By identifying malnutrition and dehydration in patients who
have had a stroke, nurses can intervene to prevent significant
complications developing and so improve patient outcomes.
Poor intake of fluid and food may result from difficulties in
swallowing, as well as other physical and functional problems that
occur as a result of a stroke. The aim of this article is to encourage
nurses to identify the frequency and causes of malnutrition and
dehydration, to consider the complications this can cause and to
be aware of optimum feeding strategies for stroke patients
