[Nutritional support for critically ill patients suffering from SARS-CoV-2 infection].

ABSTRACT: Patients with severe cases of COVID-19 are at high nutritional risk during their ICU stay. Prolonged immobilization associated with an exacerbated systemic inflammatory response is a major provider of ICU-acquired muscle weakness. Early enteral nutrition is recommended to gradually reach the energy target of 25 kcal/kg/day and protein target of 1.3 g/kg/day around D4. The occurrence of a Refeeding syndrome should be closely monitored. In case of feeding intolerance refractory to a prokinetic treatment, complementary or total parenteral nutrition is advised, favouring new generation mixed lipid emulsions (containing fish oil) and regular monitoring of triglyceridemia. Nutrition care of critically ill patients should be carried out with limited procedures that may pose a risk of contamination for the healthcare staff.
