Presented by Thomas Pavlina
This tutorial is 1 of a set of 3 modules that discuss the properties and metabolic impact of different lipid sources; the potential indications and contraindications of EN and PN lipids in pediatrics and adults; and a review of the scientific literature currently available.
Module I: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Oils/Lipids
Description: This module covers the basics of biochemistry of oils and lipids/fats to provide the foundation for an understanding of the characteristics and metabolic properties of lipids.
- Identify the properties and metabolic effects of different types of fatty acids
- Describe the properties and metabolic effects of different oils used in EN and PN
- Discuss potential benefits of combining various oils in lipid emulsions and enteral formulas
