Current literature shows that meeting the individual protein and calorie needs of patients is critical in improving outcomes. However, most enteral formulas and oral nutrition supplements are designed to meet “average needs” or a one size fits all approach.
Our customers have let us know that they have more than one type of patient. Medtrition offers the widest variety of protein supplements to help clinicians meet the individual protein needs of all their patients, not just those in the middle.
