Nutrition management is one of the cornerstones of care in the management of hospitalized patients, especially, for those who are critically ill. Significant numbers of hospitalized patients have alteration in appetite and the function of the gastrointestinal tract. Calculating the caloric goal, prescribed proteins to be delivered in a finite amount of water at a certain rate is the need of the hour and it becomes a daunting task to complete daily. With the help of technology such tasks can be completed easily and accurately. This suggestion based software called as “iNutriMon” helps to screen out the patients which are at risk of malnutrition, formulate a plan, monitor and manage enteral nutrition of patients by calculating calories, proteins and water intake as per the patient requirement.
