HCU Maxamum Unflavoured 500g Tin 610340

GMS approved

Must be used under medical supervision. For enteral use only. Not suitable for use as a sole source of nutrition. This product should not be used as a sole source of protein but must be given in conjunction with a protein source to supply the methionine, fluid and general nutrition requirements of the patient in quantities as prescribed by a clinician or dietitian. Not intended for infants or young children.
The recommended dosage and timing of intake is dependent on the age, bodyweight and medical condition of the patient, and should be determined by a dietitian or clinician only. Paste the prescribed amount of powder with a small amount of water. Gradually stir in the remaining water until the required volume is achieved. Initially, a 1 to 7 dilution is recommended (i.e.. 100g Maxamum plus 700mls of water) with the concentration increasing to 1 to 5 (i.e.. 100g Maxamum plus 500mls water), with increasing tolerance. These dilutions are guidelines only. HCU Maxamum can be taken as a more concentrated drink or paste, however water or diluted drinks should also be taken to counteract high osmolality. Maxamum may be flavoured with a separate flavouring from the Nutricia range.
