Arterial and venous plasma amino acids were determined in 28 intensive care patients randomly assigned to receive 10 d of isoenergetic, isonitrogenous feedings that differed sixfold in glutamine content. Subjects were generally well-matched for age, injury severity, and disease diagnoses. Nasojejunal feedings were started within 48 h of admission. Data were analyzed from those 19 subjects still receiving > or = 50 mL feeding/h on day 5. Both groups had comparable gastric residuals, stool… CONTINUE READING
