Subjective Global Assessment DVD
“Subjective Global Assessment is a simple bedside method of assessing the risk of malnutrition and identifying those who would benefit from nutritional support. Its validity for this purpose has been demonstrated in a variety of conditions including surgical patients, those with cancer, on renal dialysis and in the ICU.” Dr. Khursheed Jeejeebhoy

The Subjective Global Assessment DVD is divided into two sections. Section 1 describes the SGA nutritional assessment technique. It explains how the medical history component and the physical assessment findings interrelate to generate a nutritional status classification. After explaining the basic principles, the DVD follows a trained clinician conducting the SGA assessment technique on four different patients:
- One severely malnourished patient – Subjective Global Assessment Classification C
- Two patients who are mildly malnourished or suspected of malnutrition– Subjective Global Assessment Classification B
- One nourished patient – Subjective Global Assessment Classification A
Section 2 of this DVD presents 3 different patients for the viewer to test their ability to classify patients using the SGA nutritional assessment technique.
The Subjective Global Assessment DVD is available in standard DVD format for use in computers, portable players or home systems.
