The latest UVA Nutrition Support e-journal club is now posted on the website.  This month's article and discussion is on one of the team's favorite topics--the "art and science" of checking residuals in the ICU.

February 2013: Reignier J, Mercier E, Le Gouge A, et al. Effect of not monitoring residual gastric volume on risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia in adults receiving mechanical ventilation and early enteral feeding: a randomized controlled trial. JAMA. 2013;309(3):249-56.
