Nutritional assessment

1Nutritional assessment includes all of the following except
History
Physical
Laboratory tests
Triceps skinfold circumference

2Anthropometric measurements are useful in assessing
Short term changes
Long term changes
Immune function
Basal energy expenditure

3Which serum protein is NOT used to assess nutritional status?
Serum transferrin
Hemoglobin
Prealbumin
Albumin

4Nitrogen balance is defined as:
Nitrogen intake - (Urinary nitrogen + Change in BUN)
(Urinary nitrogen / 6.25) - (Protein intake)
(Protein intake / 6.25) - (Urinary nitrogen + Change in BUN)
Nitrogen intake - (Urinary nitrogen + 4)

5The most responsive nutritional indicator is
Nitrogen balance
Weight
Prealbumin
Total Lymphocyte Count

6Calorie requirements may be calculated by
Harris-Benedict equation only
Simplified method of 25 kcal/kg
Relative degree of stress added to basal requirements
Nitrogen balance studies

7Fluid requirements
Decrease with fever, surgical drains, hemorrhage
Are approximately 1 to 2 ml/kcal
Increase with cardiac, pulmonary, or renal disease
Are approximately 1 to 2 ml/kg

8Protein requirements are increased in
Renal disease
Respiratory insufficiency
Stress
Hepatic encephalopathy
