Total Parenteral Nutrition Equations

Caloric Requirements: (Harris-Benedict Equations)

Basal energy expenditure (BEE)

Females: 655 + (9.6 x wt in kg) + (1.85 x ht in cm) - (4.7 x age) Males: 66 + (13.7 x wt in kg) + (5 x ht in cm) - (6.8 x age)

A. BEE x 1.2 = Caloric requirement for minimally stressed patient

B. BEE x 1.3 = Caloric requirement for moderately stressed patient (inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, surgery)

C. BEE x 1.5 = Caloric requirement for severely stressed patient (major sepsis, burns, AIDS, liver disease)

D. BEE x 1.7 = Caloric requirement for extremely stressed patient (traumatic burns >50%, open head trauma, multiple stress)
