2016 ASPEN Guidelines
WHAT'S NEW IN THE 2016 ASPEN GUIDELINES?
Let's explore the changes and the consistencies for the 2009 to 2016 ASPEN Adult Critical Care Guidelines. Several new recommendations will be discussed including:
  1. Early assessment of patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit for nutrition risk.
  2. Initiation of enteral nutrition within 24/48 hours following the onset of critical illness and admission to the ICU.
  3. Steps to reduce risk of aspiration and improve tolerance of enteral feeding.
  4. Elimination of the use of gastric residual volumes as part of routine care for ICU patients.
  5. Initiation of parenteral nutrition early, if enteral nutrition is not feasible.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Summarize recommendations that are unchanged from the 2009 guidelines.


  • Describe the changes made for the 2016 guidelines compared to the 2009 guidelines.
