Nutrition in Critical Illness

I’m writing a lecture on Nutrition for the ICU patient population. It’s been quite tough to find substantial data because of the many nuances and the vast heterogeneity of the patient population. That being said, this review article came out a few days ago and it provides a guide of sorts to provide our patients with nutrition during their different phases in the ICU. My understanding is that the ASPEN group shall be meeting towards the end of March. I am looking forward to whatever guidance they can provide so I can better care for my patients.

Fortunately this article is free! A hat tip for the authors.

The primary source of compensation I receive for this page and Instagram work is via Amazon Affiliates. All this free education you receive is much out of the kindness of my heart but I also enjoy receiving a check every month from Affiliate Marketing. The best part is that it's of no cost to you. Here's how it works:

Say you click on the following link for Will Owens' awesome ventilator book here: https://amzn.to/2myFxYm. A window will appear with the book on it but if you buy anything else on Amazon, say, complete a purchase with everything in your shopping cart, I will received a 1-5% commission for your purchase at no cost to you.

As an example, for every copy of the Ventilator book people have bought off of my affiliate links, for example, I have earned $0.85. I know it's not big money but it helps motivate me to keep on plugging along doing this heavy lifting in Critical Care. Thank you for supporting my work!
