Heidegger CP, Berger MM, Graf S, et al. Optimisation of energy provision with supplemental parenteral nutrition in critically ill patients: a randomised controlled clinical trial. Lancet. 2012
I think everyone in attendance of CNW last year has been waiting for this study to be published, after all of the controversy from the landmark publication reporting using early supplemental TPN in the critically ill is more harmful than helpful.(Casaer M, Mesotten P, Hermans G. Early versus late parenteral nutrition in critically ill adults. NEJM. 2011;365(6):506-517.)
