Length of Stay: Calculate the ICU impact
Evidence-based nutrition assessment using Indirect Calorimetry has been shown to potentially reduce LOS in the ICU as much as 2.9 days1
- Approximately 40 - 50% of ICU patients are malnourished. 2,3,4
- Malnutrition is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. 5-11
- Predictive equations are accurate 30% of the time. 12,13,14
- Average cost $4,772 per day. 15
