Utilization of intensive care unit nutrition consultation is associated with reduced mortality.
The aim of this project was to investigate the prevalence of nutrition consultation (NC) in U.S. intensive care units (ICUs) and to examine its association with patient outcomes. Data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's state inpatient databases was utilized from 2010 - 2014. A multilevel logistic regression model was used to evaluate the relationship between NC and clinical outcomes. The investigators concluded that rates of NC were low in critically ill patients.
