The Effect of Standardized Enteral Nutrition on Critically Ill Patients

2016-11-30 15:45:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
