Critically ill patients often are malnourished and in protein catabolism, impairing their ability to heal. A transitional feeding protocol, aimed at keeping patients adequately nourished while they move from parenteral or enteral nutrition to an oral diet, can improve outcomes for surgical and medical intensive care unit patients.
