About 30% of all patients in hospital are undernourished. A large part of these patients are undernourished when admitted to hospital and in the majority of these, undernutrition develops further while in hospital (1).
Although malnutrition is common in chronically ill patients, this issue is often neglected. A simple screening of risk groups and a systematic nutrition therapy of these patients can prevent malnutrition. Therefore, the determination of the nutritional status should be part of each physical examination in order to identify risk patients, to evaluate their risk and to define an individual nutrition therapy. The App NuTRIscreen includes different screening tools recommended by the ESPEN (European Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition) guidelines (2).

NuTRIscreen supports an easy way to screen the nutritional status of the patient.
The ESPEN recommend different screening tools for hospital patients, e.g. NRS-2002 (Nutrition Risk Score). The Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) (3) is a simple and reproducible method that can be performed at the patient’s bedside by physicians or other medical staff in order to assess the patient’s nutritional status. This method is applicable for both inpatients and out-patients. Energy Expenditure Estimation (EE) – The human body needs energy to maintain body functions and for physical activity. These requirements can be measured via indirect calorimetry or estimated by the use of formulas like the Harris-Bendict formula.
