ArgiMent AT is a medical food specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of pressure injury and wounds that require enhanced levels of protein, vitamins and minerals.
• Pressure injury
• Diabetic foot ulcers
• Venous ulcers
• Burns and injuries
• Non-healing surgical wounds
• Increased protein needs
• Pre- and post-surgical recovery
ArgiMent AT yields a high-protein nitrogen intervention to meet the increased nitrogen needs associated with chronic, non-healing wounds. According to the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), the protein intake required for healing such wounds is 1.2 to 1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight. Larger draining wounds may require higher levels, up to 2.0 grams of protein per kg of body weight, to offset protein losses from wound exudates.
One packet of ArgiMent AT contains 5.17 g of nitrogen, or the nitrogen equivalent of 31.7 g of intact protein.
