Q: What would be the likely change in nutrition formula if patient goes to only nocturnal feeding?
A) Calorie-dense formula
B) Formula with high water content
C) Using renal formula
D) Double the dose of standard formula
Calorically dense formulas are most practical for use in patients requiring nocturnal and/or bolus feeding. Most calorie dense formulae are concentrated in water content, and carried 2 cal/ml. Also, there is no need to switch to renal formula as they are specifically designed in contents only for renally impaired patients.
