Nutritional support in the recovery phase of critically ill children.

Summary of "Nutritional support in the recovery phase of critically ill children."

The metabolic stress response of a critically ill child evolves over time and thus it seems reasonable that nutritional requirements change during their course of illness as well. This review proposes strategies and considerations for nutritional support during the recovery phase to gain optimal (catch-up) growth with preservation of lean body mass.
