Estimating energy requirements is necessary in clinical practice when indirect calorimetry is impractical. This paper systematically reviews current methods for estimating energy requirements. Conclusions include: there is discrepancy between the characteristics of populations upon which predictive equations are based and current populations; tools are not well understood; and patient care can be compromised by inappropriate application of the tools. Data comparing tools and methods are… CONTINUE READING
