Critical Care

The importance of nutritional support for critically ill patients, e.g. surgical and intensive care patients cannot be overstated. Critical illness is typically associated with a catabolic stress state and increased morbidity and mortality risk. Because many of these patients are unconscious and have multiple-organ dysfunction, including gastro-intestinal dysfunction, optimal nutrition support is a big challenge.

At Nutricia Research, we recognise the importance of optimal nutrition for critically ill patients. We have played an important role in improving patient outcomes by providing state-of-the-art nutritional solutions and the development of nutritional guidelines and recommendations for critically ill patients.
