Abstract [en]


In an intermediate section at a large university hospital are patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) cared for. There are international, national and local guidelines how nutrition therapy should be implemented and how much energy each patient should be given when hospitalized. The purpose of this study was to examine the documentation and actions on nutrition in patients with SAH and to see if guidelines on nutrition were followed. The study was a quantitative, retrospective record review that was analyzed statistically and descriptive. 26 patients were included. The patient’s nutritional treatment and energy intake were analyzed for 4 days. A large proportion of patients in the study did not reach the level of energy intake as recommended. Nutritional assessment was performed in 3 patients. Of the 26 examined patient’s 10 received nasogastric tube within 3 days. Significant differences between patients receiving nasogastric tube and not receiving nasogastric tube were found regarding the energy supply both days 4 and treatment days 1-4. As the majority of patients did not meet their energy needs, adherence to guidelines must increase while local guidelines should be described and documented more clearly. A good nutritional treatment for this population should be achieved by simple guidelines and tailored to each individual.
