Nutrition is an essential care we provide to critically ill patients aiming to avoid severe muscle wasting and weakness, which correlate with mortality and long-term burdens. Considering that the ICU patients' nutritional needs vary with the phase of critical illness, evidence-based nutrition protocols are so much needed.

Dr Tarcukovic, one of the participants of the ESICM Nutrition Pathway, shares with us her experience in this Education Programme and discusses a few key points of the physiopathology of nutrition and how to feed and treat such critical patients.
