Here are the supporting materials for Episode 24 'Starving in the Intensive Care Unit'

 

People of all sizes end up in intensive care, with their life hanging in the balance. Without modern medicine they’d be dead already. Despite this cutting edge of science setting, larger patients are often arbitrarily underfed. This episode discusses why this is, what the implications for larger patients are, and what we can do about it.  

 

Learning goals:

  • Understand the various phases of the human body’s response to severe trauma and their impact on bodily resources
  • Recognise the considerations for nourishing larger bodied people in the ICU
  • Appreciate key calculations for estimating energy and nutrition requirements for larger bodies in critical care
