[Comment] Nutrition in the ICU: sometimes route does matter

19:09 EST 8 Nov 2017 | The Lancet

The NUTRIREA-2 trial by Jean Reignier and colleagues1 in The Lancet provides an important piece in the puzzle of intensive-care unit (ICU) nutrition management. This pragmatic multicentre study done at 44 French ICUs randomly assigned patients aged 18 years or older requiring invasive mechanical ventilation and vasopressors (median 0·5 μg/kg per min) to receive either enteral nutrition (n=1202) or parenteral nutrition (n=1208), both targeting normocaloric goals (20–25 kcal/kg per day), within 24 h after intubation or ICU admission.
