  • Study is first to demonstrate importance of using indirect calorimetry (IC) to measure variable and dynamic energy needs of COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit
  • Data gathered from Q-NRG+ metabolic monitor device shows variance in resting energy expenditure (REE) measurements in comparison to frequently utilized common predictive equations, impacting likelihood of over- and under-feeding
  • Practical guidance available to promote safety of healthcare providers when conducting indirect calorimetry on COVID-19 patients
