a web tool to calculate plans for artificial nutrition (enteral+parenteral) in intensive care patients.

YaNuCa is a JavaScript web tool to calculate plans for artificial nutrition (enteral+parenteral) in intensive care patients, with special regard to the different phases of critical illness, stress metabolism and stages of rehabilitation. Proper nutrition can be crucial for the outcome of critically ill patients at every stage of treatment and rehabilitation. This tool has been successfully used for years by two intensive care units at the University Clinic for Internal Medicine in Heidelberg/Germany. It is based on the ESPEN Guidelines for parenteral nutrition in intensive care (ESPEN = European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism).
