Vital 1.5kcal is suitable for people with disease-related malnutrition and malabsorption or for those who experience symptoms of poor feed tolerance. Vital 1.5kcal is peptide-based* and available both as a 200 ml oral nutritional supplement and as a 1000 ml Ready to Hang tube feed, both of which attach directly to Abbott giving sets. *Peptides are partially broken down proteins, which makes them easier to digest and absorb in the gut than whole proteins.
In patients receiving some medications there may be a risk of drug-nutrient interactions (e.g. warfarin and vitamin K). Careful prescribing and monitoring practices will serve to reduce the risk (please refer to a pharmacist). Unless recommended by a qualified healthcare professional, not intended for use in children. Patients should not make any additions to the feed without consulting their pharmacist or dietitian. Many nutritional products contain sucrose and other sugars. It is important for patients who are taking supplements as sip feeds to observe good oral hygiene.
For enteral use only. Not for use in galactosaemia. Suitable for people with diabetes provided that routine glucose checks are performed.
Store unopened at room temperature and avoid prolonged exposure of the RTH container to light.
