We welcome the submission of manuscripts, either describing original research, or reviewing scientific literature. Manuscripts should focus on well-defined topics not conclusively defined in the literature, such as (but not limited to):
- nutritional approaches to metabolically ill patients in intensive care unit
- long-term effects of nutritional decisions on post-ICU syndrome
- nutrition and exercise therapy in intensive care unit
- molecular and mechanistic insights of nutrients in critically ill patients
- food supplements in intensive care unit
- intervention studies in humans
Papers covering nutrition and metabolism, or comparison between parenteral and enteral nutrition in surgical critical-care, or controversy about the value of greater nutritional intake in critically ill patients, or glucose homeostasis and nutrition during critical illness, or gut microbiome, nutrition and critical illness, biochemical markers of nutrition support in critically ill patients, or nutrition in pregnant women admitted to the intensive care unit, or design of nutrition trials in critically ill patients are welcome.
