Abstract. OBJECTIVE: The author reviews the newer nutritional substrates in use or under investigation for enteral and parenteral nutrition. Management of the critically ill patient remains a significant challenge to clinicians, and it is hoped that dietary manipulations, such as those outlined, may augment host barriers and immune function and improve by: Nutrition and Malnutrition in the Critically Ill Patient.

Patients who are well nourished prior to ICU admission, develop nutritional disorders rapidly. Metabolic demands of . In these most seriously ill patients, the homeostasis of so many metabolic systems goes into varying degrees of disarray. Too often, the gastrointestinal tract itself is dysfunctional. The so-called nutritional measurements such as calorie expenditure, protein utilization, and serum micronutrient and protein levels often fail to instruct us. Start studying Leadership.
