For adults with ARDS who are mechanically ventilated, very low‐certainty evidence suggests that immunonutrition may reduce intensive care unit days (by 3.09 days; all results on average) and ventilator days (by 2.24 days), and may lead to higher oxygenation (partial pressure of oxygen [PaO2]/fraction of inspired oxygen [FiO2] ratio difference of 38.88 mmHg) compared with standard formula feeding. Low‐ to very low‐certainty evidence suggests little to no difference in nosocomial infection between the two types of nutrition; effects on mortality and on the overall number of adverse events are uncertain due to imprecision of the results.
