Collaborative Management Strategies for Acute/Urgent Care in Short Bowel Syndrome
Patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS) may present in an acute care setting for many reasons, including diarrhea, dehydration, bowel obstruction, gallstones, and complications related to parenteral nutrition (PN) such as infections. In this Clinical Commentary video with accompanying downloadable infographic, physicians, nurses, NPs, and PAs within the urgent care and emergency department settings will learn about SBS, common complications, and strategies for reducing the risk of future complications, including pharmacologic options for enhancing intestinal adaptation that can lead to meaningful reductions in PN requirements, thereby reducing the incidence of PN-related complications in patients with SBS.
