Enteral Formulation Enriched in Protein

Using high-protein formulations has allowed the administration of up to 2g/kg protein in patients with protein losses, such as those with fistulas, burns, and abscesses, and in calorie-intolerant patients. One controlled trial has shown that a high protein intake reduces mortality in burn patients, whereas high energy intake in sepsis appears to increase mortality.
