Abstract

There are 5 malnutrition levels of the Subjective Global Nutrition Assessment (SGNA) Re-Scoring Method based on its total score; normal (score 0-7), mild (score 8-14), moderate (score 15-21), moderate-severe (score22-28) and severe malnutrition (score 29-36). Currently, this SGNA method has been applied to determine malnutrition prevalence in various types of pediatric patients at particular hospital

There are 5 malnutrition levels of the Subjective Global Nutrition Assessment (SGNA) Re-Scoring Method based on its total score; normal (score 0-7), mild (score 8-14), moderate (score 15-21), moderate-severe (score22-28) and severe malnutrition (score 29-36). Currently, this SGNA method has been applied to determine malnutrition prevalence in various types of pediatric patients at particular hospital. In noncritically ill and chronic patients’ prevalence are between 63-70%. Therefore, aim of study was to identify malnutrition prevalence in critical illness patients using the novel scoring method. Conducting a crosssectional study in PICU of 6-month time of frame from July to December 2018, there were 282 subjects satisfied the inclusion criteria. Subjects were two-third (66.7%) boys and a third (33.3%) girls with composition of infant, schooler and preschooler age groups shared similar percentage (30.5%, 27.6%, 20.6%) while toddler and teenager the remain (14.2%, 7.7%). Medical diagnosis was twice as surgical for PICU admission reasons (66.7%, 33.3%) with 58.9% of subjects had LOS for less than 3 days. Subjects nutritional status were at undernourished (41%) while malnutrition prevalence was identified in 96.5% of total subjects; 16.7% mild, 38% moderate, 34.4% moderate-severe and 7.4% severe. Malnutrition is prevalent in pediatric critically ill patients which was significantly high compared with non-critically ill and chronic patients. This challenges pediatric RDs in Indonesia providing nutrition care and therapy in intensive care unit to advance their patients’ health status respectively.
