This review compared standard parenteral nutrition (PN) with standard enteral nutrition (EN) in critically ill patients. Reduced mortality was associated with PN but only in comparison with delayed EN. More infectious complications were noted with PN, although their clinical importance was unclear. The conclusions appear reliable, but the authors highlighted the need for higher quality studies to confirm their findings.
