Dietary Manager Training: Digestion and Absorption of Carbohydrates (Screencast)
Learners follow the path of a carbohydrate food from consumption through digestion to absorption into the bloodstream. In a matching exercise, students identify the main type of carbohydrate found in four different foods.
Learners read about the role of water, the basic physiology of water balance, and the effects of dehydration particularly on elderly clients. Tips for maintaining proper hydration are presented. In an interactive exercise, students calculate how much fluid a client needs based on his/her age, health, and weight.
