How critical is nutrition in ICUs:

For critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs), nutrition is more than just a matter of maintaining a healthy diet. In fact, it can be a matter of life and death. When patients are unable to eat or digest food, their bodies may break down muscle tissue to provide the energy they need to survive. This can lead to malnutrition, weakness, and a weakened immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off infections and other complications.

For this reason, it is critical that patients in ICUs receive proper nutrition to support their recovery. This may involve a combination of oral, enteral, or parenteral nutrition, depending on the patient's individual needs and medical condition. With proper nutrition, patients in ICUs can build strength, reduce the risk of infection, and improve their chances of a successful recovery. In this eBook, we'll explore the role of nutrition in critical care and provide insights into best practices for supporting the nutritional needs of ICU patients.
