In this JICS Cast, Dr David Gary and Dr James Day interview Prof. Darren Heyland about Critical Care Nutrition during the ICS State of the Art Meeting. He discusses the PEP UP protocol, a new method for enteral feeding. He also talks about how we can identify patients that may benefit from agressive nutrition therapy using the NUTRIC score.
