This webinar will discuss the use of indirect calorimetry for measuring energy expenditure across a range of clinical conditions using a case study approach. Part 1 will be presented by Ms Sara Dowling and Ms Miranda Green and focus on the using of indirect calorimetry applied in patients with wound healing requirements, with specific case studies in patients requiring Biodegradable Temporising Matrix (BTM) for the surgical management of Necrotising Fasciitis and Major Burn Injuries. Practical implications and considerations of using indirect calorimetry in the clinical setting will also be presented. Part 2 of the webinar will be presented by Dr Helen Vidot and cover assessment of body composition and the estimation of energy requirements in patients with cirrhosis, including the role of sarcopenia and the use and limitations of prediction equations to estimate energy expenditure within this population. This session will explore in detail the difficulties of estimating energy expenditure in the presence of ascites and the clinical application of indirect calorimetry as a novel method to determine the contribution of ascites to energy expenditure.
