Surgical complications are a major driver of unplanned readmissions.1 Appropriate nutritional therapy can reduce risk of surgical complications leading to improved outcomes and decreased LOS.2 Surgical site infections (SSIs) alone cost over $3 billion dollars per year.3
The Critical Care Nutrition Guidelines for enteral nutrition (EN) in postsurgical and trauma patients include:4

  1. Initiation of EN within 24-48 hours of admission to the Surgical ICU following major surgery or trauma, and within 4-6 hours of severe burn injury, as appropriate.
  2. Suggested routine use of an immunonutrition formula in the post-operative Surgical ICU.

This program presented on January 9, 2020 describes the physiological response to trauma and the importance of early enteral immunonutrition (IM) that is well tolerated. Enhance your knowledge with real world evidence showing the application of a volume-based feeding (VBF) protocol to improve adequacy and clinical outcomes in the surgical/trauma ICU patient.
