The support of critically ill patients is focused on respiration, cardiac function, renal function and the treatment of intercurrent or primary infection. However, nothing takes priority over metabolic support to sustain the possibility of recovery and to maintain the physiologic capacity for response although a thorough understanding of the complex metabolic alterations which occur following major trauma and during sepsis can provide the foundation for developing an effective nutritional prescription for each individual patient. In this book, the newest developments and concepts in this rapidly advancing and vitally important area of patient care and management are provided by leading experts in the field.
