Water and Electrolytes in Enteral Nutrition. Ross Medical Nutrition Systems, Ross Laboratories, Columbus, Ohio 43216, September 1982, 34 pages.
If anticipated use of nutritional supplements is expected, then this product information pamphlet might be useful. Water and Electrolytes in Enteral Nutrition is dogmatic in presenting a logical complexity of physiological symbiotics.
As the text burgeons through detail, it begins with total body water as a percentage of body weight, and then basic water requirements. Once water intake has commenced, water output factors are discussed.
Conveniently, a table is provided which displays Dietary Renal Solute Load of Ross Laboratories nutritional products. The next nine pages discuss electrolytes and conclude with a table of potassium content of Ross Laboratories nutritional products.
