Title

Energy expenditure in mechanically ventilated patients: The weight of body weight!

Authors
Graf, Séverine
Published in Clinical Nutrition. 2015
Abstract Optimal nutritional care for intensive care unit (ICU) patients requires precise determination of energy expenditure (EE) to avoid deleterious under- or overfeeding. The reference method, indirect calorimetry (IC), is rarely accessible and inconstantly feasible. Various equations for predicting EE based on body weight (BW) are available. This study aims at determining the best prediction strategy unless IC is available.
