Crit Care Med Prophylactic pantoprazole demonstrated no benefit to mechanically ventilated patients who received enteral nutrition [ 11 ]. J Parenter Enteral Nutr References Stollmann N, Metz D Pathophysiology and prophylaxis of stress ulcer in intensive care unit patients. May 31, s Citation: Although this study was not powered to determine a difference in CSGIB based on contemporary rates of bleeding, it is hypothesis generating, and larger scales studies are currently enrolling [ 1213 ].

Overall there is a lack of high quality data supporting stress ulcer prophylaxis in the modern era. McClave S, Martindale R, Vanek Guidelines for the provision and assessment of nutrition support therapy in the adult critically ill patient.

Stress gastropathy occurs when the mucosal barrier of the gastrointestinal GI tract is compromised and can no longer block the detrimental effects of hydrogen ions and free radicals [ 1 ]. Randomized double-blind exploratory study.

Since this guodelines publication more than two decades ago, the incidence of clinically significant gastrointestinal bleeding secondary to stress gastropathy has significantly declined. Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial. Finally, a pilot randomized control trial was recently conducted by Cook and colleagues to evaluate the safety of withholding SUP.

The collection of data does lend credence to the theory that, with advances in clinical practice, there may no longer be benefit to SUP in our highest risk patients admitted to the surgical and medical ICU.

Proc Bayl Med Cent guidelined One of these advancements is early goal directed therapy EGDTwhich promotes aggressive early fluid resuscitation in septic patients.

Furthermore, enteral nutrition may independently provide prophylaxis against stress gastropathy by increasing intragastric pH, similar to medication therapies, and providing cytotoxin protection [ 145 ].

Keywords Stress ulcwr prophylaxis; Gastrointestinal bleeding ; Proton pump inhibitor; Nutrition Review Preventing stress gastropathy has been a mainstay in the management of critically ill patients for decades. As the incidence of significant bleeding decreases and the knowledge about prophylaxis-related adverse events increases, it is necessary to revisit current clinical practice.


In conclusion, the prevalence of clinically significant bleeding has decreased from 1. A landmark trial in identified the most significant risk factors for stress gastropathy as mechanical ventilation for greater than 48 h and primary coagulopathy.

The increase in recognition and early treatment of sepsis has likely impacted a reduction in stress ulcers through avoidance prophylaxi hypoperfusion [ 6 ]. May 24, ; Accepted date: Tolerance of enteral nutrition may be the surrogate marker for adequate perfusion as seen in the studies discussed above.

A pilot randomized clinical trial and meta-analysis. J Intensive Care Med Intensive Care Med Additionally, the recognition of the important of enteral nutrition early in the ICU stay encourages mesenteric perfusion and reduces risk for development of ischemic damage.

In addition, the most widely used agents for SUP, proton pump inhibitors PPIhave been associated with an increasing number of adverse effects, including myocardial infarction, Clostridium difficile infectionosteoporosis and ventilator associated pneumonia [ 5 ]. May 31, s. These patients have been evaluated in several studies that have concluded that enteral nutrition was able to decrease overt bleeding and no additional pharmacologic prophylaxis was needed [ 1415 ].

Neither study evaluated the role of early enteral nutrition.
