    Mobility in the hospital: faster recovery, lower costs [infographic]

    (BPT) - Research shows that movement by patients in the hospital – in bed and progressively sitting, standing and walking – has a major impact on recovery. Early movement for critically ill patients means a shorter stay in the intensive care unit and in the hospital overall. Early mobilization also results in a greater likelihood that patients are discharged to their homes rather than to another care facility. If you have a loved one in the hospital, ask your nurse and doctor about making movement part of their care. Programs like Hill-Rom’s Progressive Mobility can provide hospitals the practical tools they need to get patients moving.

    What parents and athletes need to know about carbohydrates in the form of sugar

    (BPT) - An athlete’s overall nutrition needs vary depending on several factors, including the type of sport and duration of time in motion. Specifically during activity, an athlete needs fuel to perform, and carbohydrates, including sugars, have been found to be functional for athletes who are engaged in activity for at least an hour who have a performance goal. “The increased activity level of an athlete in the moment of training or competition calls for additional fuel, in essence, a readily available source of energy,” says Scott Sehnert, Auburn University sport dietitian and education chair of the Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association. “As registered dietitians, it’s our job to ensure athletes understand the importance of fueling their bodies to help them perform at their best, and science supports appropriate consumption of carbohydrates, including those in the form of sugar, to help improve intermittent exercise capacity for athletes training or competing for more than 60 minutes.”
