A supplemental intravenous amino acid infusion sustains a positive protein balance for 24 hours in critically ill patients

Providing supplemental amino acids to ICU patients during a 3-h period results in improved whole-body net protein balance, without an increase in amino acid oxidation. The primary objective was to investigate if a 24-h intravenous amino acid infusion in critically ill patients has a sustained effect on whole-body protein balance as was seen after 3 h. Secondary objectives were ...

Short-term amino acid infusion improves protein balance in critically ill patients

Introduction Evidence behind the recommendations for protein feeding during critical illness is weak. Mechanistic studies are needed to elucidate the effects of amino acid and/or protein supplementation on protein metabolism before larger clinical trials with higher levels of protein feeding are initiated. Methods We studied the effects of parenteral amino acid supplementation ...
