Nutritional challenges in ICU patients

share Share

This symposium explored controversial aspects of the nutritional management of patients in the ICU. There are new concepts and old controversies such as the role of permissive underfeeding and the optimal timing of nutrient delivery. Glucose control is also one such area where there is still no widespread agreement on optimal targets for blood glucose control in ICU. In addition to modulating the provision of protein / energy delivery, speakers looked at the influence of nutrition on blood glucose control and discussed new clinical data suggesting that higher protein – lower carbohydrate enteral nutrition may improve glycaemic control without increasing the risk of hypoglycaemia.
