22 Nov Feeding intolerance score
Feeding intolerance (FI) is common in critically ill patients fed with enteral nutrition. For now, no reliable quantitative assessment was available in clinical practice. Thus, CCCNTG proposed a FI scoring system based on gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms to assist the implementation of enteral nutrition. In a post-hoc study of the NEED trial, FI score is independently associated with 28-day mortality in critically ill patients with acceptable predictive accuracy.
