Nutritional support is becoming a cornerstone for the therapeutic approach to patients with chronic diseases. Chronic heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are frequently associated with malnutrition. Nutritional support to prevent progressive weight loss should be considered. Oral supplementation and enteral nutrition represent the first choices when cardiopulmonary patients require nutritional support, which explains the lack of clinical trials on the role of parenteral nutrition in chronic heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients.
