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.

This systemic review and meta-analysis indicates that IC-guided energy delivery significantly reduces short-term mortality in critically ill patients.

This finding encourages the use of IC-guided energy delivery during critical nutrition support.

But more high-quality studies are still needed to confirm these findings.
