Description

What is Oral Impact?

Oral IMPACT® is a powdered enteral nutritional supplement with omega-3 fatty acids, arginine, RNA and soluble fibre. Oral IMPACT® is a nutritionally complete Food for Special Medical Purposes and for use under medical supervision.

What makes Oral Impact so special?

In clinical trials, patients who received Oral IMPACT® orally for at least 5 days prior to surgery developed significantly fewer post-operative infections than those patients who did not. These patients also spent significantly less time in the hospital than those who did not receive IMPACT® prior to surgery.

It is the only preoperative nutritional intervention that has been proven in clinical trials to significantly reduce the rate of post-operative infections.

What is Oral Impact indicated for?

The oral use of IMPACT® is recommended:

Before surgery for all patients undergoing major-elective GI cancer surgery, head and neck cancer surgery, or cardiovascular surgery
Post-operatively or post-injury for select patients at risk for infection who are able to consume an oral diet
For patients with severe pressure ulcers or other chronic wounds
