Energy delivery guided by indirect calorimetry in critically ill patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

The use of indirect calorimetry (IC) is increasing due to its precision in resting energy expenditure (REE) measurement in critically ill patients. Thus, this study aim to evaluate the clinical outcomes of an IC-guided nutrition therapy compared to predictive equations strategy in such a patient population.

Medium-term impact of COVID-19 on pulmonary function, functional capacity and quality of life.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has spread worldwide determining a dramatic impact on the healthcare system. Aim of this study is to evaluate mid-term clinical impact of COVID-19 on respiratory function.

ESPEN guideline on clinical nutrition in hospitalized patients with acute or chronic kidney disease.

Acute kidney disease (AKD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are highly prevalent among hospitalized patients and they have important metabolic and nutritional consequences. Moreover, in case of kidney replacement therapy the possible impact on nutritional profiles, substrate balance, and nutritional treatment processes cannot be neglected.

Energy expenditure and indirect calorimetry in critical illness and convalescence: current evidence and practical considerations.

Energy expenditure and indirect calorimetry in critical illness and convalescence: current evidence and practical considerations.

Energy expenditure appears highly variable among critically ill patients and in individual patients during various phases of illness. As a consequence, critically ill patients are at considerable risk of under- or overfeeding during ICU and post-ICU hospital stay, when rough and static estimates are used. The most recent international guidelines recommend regular indirect calorimetry to measure energy expenditure as a proxy for caloric requirement in ICU patients.
