Prediction of Energy Expenditure in Mechanically Ventilated Patients Using the Equation of Swinamer et al

Purpose:

To estimate the daily energy expenditure of a mechanically ventilated patient in the intensive care unit using the equation of Swinamer et al.

Specialty:

Nutrition
Critical Care

Objective:

other testing

ICD-10:

E43, E44

Description:

Swinamer et al developed an equation for predicting daily energy expenditure in critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients. This group of patients tends to have actual energy expenditures seriously underestimated by some of the routine energy expenditure equations such as that of Harris and Benedict. This study was done University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
