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.
Our patients have had successful outcomes when implementing ArgiMent AT to address challenging wounds. I had recommended AT to an inpatient who had been treated with other nutritionals for months without success. The ArgiMent AT made a significant improvement in his wound status and he continues to improve with each visit to his wound clinic. Ironically, this patient’s sister, who is his caretaker, began using AT to address her own skin breakdown issues with great success.
I use Argiment AT with my patients in the burn unit. I think it is a great product that provides a good source of protein and nutrition that is important for immune support and wound healing.
We have been trying to heal a persistent wound on a resident for over a year. Since starting Argiment AT, she is almost completely healed. Nothing else has worked, she would refuse other supplements after a few days. We are so happy with her progress.
I had residents with long-standing, non-healing wounds and multiple residents with C. diff colitis at the time. Once we got ArgiMent AT on board for our non-healing pressure ulcers, vascular ulcers, and surgical wounds, the results were immediate. Within one week, 100% of wounds improved and stabilized. By the second week, there was granulation and wounds were clean. The MD and Wound Nurse were surprised by the drastic improvement and inquired about possible reasons for improvement. Once they heard, they were sold on the product. The bonus is that the residents love the taste of this product compared to the protein supplements previously used.
Since our facility started using ArgiMent AT we have seen chronic non-healing ulcers heal. It also helps keep up the protein levels on our wound vac patients. Patients do not mind the flavor of it, which helps their compliance in taking it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for great outcomes in wound healing.
