Metabolimeter for critically ill patients

Metabolimeter for critically ill patients. Quark RMR is a new-generation metabolimeter for the measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and energy substrate utilisation through indirect calorimetry. Ease of use, functionality, high accuracy and affordability make it a valuable instrument for the exact determination of the daily energy needs in critically ill patients. The device helps clinical nutritionists monitor the nutritional status of an individual affected by a pathology, thus preventing malnutrition with worsening effect on the course of the disease and on the duration of hospitalisation. Executing a test with Quark RMR is simple, takes approximately 15 minutes (or more if choosing a different protocol) and does not require patient cooperation, allowing for in-bed monitoring or testing. The system can also be used safely with mechanically ventilated patients, thanks to the disposable connection for the detection of REE. Hospital departments that may benefit from the use of a the metabolimeter include the nutritional department, the intensive care unit, cardiology (postoperative rehabilitation), pneumology (COPD, postoperative
rehabilitation, sleep disorders) and anaesthesiology.
