Nutritional support of the mechanically ventilated patient

Nutritional support of the mechanically ventilated patient

Critical Care Clinics 6(3): 767-784

Mechanically ventilated patients generally depend on artificial means for nutritional supplementation. In this article we review the magnitude, pathophysiology, and clinical significance of proteolysis, and evidence that nutritional repletion is beneficial. Methods for assessing nutritional status and response to nutritional intervention are briefly discussed, as well as basic principles of anabolic and anticatabolic therapy.
