|Control Group||EN : start EN at 20-30 ml/h per day up to maximal 150 ml/h per day; or day1: 500 ml, day2: 1000 ml, day3: 1500 ml of EN dependant on gastrointestinal tolerance (gastric residue volume more than 500ml). Nutritional products as currently used in our institution.|
experimental arm: Supplemental Parenteral Nutrition (SPN) is added to enteral nutrition (EN) to reach 100% of their predicted energy needs from ICU day 4.
In the treated group, SPN is started if at day 4 energy input by EN is < 60% of energy target in order to reach 100% of energy target by peripheral or central line. Nutritional products as currently used in our institution. SPN is composed of EN and PN, both techniques being currently used in our institution.
SPN : SPN : in the treated group, SPN is started if at day 4 energy input by EN is < 60% of energy target in order to reach 100% of energy target by peripheral or central line.
