Nutripad App Description
This handy little app is a practical one-stop shop for the acute care dietitian. No longer do you need to look up several different calculators/equations, this app does it for you.

This tool removes the brunt of number crunching to allow the Dietitian to focus on their assessment and recommendations. Best value on the market!
