BACKGROUND Enteral nutrition is believed to augment splanchnic perfusion, thereby preserving splanchnic integrity, whereas parenteral nutrition does not offer this benefit. In an effort to study this, we compared splanchnic oxygen exchange and blood flow in critically ill, septic patients to normal controls during enteral or total parenteral nutrition. METHODS Splanchnic oxygen exchange and hepatic blood flow characteristics in 14 critically ill, septic patients were compared to 19 normal… CONTINUE READING
