Abstract: Beside medical or surgical therapy, the nutrition of critically ill patients is of major interest because catabolic and anabolic processes need to intertwine. For a correlation between therapy and nutrition, one must take into account the physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms of stress response comprising of the neuroendocrin, immune and metabolic responses. For critically ill patient the attending team must take into account all the factors involved in illness: the status of the patient at the moment of admittance for establishing the caloric needs and the proportion between proteins, fat, trace elements and vitamins, and also the route of nutrition. We present a retrospective study on 564 critically ill patients admitted into 2nd Intensive Care Unit of County Hospital Arad. The conclusions underline positive and negative results regarding the correct nutrition.
