ArgiMent AT

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.

Conditions:
• 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.

I am the Clinical RD for a ltc/rehab facility. We have been using Medtrition products for over 3 years. Our residents have shown significant progress in protein malnutrition and wound healing from using ProSource NoCarb, ArgiMent AT, ProSource ZAC, ProSource TF, Gelatein 20 and Gelatein Plus. The Nursing Staff has been able to achieve excellent outcomes with Stage II, III and IV wounds. They are all more well-accepted by the residents and easier to administer than the previous supplements and modalities. With the fast pace of admissions, discharges, rehab and surgical needs, we have determined that Medtrition has come to answer all our needs for supplementation. Flexibility, dosages, ease of administration, shelf stability, taste acceptance, nutritional content and educational support are typical descriptions I receive from staff regarding Medtrition’s products and their Sales Representative and Support Staff.
