Should early enteral nutrition be used in the trauma intensive care unit?
AbstractCritical illness, sepsis, surgery, multi-organ failure and haemodynamic instability are conditions that are associated with feeding inadequacies and nutritional challenges. Conversely, meeting nutritional requirements and providing optimal nutrition are associated with an improved outcome. Since these facts have been reported repeatedly, why then are we still faced with study results on suboptimal feeding?
