The goal of this study is to evaluate whether a standard enteral nutrition protocol can improve the efficiency in achieving nutritional goals and improve prognosis in critically ill patients.
As we all know, the nutrition status in critically ill patients is associated with the prognosis of these patients. And it has been confirmed that early enteral nutrition results in better outcome. However,some epidemiological investigation reported that in most intensive care unit, the phenomenon of delayed feeding or under feeding are not uncommon. In 2007, a study reported that the percentage of early enteral nutrition within 48h is 64%, based on mechanical ventilated patients in 208 intensive care unit nationally. Other study indicated that the calorie supported by the enteral nutrition only constitute 50% of the target calorie. Several studies have showed that the application of a standard enteral nutrition protocol could result in an improvement in the delivery of enteral feedings to patients. However, there is no such study in China.The goal of this study is to evaluate whether a standard enteral nutrition protocol can improve the efficiency in achieving nutritional goals and improve prognosis in critically ill patients.

The aim of this study is to compare two nutritional regimes in critically ill patients. Patients will be randomized to standard care (25 kcal per kg) or to hypocaloric nutrition (15 kcal p...
To determine whether high-protein (24% of total calorie from protein) enteral nutrition of immune modulating nutrients (eg, ω-3 fatty acids and antioxidants) enriched with β-glucan stimu...
The objective of this study is to compare the difference in daily protein intake of critically ill patients in two standardized enteral nutrition formulas (20% versus 33% percent) with the...
The purpose of the study is to determine the tolerance on lipid metabolism and the safety of short-term parenteral nutrition as compared to enteral nutrition in critically ill patients wit...
In critically ill patients, a strategy aimed at an early delivery of full caloric support, with a combination of Enteral Nutrition (EN) and Parenteral Nutrition (PN) (in conditions prevent...
Nutrition therapy is essential to the care of critically ill patients. Information that is used to calculate the differences between patients' nutrition prescription and actual provision may be flawed...
- Overfeeding of critically ill patients is associated with a higher incidence of infections and an increased length of ventilation. However, trophic nutrition or permissive underfeeding appears to ha...
The review focuses on the use of parenteral nutrition and enteral nutrition in critically ill patients to optimize the nutrition care throughout the ICU stay. The key message is: you have the choice!
Anorexia is a preserved evolutionally response that may be beneficial during acute illness. Yet current clinical practice guidelines recommend early and targeted enteral nutritional support. However, ...
Recent clinical trials have challenged the concept that aggressive full feeding as close to goal requirements as possible is necessary in the first week following admission to the intensive care unit....
Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.
The administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient who cannot maintain adequate nutrition by enteral feeding alone. Nutrients are administered by a route other than the alimentary canal (e.g., intravenously, subcutaneously).
The at-home administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient who cannot maintain adequate nutrition by enteral feeding alone. Nutrients are administered via a route other than the alimentary canal (e.g., intravenously, subcutaneously).
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
The study of NUTRITION PROCESSES, as well as the components of food, their actions, interaction, and balance in relation to health and disease in animals.
