Patients in critical illness frequently present hypermetabolism， which can extremely increase the rest energy expenditure（REE）. We hypothesize that if we alleviate the extremely increased REE will improve ICU patients' outcome
Condition or disease
This study focuses on the early changes of REE of critical ill patients when they admitted to ICU.
