  Purpose

The aim of this study is to perform a prospective, randomized, controlled blinded study in critically patients to assess the necessity for measuring daily resting energy expenditure as a guide for nutritional support. Our hypothesis is that tight caloric control will reduce the rate of new infections.

Study Design :Multi-center, randomized, single blinded, controlled study. Study Population: newly-admitted, adult mechanically ventilated ICU patients.


Condition Intervention
Mechanical Ventilation Complication
Dietary Supplement: Indirect Calorimetry measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure .

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Tight Caloric Balance in ICU Patients: a Multicenter, Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of nosocomial infections [ Time Frame: After 48 to 72 hours /daily assessment: within 28 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rate of nosocomial infections acquired after 48 to 72 hours following admission up to day 28/or discharge will be evaluated


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Metabolic control [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to day 28/or discharge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Glucose concentration, insulin administration, rate of hypoglycemic events will be daily assessed

  • Caloric control [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to day 28/or discharge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Success of tight caloric control:accumulative and maximum negative energy balance


Estimated Enrollment: 560
Study Start Date: November 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Control group
Patients in this group will receive enteral nutrition/parenteral nutrition or combination of enteral and parenteral nutrition according to the "liberal " regimen, i.e. according to local practice.
Experimental: Indirect Calorimetry
Study group: Indirect Calorimetry (IC) Patients in this group will receive enteral nutrition/parenteral nutrition or combination of enteral and parenteral nutrition according to the individual energy requirements calculated by Indirect Calorimetry measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE).
Dietary Supplement: Indirect Calorimetry measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure .
Patients in this group will receive enteral nutrition/parenteral nutrition or combination of enteral and parenteral nutrition according to the individual energy requirements calculated by Indirect Calorimetry.

Detailed Description:

Study objectives

To evaluate the effect of tight caloric control in critical patients on:

  • The rate of acquired nosocomial infections (Ventilated associated pneumonia, Catheter related infections, Urinary tract infections)
  • Mortality rates, length of stay in the ICU and in hospital, length of ventilation and incidence of non-infectious complications.

Primary endpoint:

Rate of nosocomial infections (for definitions see appendage 1) acquired after 48 to 72 hours following admission.

Secondary endpoints

  • Metabolic control: glucose concentration, insulin administration, rate of hypoglycemic events.
  • Success of tight caloric control: accumulative and maximum negative energy balance.
  • Organ function: SOFA score.
  • Rate of non-infectious complications: requirement for surgery or occurrence of pressure sores.
  • Length of ICU stay and of assisted ventilation (LOS and LOV)
  • ICU survival rate.
  • Patient status and disposition on day 28 or at hospital discharge.
  • 3 & 6 months survival.
