     Nutrition and illness

“In all maladies, those who are well
         nourished do best”
           Hippocrates 400BC
   Nutritional support in the critically Ill

 Depleted lean body mass is associated with a
  poor outcome and organ dysfunction
                                     Giner Nutrition 1996

• Critically ill patients lose 5-10% LBM
• Loss of >35% original mass usually fatal.
                                Gamrin metabolism 1997

• Malnutrition contributes to impaired
  immunity and sepsis.
                Griffiths Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care 2003
Loss of lean body mass is associated
       with a worse outcome
          General Principles: Nutrition in the
          Critically Ill and Surgical Patients
   • Feed early <24hrs at low flow rates
   • Except: obstruction, ileus (food intolerance),
     severe shock (with jejunal feeding), or ischemia.
   • Interruption postop is generally unnecessary
   • PN Particularly in the undernourished or if oral
     intake is inadequate (<60%) for >3 days
   • It may take 5 to 7 days to reach target

Kreymann ESPEN Guidelines on Enteral Nutrition: Intensive care. Clinical Nutrition 2006
Weimann ESPEN Guidelines on Enteral Nutrition 2006
               Protocol Feeds
• Do not await return of bowel sounds, flatus or
  passing of a “gastric balance”
• Feeding cessation occurs in 45% , 70% avoidable
• GRV although imprecise vis a vis aspiration and
  VAP: (200 or 400ml made no difference) is a
  useful guide to protocol directed EN
• We use 200ml and nurse the patient at 30-45°

        Nutritional Requirements: Energy

   •   Acute phase: 20–25 kcal/kg IBW/day
   •   Recovery phase: 25–30 kcal/kg IBW/day
   •   Severe undernutrition: 25–30 kcal/kg IBW /day
   •   Obese ICU: 18 – 20 kcal/kg/day*

* Adjusted body weight = (current BW – IBW) x 0,25 + IBW

Weimann ESPEN Guidelines on Enteral Nutrition: Surgery including Organ Transplantation
Clinical Nutrition (2006) 25, 224–244
         Nutritional Requirements:

•   1.2 -1.5 g/kg IBW/day
•   1.5 -1.7 g/kg during stressed conditions
•   Obese ICU: 2 g/kg
•   NPE:N ratio = 80/100 – 150 : 1
•   Open abdo (estimate 2 g/ l abdominal fluid)
                            Cheatham Crit Care Med. 2007
• Primarily developed for colonic surgery but
  has now included other disciplines
• Decreased LOS and complications in
  thoracic, vascular, orthopedic, urologic,
  esophageal, pancreatic and liver surgery
  but evidence not yet as robust

Evidence for ERAS

            Varadhan Clin Nutr 2010
   ERAS: Pre-operative Fasting

• Several national anaesthesia societies
  recommend more liberal fasting practice:
  clear fluids (water, clear juices, coffee, tea)
  up to 2h preop and 6-h for solids in most
  elective patients

       Gastric Emptying in Volunteers

CCD Clear CHO drink (50g CHO)
ONS Oral Nuritional supplement: (50 g CHO and 15 g glutamine)

   Gastric Residual Volumes(GRV)
• CCD GRV returned to baseline in ≤120min
• Protein drink was 3.4 and 2.4 times baseline at
  120min but returned to baseline at 180min
• Anxiety and obesity have no effect on GRV

         Preoperative fasting
• Safe to administer a CCD up to 2hrs pre-op
  but protein drinks require 3-4h
• 800ml clear CHO beverage (12.6%) pre
  midnight and 400ml 2–3h pre surgery
  reduces thirst, hunger and anxiety and
  significantly reduces insulin resistance

Preoperative Fasting: Insulin Resistance
             24hr post op

                             Ljungqvist Br J Surg
      ERAS: Postop Nutrition
• Encourage eating 4 h post surgery
  – Reduces infection and LOS
  – Improves recovery of gut O2 tension postop
  – Does not impair healing of anastomoses
  – Increases vomiting and without anti-ileus
    therapy, causes bloating
                              Lewis Br Med J 2001

    ERAS: Ileus prophylaxis and
     promotion of GIT motility
• Epidural analgesia, avoid of opiates and
  fluid overload
• Use oral magnesium oxide 1g BD on the
  evening of surgery and until discharge

     Fluid overload and Outcome: Surgery

152 ASA II-III patients elective abdominal surgery
• Liberal: Ringers 10ml/kg bolus then 12ml/kg/h
• Restrictive: 4ml/kg/h intra-op
• Inotropes, blood, additional fluid/ clinical criteria
• Complications lower in restricted group: p=0.046
  – Post op hospital stay: 9(7-24) vs. 8(6-21) days
  – Flatus 4 (3-7) days vs. 3(2-7) days (p<0.001)
  – Faeces 6(4-9) vs.4(3-9) days (p,0.001)

   Antioxidants: Meta-analysis

• No effect on infectious complications: RR 0.90
  (0.65-1.24) p=0.51
• 6 studies utilizing combinations of
  antioxidants no effect on outcome
• 7 studies that included selenium had a trend to
  lower mortality and higher doses (>500µg/d)
  in particular had a trend to lower mortality

• Calculate requirements
• Consider TPN if target not achieved in 72-96 hrs
• Protocol directed / 45° / continuous/ pro-kinetics/

• Consider immuno-nutrients
• Do not stop EN unnecessarily
