Voeding bij ernstig zieke kinderen

  • K. F. M. Joosten


Adequate voeding is een belangrijk aspect van de zorg voor ernstig zieke kinderen. Goede voeding is essentieel voor volledig herstel en normaal functioneren van het opgroeiende kind. Meer en meer wordt duidelijk dat het van belang is om inzicht te krijgen in de stofwisseling en de hormonale regelsystemen van het ernstig zieke kind om adequate voedingstherapie te kunnen toepassen. Daarnaast is kennis van energieverbruik en stikstofuitscheiding van een ernstig ziek kind onontbeerlijk. Evenzo wordt steeds duidelijker dat voeding, evenals andere aspecten van intensive care, maatwerk is.


Nutritional support is an important aspect of the clinical management of pediatric intensive care patients. Adequate feeding is essential for complete recovery and normal functional outcome of the growing child. It has become more and more clear that insight into metabolic and endocrine regulation systems during critical illness will allow better prediction of nutritional requirements. Knowledge about energy expenditure and urinary nitrogen excretion of a critically ill child is of great value. Just as for all other aspects of intensive care treatment, individually adjusted nutritional treatment is indispensable.
