12 Metabolic Response to Injury  Rapid glycogenolysis  H 2 O + NaCl retention  edema  Glucose intolerance  Gluconeogenesis  Protein synthesis redirected to acute phase proteins + wound healing  Muscle wasting

13 Metabolic Response to Injury  Increased energy expenditure Pain, anxiety, feverPain, anxiety, fever Muscular effort-work of breathing, shiveringMuscular effort-work of breathing, shivering  Physiologic stress response: Catabolic phase increased caloric needs, inadequate intakeincreased caloric needs, inadequate intake gluconeogenesis  wasting of endogenous protein stores, increased urinary nitrogen lossesgluconeogenesis  wasting of endogenous protein stores, increased urinary nitrogen losses

14 Energy Utilization  Hypermetabolic state  increases demands  less efficient use of nutrients for energy  more nutrients used to meet the demands  Negative energy balance is highly correlated to complications in critically ill patients

15  Surgical trauma is accompanied by a negative nitrogen balance  Nitrogen balance is more negative than during pure fasting Effects of Surgical Trauma on Resting Energy Expenditure Long CL, et al. JPEN 1979;3:

16 Substrate Utilization Muscle is metabolized as gluconeogenic substrate to supply the brain, kidney, tumor etc Glutamine

20 Risk factors associated with death, analyzed by a multiple regression model Risk Factor OR 1 Confidence interval Malnutrition Presence of cancer Age ≥ 60y/o Surgical treatment 0.16* * p < OR = odds ratio 2 Moderate and severe malnutrition Correia and Waitzberg, Clin Nutr 2003; 22:

21 Consequences of Malnutrition  Loss of lean body mass  Poor wound healing, anastomotic breakdown  Compromised immune defense  Impaired organ function  Increased mortality rates

22 Predictors of Poor Surgical Outcome ParameterPredictorAge Increased (>70 years) Type of Surgery Emergent, contaminated, open abdominal, thoracic or aortic surgery, prolonged surgery ASA > Class 3 Cardiac Presence of S3 gallop, jugular venous distention, MI within 6 mos, > 5 PVC, aortic stenosis, unstable angina, absence of beta-blockade Pulmonary COPD, FEV 1, 1.0, L PaO 2 50, fatigue with walking (steps) Neurologic Impairment, decreased function, nonambulatory status Renal Decreased creatinine clearance, BUN > 50 mg/dl Nutrition Hypoalbuminemia, hypokalemia Frailty Weakness, early exhaustion, dependency American College of Physicians

23 Loss of Lean Mass and Mortality *assuming no preexisting loss Complications Relative to Loss of Lean Body Mass* Lean Body Mass (% loss of total) Complications (related to lost lean mass) Associated Mortality (%) 10 Impaired immunity, increased infection Decreased healing, weakness, infection 30 Too weak to sit, pressure sores, pneumonia, no healing Death, usually from pneumonia 100

24 Goals of Surgical Nutritional Support  Maintain host defenses  Support metabolic response  Reduce the catabolic state and preserve lean body mass  Support the depleted patient throughout the catabolic phase of recovery

25 Goals of Surgical Nutritional Support  Improve patient outcomes Decrease surgical mortalityDecrease surgical mortality Decrease surgical complications and infectionDecrease surgical complications and infection  Prevent/treat macro/micronutrient deficiencies  Speed the healing / recovery process (Decrease the LOS)

26 Surgery Full Wound healing Full Restoration of metabolic and immune homeostasis Endocrine, metabolic, and immunologic alterations Nutrition Support in Surgery Adequate Adequate body reserves body reserves food intake food intake

27 Nutrition Support in Surgery Surgery Wound healing Restoration of metabolic and immune homeostasis Endocrine, metabolic, and immunologic alterations Incomplete restoration of organ functions Multiple organ dysfunction, failure, and death Inadequate body reserves Inadequate food intake Nutrition Support

28 Prospective randomized studies 2-3 days: No improvement in outcome 5-7 days: Influence in outcome 7-10 days: Benefits outcome Reduction of postop morbidity and mortality Reduction of postop morbidity and mortality Meguid: Am J Surg 1990; 159:345 **ENDPOINTS: Monitor nutrient intake (Calorie Count) Total lymphocyte count Necessary Length of Preoperative Nutrition in Malnourished Patients

29 ASPEN Guidelines  Preoperative SNS should be administered to moderately or severely malnourished patients undergoing major gastrointestinal surgery for days if the operation can be safely postponed.  Postoperative SNS should be administered to patients whom it is anticipated will be unable to meet their nutrient needs orally for a period of 7 to 10 days. A. S.P.E.N. Board of Directors, JPEN 2002

39 3. Indirect calorimetry Gold standard for measuring REEGold standard for measuring REE Calculated by measuring O consumption (VO) and COproduction (VCO) using the abbreviated Weir equation: REE = [3.9 (VO) (VCO)] x 1.44.Calculated by measuring O 2 consumption (VO 2 ) and CO 2 production (VCO 2 ) using the abbreviated Weir equation: REE = [3.9 (VO 2 ) (VCO 2 )] x Performs better than predictive equations with added stress factorsPerforms better than predictive equations with added stress factors Measurements made over min and 24hr EE is extrapolatedMeasurements made over min and 24hr EE is extrapolated Nutritional Requirements

50 Preferential Use of Enteral Nutrition  EN delivery has two main routes: gastric and post-pyloric  Use of the gut stimulates GALT & MALT → enhanced immune response  Early feeding can trigger gut immunity and thereby improve outcomes McClave, J Clin Gastro, Sept 2002

51 Preferential Use of Enteral Nutrition  Delay or failure may promote a proinflammatory state with ↑ disease severity & morbidity  Early EN in the post-operative period is a viable option to address recuperation needs, malnutrition and its complications  Reduce morbidity and cost compared with parenteral nutrition

52 Limitations Of EN Delivery  Deranged motility  Reduced exocrine pancreatic function  Intestinal hypoperfusion/ bowel ischemia Gastric reflux Aspiration Nausea, vomiting Abdominal distention and cramps Diarrhea Malabsorption

53 Parenteral Nutrition  Essential form of sustenance for patients who cannot tolerate the oral or tube feeding administered intravenously.

54 Indications: Parenteral Nutrition  General Indications Patients requiring long-term (>10 days) supplemental nutrition because they are unable to receive all of their daily energy, protein, and other nutrient requirements through oral or enteral feedingPatients requiring long-term (>10 days) supplemental nutrition because they are unable to receive all of their daily energy, protein, and other nutrient requirements through oral or enteral feeding Severe gut dysfunction or inability to tolerate enteral feedingsSevere gut dysfunction or inability to tolerate enteral feedings

61 Dangers of Overfeeding  Secretory diarrhea (with EN)  Volume overload, CHF  CO2 production: ventilatory demand  COCO2 production: ventilatory demand  O2 consumption

62 Dangers of Overfeeding  Electrolyte problems: PO4, K, Mg  Hyperglycemia, glycosuria, dehydration, lipogenesis, fatty liver, liver dysfunction  Increased mortality (in adult studies)
