The alterations in metabolic (oxygen consumption [VO2] and carbon dioxide production [VCO2]) and hemodynamic (heart rate and blood pressure) parameters caused by various common intensive care activities were examined in a group of 23 mechanically-ventilated critically-ill patients. The observed variations in metabolic rate can be classified into four categories as follows: (a) the lowest energy expenditure, which was associated with sleeping in the majority (83 percent) of instances; (b… CONTINUE READING
