Implementing CF Nutrition®

Implementation Support

CF Nutrition® stands alone in supporting you every step of the way – we don’t just send product and let you figure out the rest. We know it can be challenging to change the status quo.

Early implementation support will help an Enhanced Recovery Protocol flourish long term. We offer customized support for those implementing CF Nutrition® products at the facility-wide or system-wide level.

High Quality Service

Implementation Consulting

Implementation support includes the option to speak with our consulting nurse anesthetist to answer any practical questions about CF Nutrition® implementation. If need be, we can also pull in our consulting physicians to answer your doctor’s questions.

Customized Instructions

When big changes like a new Enhanced Recovery program are made, standing preop instructions often end up contradicting the new protocol. We create custom instructions for both patients and staff with your hospital logo and desired verbiage.

Logistics Solutions

While you always want CF Nutrition® products on hand to give to patients, you don’t necessarily want to store large quantities. We work with you to set up a schedule for shipping product where and when you need it!

Where Do I Start?

No matter what stage of implementation, CF Nutrition® is here to help you get started.

  1. Since 1999 (and reinforced in 2011 & 2017) the ASA® has stated in their preoperative fasting guidelines that patients should be hydrating and nourishing with clear liquids up to 2 hours before surgery, and forgoing the traditional NPO fast.
  2. Over 30 studies have shown that the residual gastric acid caused by NPO starvation can be extremely harmful to patients if aspirated.
  3. Research and field data shows the following patient benefits from hydrating and nourishing patients before anesthesia:
    • Reduced rates of infection
    • Less preop anxiety
    • Reduced PONV
    • Shorter LOS
  1. CF(Preop)® is specifically formulated for surgical patients – no colored dyes, no protein, no fat, no extreme sugar content
  2. CF(Preop)® contains complex carbs and just the right amount of calories, unlike sports drinks
  3. CF(Preop)® contains healing properties such as Zinc and L-citrulline
  4. CF(Preop)® comes in a 12oz, ready-to-drink bottle – no powders, no mixing, no measuring, no mess
