Ernährung in der Intensivmedizin

  • C. Tüller
  • Stephan Marsch


Fortschritte in verschiedenen therapeutischen und technischen Bereichen haben dazu geführt, dass Patienten oft lange Zeit auf Intensivstationen behandelt werden. Die quantitativ und qualitativ adäquate Ernährung von intensivmedizinischen Patienten ist zur Aufrechterhaltung bzw. Wiederherstellung der Organhomöostase von besonderer Bedeutung. Mangels Endpunktstudien und eindeutiger Daten zu diesem Thema sind Entscheidungen rund um die Ernährung schwer kranker Patienten schwierig zu treffen. Im Folgenden sollen Indikation und Durchführung der Ernährungstherapie bei intensivmedizinischen Patienten erörtert werden.
