Following the new ESPEN Standard Operating Procedures, the previous guidelines to provide best

medical nutritional therapy to critically ill patients have been updated. These guidelines define who are

the patients at risk, how to assess nutritional status of an ICU patient, how to define the amount of

energy to provide, the route to choose and how to adapt according to various clinical conditions. When to

start and how to progress in the administration of adequate provision of nutrients is also described. The

best determination of amount and nature of carbohydrates, fat and protein are suggested. Special

attention is given to glutamine and omega-3 fatty acids. Particular conditions frequently observed in

intensive care such as patients with dysphagia, frail patients, multiple trauma patients, abdominal surgery,

sepsis, and obesity are discussed to guide the practitioner toward the best evidence based therapy.

Monitoring of this nutritional therapy is discussed in a separate document.
