A new study on the American Journal of Critical Care demonstrates the limited reliability of the Harris Benedict Equation as a substitute to indirect calorimetry in critically ill patients undergoing mechanical ventilation.
A new study on the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition has been published showing the importance of indirect calorimetry measurements to accurately
indicate the true caloric requirements of patients suffering from severe brain
damage and requiring mechanical ventilation.
A study by the Swedish Karolinska Instituet has been published on Clinical Nutrition Journal showing excellent results for Quark RMR in measuring indirect calorimetry in mechanically ventilated patients.
