The simplest one-stop shop for clinical RDs.
Designed by the experienced RDs at Stanford Hospital and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center to bring all nutrition support needs into the palm of your hand. Easily saves 10+ minutes per patient -- seriously, an RD's best friend.
Based on daily routines across all types of patients, we jammed EVERYTHING we need into just 3 simple screens. We've thoroughly tested the app in our own daily routines over the past year, and can't imagine not having this app anymore.
We've double-checked calculations many times and automated everything including tube feeding formulas where possible, so you don't have to.
Screen 1: Quick Nutrition Needs --
Quickly determine BMI, IBW, kcal needs (both MSJ and Penn State, for on or off ventilation), and protein needs. Easily account for stress factor and protein multipliers.
Screen 2: Instant Tube Feeds --
Determine total volume, kcal, gm protein, %kcal protein, gm CHO, %kcal CHO, and mL free H2O in literally seconds.
Screen 3: Parental Nutrition (TPN) calculator --
Input rate and duration, and either grams or percentage dextrose/amino acids/lipids to determine total volume, kcal, gm protein, gm CHO, GIR, and gm fat/kg. Works for both 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 methods.
We made this app to fulfill our own biggest painpoints, but after realizing how indispensable it's become to us, we hope it's helpful for others now too.

Ratings and Reviews
Best nutrition/MNT app out there!
This app is seriously a clinical dietitians best friend! Features include MSJ/Penn State calculations, TF, and TPN calculator. I've tried several other apps that claim similar functions, but I love that this app has all 3 in one. Also, I LOVE that you can adjust the TF duration and hourly rate and calculate macronutrients this way. I transition a lot of pts from continuous to cyclic and this saves me SO much time! The TPN function is fantastic too! Honestly, this saves me prob 5-7 mins/pt. I can't say enough good things!
I have used this app for about a month and I am so pleased with the ease and accuracy of the calculators, the built-in formulary and the time it has saved me because it is right at my fingertips. In fact, I am in the process of reviewing this app in for a newsletter article.
In an absolute perfect world, the only additional calculators I would add, it would be to include a IV dextrose and Propofol calculator. No complaints here! Fantastic job!
This app is the most user-friendly for clinical dietitians that I've used. I wish I had found it sooner! It calculates MSJ (or Penn State) and kcal/kg simultaneously, which is helpful when I calculate nutrition requirements in multiple ways to compare the numbers. The EN and TPN calculations also save significant time while charting.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
