The Use of Indirect Calorimetry for Nutritional Management
Date: Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Time: 11:30 - 12:30 ET
Speakers: Maria Ines Pinto-Sanchez, MD and Nicole Janisse, RD
Indirect calorimetry (IC) offers precise measurement of energy expenditure, and has been widely used in critically ill patients to guide caloric intake and help maintain critical lean body mass. Predictive equations do not accurately predict required energy needs compared to IC. This webinar will provide valuable information on the use of indirect calorimetry for critically ill patients and other outpatient populations.
In this session attendees will learn:
1- Fundamentals of indirect calorimetry testing
2- Benefit of using indirect calorimetry for nutritional management in ICU
3- Potential benefit and use of indirect calorimetry in different outpatient settings
