Abstract

Factors influencing nitrogen balance during total parenteral nutrition have been investigated in 34 critically ill injured patients studied during the first 6 days after trauma. Basal nitrogen balance was severely negative (-0.26±0.12 (SD) g·kg-1), but improved consistently during treatment. Nitrogen intake proved to be the major determinant of a positive, or less negative, nitrogen balance, only secondarily followed by total energy intake corrected to predicted basal energy expenditure, according to multiple regression analysis. The amount of non-protein calories and the non-protein calorie to nitrogen ratio appeared to have little significance on nitrogen balance, when corrected for the two former variables.
