Summary:

Nearly 70% of adults in the U.S. are overweight, and of those, more than one-third are obese. Shockingly, 20.5% of adolescents ages 12 to 19 are obese, 17.7% of children ages 6 to 11 are obese, and 8.4% of children ages 2 to 5 are obese.Weight loss surgery is not necessarily considered experimental or cosmetic; the National Institutes of Health suggests consideration of surgical weight-loss procedures for clinically severe obese people (BMI > 40 kg/m2) and those with a BMI greater than 35 kg/m2 who have certain medical conditions. This module will provide an overview of the bariatric surgical options and of the care of patients who have had bariatric surgery.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists with an overview of the care of patients who have had bariatric surgery. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate between surgical options available for severely obese individuals
  • Identify psychosocial and quality-of-life issues impacting patients before and after bariatric surgery
  • List metabolic and physiological considerations nurses must be aware of when caring for patients after bariatric surgery
