Replacing Protein Via Enteral Nutrition in a Stepwise Approach in Critically Ill Patients


Brief description of study

In this study, we will explore the feasibility of a randomized controlled trial that will compare high protein dose from ICU day 6 to 14 with moderate protein intake.

Detailed Study Description

Patients will be recruited on day 1-2 of ICU admission. On day 5, patients will be randomized into one of the two intervention arms;

Replenish Protein group:

Patients randomized to this group will receive 2 g of protein/kg/day (acceptable range 1.8 - 2.2 g of protein/kg/day) for day 6-14.

Standard Protein group:

Patients randomized to this group will receive protein at 0.8 - 1.0 g of protein/kg/day for day 6-14

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03480555
