Critical Care

The importance of nutritional support for critically ill patients, e.g. surgical and intensive care patients cannot be overstated. Critical illness is typically associated with a catabolic stress state and increased morbidity and mortality risk. Because many of these patients are unconscious and have multiple-organ dysfunction, including gastro-intestinal dysfunction, optimal nutrition support is a big challenge.

At Danone Research & Innovation, we recognise the importance of optimal nutrition for critically ill patients. Danone Research & Innovation has a long-lasting, science-driven and patient-needs focusses innovation track record. We have played an important role in improving patient outcomes by providing state-of-the-art nutritional solutions and the development of nutritional guidelines and recommendations for critically ill patients.
