  Purpose
This is a single-center, prospective, randomized, comparative, double-blind controlled clinical study intended to establish 1) the optimal method of determining calorie requirements and 2) the optimal amount of protein supply in chronically ventilated patients.

Condition Intervention
Critically Ill Other: Caloric Support (Group 1) Other: Caloric Support (Group 2) Dietary Supplement: Protein dose of 1.1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram weight. Dietary Supplement: Protein at 1.1 grams per kilogram weight. Dietary Supplement: protein at a dose of 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Enteral Nutrition Enriched in Protein and Based on Indirect Calorimetry Measurement in Chronically Critically Ill Patients

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Group 1
Patients will be receive caloric support as dictated by Hariss-Benedict Formula (Group 1)
Other: Caloric Support (Group 1)
Four group 1-dose of caloric support will be calculated by Hariss-Benedict Formula measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure(REE).
Active Comparator: Group 2
Patients will be receive caloric support as dictated by Indirect Calorimetry (Group 2)
Other: Caloric Support (Group 2)
For group 2- dose of caloric support will be calculated by Indirect Calorimetric measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure(REE)
Active Comparator: Group 1A

After seven days of hospitalization and study enrollment patients who have not been weaned from ventilator, will be divided into three groups.

Patients in the first(Group 1A)group will receive caloric support calculated by the HARISS BENEDICT equation and protein dose of 1.1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.

Dietary Supplement: Protein dose of 1.1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.
Patients in the first group(Group 1A) will receive caloric support calculated by the HARRISS BENEDICT equation and protein dose of 1.1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.
Active Comparator: Group 2A

After seven days of hospitalization and study enrollment patients who have not been weaned from ventilator, will be divided into three groups.

Patients in the second group(Group 2A) will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at 1.1 grams per kilogram weight.

Dietary Supplement: Protein at 1.1 grams per kilogram weight.
Patients in the second group(Group 2A) will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at 1.1 grams per kilogram weight.
Active Comparator: Group 3A

After seven days of hospitalization and study enrollment patients who have not been weaned from ventilator, will be divided into three groups.

Patients in the third group will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at a dose of 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.

Dietary Supplement: protein at a dose of 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.
Patients in the third group (Group 3A) will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at a dose of 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.

Detailed Description:

The study will be performed in a chronic ventilation department.

Enrolled patients will be randomly allocated to receive calories as dictated by:

The Harriss-Benedict formula (Group 1) or Indirect Calorimetry (Group 2)

After one week of admission to the hospital department and study enrollment we will review the first results of the study.

After seven days of hospitalization and study enrollment patients who have not been weaned from the ventilator, will be divided into three groups.

  1. Patients in the first group will receive caloric support calculated by the HARRISS BENEDICT equation and protein dose of 1.1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.
  2. Patients in the second group will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at 1.1 grams per kilogram weight.
  3. Patients in the third group will receive caloric support as measured by indirect calorimetry and will receive protein at a dose of 1.5 grams per kilogram weight.

Outcome of treatment results will be performed after one ,four and eight weeks:

  1. Length of hospitalization
  2. Weaning from Mechanical Ventilation
  3. Development and progression of pressure ulcers
  4. Infectious diseases incidence
  5. Amount of insulin needed for glucose control
  6. Length of mechanical ventilation
  7. Readmission to Intensive Care Unit
  8. Mortality rate
