CRITICAL CARE NUTRITION SEMINAR
Nestlé Health Science has the pleasure of invite you for a seminar with the Canadian Professor Dr. Daren Heyland and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Juan Ochoa. They will share their vast experience and knowledge within the field of nutrition treatment for critically ill patients.
Dr. Heyland has through his large-scale multicenter studies investigated the factors that optimize the nutritional treatment and the nutritional challenges the critical ill patients are facing. He will bring the latest evidence and controversies of critical care nutrition into his talks with focus on the impact of protein delivery and physical training on recovery.
Dr. Juan Ochoa was the first to demonstrate that excessive nitric oxide production in humans could explain the hemodynamic instability of sepsis. Dr. Ochoa started doing basic research between his first and second residency training in general Surgery. Meanwhile completing his clinical training, he continued with his research on nitric oxide, and soon after became Professor of Surgery and Critical Care and associate director for trauma services at UPMC. Dr. Ochoa has published over 120 manuscripts and his work has been essential at defining arginine deficiency as a cause of immune dysfunction in several illnesses including surgery, trauma and certain cancers. Since 2010, Dr. Ochoa has been working for Nestlé Health Science and is today chief medical officer for Nestle Health Science. His work at Nestle Health Science has focused on demonstrating the value of specialized nutrition aimed at meeting the distinct nutrition requirements of patients with different illnesses.
