Attenuation of resting energy expenditure following hematopoietic SCT in children
Bone Marrow Transplantation, 02/24/2012
Bechard LJ et al. – Children undergoing hematopoietic SCT (HSCT) exhibit a significant reduction in resting energy expenditure (REE) in the early weeks after transplantation, a phenomenon that places them at risk for overfeeding. Serial measurements of REE or reductions in energy intake should be considered when PN is the primary mode of nutrition.
