Krebs ED, O'Donnell K, Berry A, Guidry CA, Hassinger TE, Sawyer RG. Volume-based feeding improves nutritional adequacy in surgical patients. American journal of surgery. 2018 Dec;216(216). 1155-1159. PMID: 29807631 [PubMed]
Critically ill surgical patients often receive inadequate enteral nutrition using traditional rate-based feeding methods. An alternative strategy is volume-based feeding, in which feeding rates are adjusted to deliver a goal volume per day.
