Exploring the role of nutrition in critical care

Atlantic City

Learn more about the research Walter Brown, BS, RVTg, VTS (ECC), is investigating in this area of veterinary medicine

Veterinary technician content is sponsored by Elanco for the month of October.

When a patient is hospitalized, malnutrition can pose a more serious threat to their overall health and recovery. In an interview with dvm360 at the Fetch Coastal conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Walter Brown, BS, RVTg, VTS (ECC), explained the new research his team is exploring for nutrition's role in critical care.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Walter Brown, BS, RVTg, VTS (ECC): I am Walter Brown. I am a registered veterinary technologist specializing in emergency and critical care. I am currently the veterinary technology program liaison for United Veterinary Care. I got my start in veterinary medicine way back when and still loving doing veterinary technician things.

Critical care nutrition is actually one of the newer things that we are working on as a group learning more about it. Unfortunately, we don't know a whole lot about critical care nutrition—again it is something that we are exploring more, we're taking a lot of data that we found on the human side of things and comparing it to the things that we see in our animals.
