmonary function are
interdependent
 Macronutrients fueled using oxygen and carbon dioxide
 Malnutrition can evolve from pulmonary disorders
 And can contribute to declining pulmonary status
Nutrition and Pulmonary Health

Protein-energy malnutrition

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients

Protein for calories, protein for rebuilding tissue: concerns the strength and endurance
Antioxidants and lung function

Vitamin C

Vitamin E

Beta Carotene

Selenium
Cigarette smokers

Increased intake of vitamin C- DRI + 35 mg per day

Usually have extremely low intake of fiber and antioxidants
Early satiety, anorexia, weight loss, cough, dyspnea during eating

Weight history

Biochemical markers to see where this client is in there stage

Albumin, pre albumin (shorter term, over days)
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD)
 Growth failure d/t decreased nutrient intake, increased
requirements, hypoxemia, delayed skeletal mineralization
and osteopenia
 Lungs not fully developed-compromised breathing b/c of
immaturity of the lungs
 Growth failure due to increased nutrient intake
 A lot of these babies have refluz, their spincheters arent
fully developed and they will reflux during feeding
 Increase it up to calroies per ounce – add calroies to
mothers milk
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD)
 Treatment/Nutrition Therapy
 Energy and macronutrient needs:
 15-20% higher b/c of increased oxygen needs
 They have an increased resting metabollic weight
 120-130 kcal/kg/day or higher
 Protein 3-4 g/kg/day
 Vitamins and minerals
 Vitamin A 1500-2800 Ius
 Mothers milk is normally supplemented with this amount in
the hospital setting
 Closely monitor electrolyte balance- anywhere from 100-200 cc
per kilo?
 Sufficient minerals for bone growth
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD)
 Treatment/Nutrition Therapy


Mechanical ventilation
Nutrition support
May need fluid and sodium restriction
Specialty infant formulas
 High calcium high phosphorus
 Want immune properties that are high in mothers milk
 Breast milk preferred
 Best cased scenario is a mother pumping milk and then we are
supplementing it with excess nutrients
 Education and support to caregivers
 Infant born prematurely
 Steroids may be used

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
 COPD – progressive disease which limits airflow through
inflammation of bronchial tubes (bronchitis)
 Damage could be 2 fold
 Obstruction of air to the bronchial tubes
 Or destruction of the alveoli- or a combination of both:
primary concern is lifestyle
 Conerns
 Low energy intake: do to energy itself
 Decreased appetitie– may be due to depression
 Altered taste perception– b/c of chronic mouth breathing
 Might have increased inflmmation of that indiciudal
 Primary risk factor – smoking
COPD
 Nutrition Therapy
 Low dietary intake
 Altered taste perceptions and appetite
 Elevated REE

Maintain optimal energy balance
Maintain body weight
Anywhere from 125-156% of their energy needs above
BEE (basal energy expenditure) add 25-35% to
1.5 X the harris Benedict equation
Protein about 20% hgih 1.7-1.2 g per kilo
 Overfeeding concern with ventilation
 Glucose >5 mg/kg/min increases CO2 production
 Commercial formulas - low CHO (30%) and higher lipid (50%)
COPD
 Nutrition Therapy - Interventions
 Supplement antioxidants
 Monitor serum phosphate
 Monitor status of calcium and vit. D
 Ca 1200-1500
 Vit D 400 IU of vitamin D
 Identify specific nutrition problems
 Manage weight
Cystic Fibrosis
 Nutrition
 Poor digestion, absorption, malnutrition d/t pancreatic
insufficiency
 Abnormal growth
 Poor growth is one of the main concerns
 Energy needs are sufficiently increasced
 Risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis
 Malapsorption of calcium, phosphorus, vit d , K
 Use steroids to decrease inflammation
 Impaired bone growth and brittle bones
 Vitamin d and vitamin K
Cystic Fibrosis
 Nutrition Assessment
 Diagnosed from birth-12 months of age
(usually have stunted growth)
 National CF Foundation consensus guidelines
- nutrition guidelines
 Special attention to poor growth:
 During th efirst 12 months after diagnosis you
want to focus on growth and status
 Use growth charts – CDC
Cystic Fibrosis
 Pancreatic enzyme therapy
 Given with food and beverages
 Individualized
 Adequate kcal for normal growth based on weight gain
patterns
 Higher fat intake (35-45% kcal)
 MCT-medium chain triglycerides
 Add liquid form to babies formula to boost up the babies
calroies
 Normally baby formula is 20 kcal per oz
 6-12 carbons long--- shorter than regular triglycerides
 Water soluble so require less bile– good for individuals for fat
malabsorbing
 Glucose intolerance common
 Usually they will convert to a diabetic in their teen years
Cystic Fibrosis
 Monitor vitamin & mineral status
 Monitor sodium levels
 Assess iron and zinc status
 Recommend breast feeding
 Immune fighting properties/of higher calorie
 Developmentally appropriate
recommendations
 Formulas or nutritional supplements
Respiratory Failure
 Nutrition
 Meet nutrition needs
 Trying to reserve lean body mass, particularly we are looking at
respiratory muscle
 Energy needs vary widely; may be hypermetabolic
 Avoid overfeeding
 Can cause compromised respiratory function
 Indirect calorimetry preferred method
 Specifically looking at calorie needs
 25 kcal per kilo to try to calculate needs or 130% of REE
 Preserve and restore LBM; respiratory muscle mass
