Background: This study aimed to describe real-world nutrition management patterns among inpatients hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia, using a medical claims database in Japan. Methods: Patients aged ≥65 years hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia treatment were identified in a medical claims database between January 2013 and December 2018, to evaluate nutrition management initiation and adjustment timing, factors associated with >7-days nil by os (NPO) status, prescribed nutrition doses, and types of parenteral nutrition solutions. Patients were excluded who received oral intake or enteral nutrition on the day of admission (Day 1).
