4 Health Care Associated Malnutrition
Nutrition deficiencies associated with physiological derangement and organ dysfunction that occurs in a health care facility Patients who will benefit the most from nutrition therapy and who will be harmed the most from by iatrogenic malnutrition (underfeeding)

5 Early and Adequate Nutrition is therapy that modulates the underlying disease process and impacts patient outcomes Adjunctive Supportive Care Proactive Primary Therapy

6 Early Feeding Supports Gastrointestinal Structure and Function
Maintenance of gut barrier function Increased secretion of mucus, bile, IgA Maintenance of peristalsis and blood flow Attenuates oxidative stress and inflammation Supports GALT Improves glucose absorption Alverdy (CCM 2003;31:598) Kotzampassi Mol Nutr Food Research 2009 Nguyen CCM 2011

9 Feeding the Hypotensive Patient?
Prospectively collected multi-institutional ICU database of 1,174 patients who required mechanical ventilation for more than two days and were on vasopressor agents to support blood pressure. The beneficial effect of early feeding is more evident in the sickest patients, i.e, those on multiple vasopressor agents. DiGiovine et al. AJCC 2010

10 Optimal Amount of Protein and Calories for Critically Ill Patients?
Early EN (within hrs of admission) is recommended! Optimal Amount of Protein and Calories for Critically Ill Patients?

20 Optimal Amount of Calories for Critically Ill Patients: Depends on how you slice the cake!
Objective: To examine the relationship between the amount of calories recieved and mortality using various sample restriction and statistical adjustment techniques and demonstrate the influence of the analytic approach on the results. Design: Prospective, multi-institutional audit Setting: 352 Intensive Care Units (ICUs) from 33 countries. Patients: 7,872 mechanically ventilated, critically ill patients who remained in ICU for at least 96 hours. Heyland Crit Care Med 2011

21 Association between 12 day average caloric adequacy and
60 day hospital mortality (Comparing patients rec’d >2/3 to those who rec’d <1/3) A. In ICU for at least 96 hours. Days after permanent progression to exclusive oral feeding are included as zero calories* B. In ICU for at least 96 hours. Days after permanent progression to exclusive oral feeding are excluded from average adequacy calculation.* C. In ICU for at least 4 days before permanent progression to exclusive oral feeding. Days after permanent progression to exclusive oral feeding are excluded from average adequacy calculation.* D. In ICU at least 12 days prior to permanent progression to exclusive oral feeding* Remove the 1/3-2/3 data *Adjusted for evaluable days and covariates,covariates include region (Canada, Australia and New Zealand, USA, Europe and South Africa, Latin America, Asia), admission category (medical, surgical), APACHE II score, age, gender and BMI.

28 Trophic vs. Full enteral feeding in critically ill patients with acute respiratory failure
“survivors who received initial full-energy enteral nutrition were more likely to be discharged home with or without help as compared to a rehabilitation facility (68.3% for the full-energy group vs. 51.3% for the trophic group; p = .04).” Rice CCM 2011;39:967

33 What about the physically recovery of underfed patients?
Trophic vs. Full enteral feeding in critically ill patients with acute respiratory failure Randomized Good follow up ITT No blinding Internally valid How representative are these patients to ALL the patients in your ICU? May miss an important negative effect in ‘high risk’ patients What about the physically recovery of underfed patients? No benefit, potential harm, minimal cost advantage= Do not use routinely!

34 ICU patients are not all created equal…should we expect the impact of nutrition therapy to be the same across all patients?

35 How do we figure out who will benefit the most from Nutrition Therapy?
Need picture of malnourshed child

36 Health Care Associated Malnutrition
Do Nutrition Screening tools help us discriminate those ICU patients that will benefit the most from artificial nutrition? Patients who will benefit the most from nutrition therapy and who will be harmed the most from by iatrogenic malnutrition (underfeeding)

37

38 All ICU patients treated the same

39 Albumin: a marker of malnutrition?
Low levels very prevalent in critically ill patients Negative acute-phase reactant such that synthesis, breakdown, and leakage out of the vascular compartment with edema are influenced by cytokine-mediated inflammatory responses Proxy for severity of underlying disease (inflammation) not malnutrition Pre-albumin shorter half life but same limitation

40 Subjective Global Assessment?

41 When training provided in advance, can produce reliable estimates of malnutrition
Note rates of missing data

42 mostly medical patients; not all ICU
rate of missing data? no difference between well-nourished and malnourished patients with regard to the serum protein values on admission, LOS, and mortality rate.

43 “We must develop and validate
diagnostic criteria for appropriate assignment of the described malnutrition syndromes to individual patients.”

via the Enteral Route in Critically Ill Patients: The PEP uP Protocol Daren K. Heyland Professor of Medicine Queen’s University, Kingston General Hospital Kingston, ON Canada

69 A Major Paradigm Shift in How we Feed Enterally
The Efficacy of Enhanced Protein-Energy Provision via the Enteral Route in Critically Ill Patients: The PEP uP Protocol! Different feeding options based on hemodynamic stability and suitability for high volume intragastric feeds. In select patients, we start the EN immediately at goal rate, not at 25 ml/hr. We target a 24 hour volume of EN rather than an hourly rate and provide the nurse with the latitude to increase the hourly rate to make up the 24 hour volume. Start with a semi elemental solution, progress to polymeric Tolerate higher GRV threshold (250 ml or more) Motility agents and protein supplements are started immediately Nurse reports daily on nutritional adequacy. A Major Paradigm Shift in How we Feed Enterally

70 The PEP uP Protocol Stable patients should be able to tolerate goal rate We use a concentrated solution to maximize calories per ml Begin 24 hour volume-based feeds. After initial tube placement confirmed, start Pepatmen Total volume to receive in 24 hours is 17ml x weight (kg)= <write in 24 target volume>. Determine initial rate as per Volume Based Feeding Schedule. Monitor gastric residual volumes as per Adult Gastric Flow Chart and Volume Based Feeding Schedule. OR Begin Peptamen 1.5 at 10 mL/h after initial tube placement confirmed. Hold if gastric residual volume >500 ml and ask Doctor to reassess. Reassess ability to transition to 24 hour volume-based feeds next day. {Intended for patient who is hemodynamically unstable (on high dose or escalating doses of vasopressors, or inadequately resuscitated) or not suitable for high volume enteral feeding (ruptured AAA, upper intestinal anastomosis, or impending intubation)} NPO. Please write in reason: __________________ ______ (only if contraindication to EN present: bowel perforation, bowel obstruction, proximal high output fistula. Recent operation and high NG output not a contraindication to EN.) Reassess ability to transition to 24 hour volume-based feeds next day. If unstable or unsuitable, just use trophic feeds Note indications for trophic feeds Drs need to justify why there are keeping patients NPO We want to minimize the use of NPO but if selected, need to reassess next day Note, there are only a few absolute contraindications to EN

71 It’s not just about calories...
Inadequate protein intake Loss of lean muscle mass Immune dysfunction Weak Prolonged mechanical ventilation So in order to minimize this, we order: Protein supplement Beneprotein® 14 grams mixed in 120 mls sterile water administered bid via NG

72 Other Strategies to Maximize the Benefits and Minimize the Risks of EN
Motility agents started at initiation of EN rather that waiting till problems with High GRV develop. Maxeran 10 mg IV q 6h (halved in renal failure) If still develops high gastric residuals, add Erythromycin 200 mg q 12h. Can be used together for up to 7 days but should be discontinued when not needed any more Reassess need for motility agents daily

82 Health Care Associated Malnutrition
What if you can’t provide adequate nutrition enterally? … to add PN or not to add PN, that is the question!

83 Early vs. Late Parenteral Nutrition in Critically ill Adults
4620 critically ill patients Randomized to early PN Rec’d 20% glucose 20 ml/hr then PN on day 3 OR late PN D5W IV then PN on day 8 All patients standard EN plus ‘tight’ glycemic control Results: Late PN associated with 6.3% likelihood of early discharge alive from ICU and hospital Shorter ICU length of stay (3 vs 4 days) Fewer infections (22.8 vs 26.2 %) No mortality difference Cesaer NEJM 2011

84 Early vs. Late Parenteral Nutrition in Critically ill Adults
? Applicability of data No one give so much IV glucose in first few days No one practice tight glycemic control Right patient population? Majority (90%) surgical patients (mostly cardiac-60%) Short stay in ICU (3-4 days) Low mortality (8% ICU, 11% hospital) >70% normal to slightly overweight Not an indictment of PN Early group only rec’d PN for 1-2 days on average Late group –only ¼ rec’d any PN Cesaer NEJM 2011

85 What if you can’t provide adequate nutrition enterally?
… to TPN or not to TPN, that is the question! Case by case decision Maximize EN delivery prior to initiating PN Use early in high risk cases

86 R The TOP UP Trial Primary Outcome 60-day mortality PN for 7 days
Stratified by: Site BMI Med vs Surg ICU patients R BMI <25 60-day mortality BMI >35 Fed enterally Control

87 In Conclusion Health Care Associate Malnutrition is rampant
Not all ICU patients are the same in terms of ‘risk’ Iatrogenic underfeeding is harmful in some ICU patients or some will benefit more from aggressive feeding (avoiding protein/calorie debt) BMI and/or NUTRIC Score is one way to quantify that risk Need to do something to reduce iatrogenic malnutrition in your ICU! Audit your practice first! PEP uP protocol in all Selective use of small bowel feeds then sPN in high risk patients

88 Not tolerating EN at 96 hrs?
Start PEP UP Day 3 >80% of Goal Calories YES No NO Yes Anticipated Long Stay? High Risk? Yes Carry on! No Maximize EN with motility agents and small bowel feeding No problem YES Not tolerating EN at 96 hrs? No NO Yes Supplemental PN?
