Abstract:requirements and 6%(n¼2) met estimated energy and protein requirements. Patients on GICU had a mean cumulative deficit of 3439 kCal, 169 g protein and patients on CICU had a mean cumulative deficit of 2173 kCal, 203 g protein. Feed was stopped for a mean of 48 hours per patient (range 8e101 hours), which equated to 15% of total feed time for GICU patients and 19% of total feed time for CICU patients. The primary cause of interruptions to feeding was airway procedures, followed by surgical procedures. The cause… Show more
