Dosing

The daily dose of ProSource ZAC is determined based on the resident’s intake and individual needs as assessed by the dietitian or qualified healthcare provider. However, in general, two to four servings (30 mLs) per day is suggested. The amount of ProSource ZAC dispensed per serving can also be adjusted to meet individual needs, i.e. instead of 30 mL three times a day, 45 mL twice day could be given.

For pressure injuries or surgical wounds with moderate to heavy drainage a minimum of 3 to 4 servings (30 mL each) is suggested to help replace protein lost in the wound drainage.

For renal disease: Uremic malnutrition as seen in renal disease is associated with loss of appetite and nutrient malabsorption, with those on dialysis also experiencing protein loss during treatment. A minimum of 30 mL twice a day is suggested to enhance protein absorption with inflammation and to replace protein loses for those residents receiving dialysis (HD or PD).

For clear liquid diets a minimum of 3 servings (30 mL each) a day is suggested.

Oral Dosing: ProSource Protein ZAC as a med pass directly from the bottle or add it to all types of beverages, soups, hot and cold foods, purees. It is ideal for both open and closed tube feeding systems and virtually eliminates clogged feeding tubes. The products save nursing time, storage space, waste, and kitchen labor. Unlike powdered protein supplements, it mixes easily into all liquids and moist foods.

Tube Feeding: Flush feeding tube with water. Infuse 30 mL of ProSource via syringe down feeding tube. Flush with an additional 30 mL of water.
Appropriate for NG-tube, G-tube and J-tube.

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.
