Validating nestles mini nutritional assessment
The film opened on May 7, 1999, and went on to gross 6 million worldwide.
The box-office success led to two sequels, The Mummy Returns (2001) and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008), as well as an animated series, and a prequel, The Scorpion King.
In those who are already malnourished, treatment may reverse malnutrition and effectively reduce mortality and complication rates.
Early detection, therefore, becomes crucial in the elderly.
The original MNA-SF was a combination of six questions from the full MNA.
A revised MNA-SF included calf circumference (CC) substituted for BMI performed equally well.
The contacted authors submitted original datasets that were merged into a single database.
It was well validated in the hospital, community and long term care settings.
To save time in screening, Rubenstein et al developed a shortened version, the Mini Nutritional Assessment, thus allowing the identification of those who are malnourished with just 6 questions.
