The 7th Vital Sign: Identifying Malnutrition

Malnutrition can be a problem for cancer patients, since chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy might negatively affect a cancer patient’s appetite. This lecture discusses screening tools that are available to detect malnutrition and diagnose its extent.

Lecture Objectives:

  • Identify appropriate screening tools for malnutrition.

  • Determine the etiology, presence, and degree of malnutrition using the Academy/ASPEN adult malnutrition guidelines.

  • Review the nutrition-focused physical examination to determine the loss of subcutaneous fat and/or muscle mass and the presence of possible micronutrient deficiencies and fluid accumulation.
