Surgical Nutrition Calculator

This enteral nutrition calculator may be used to calculate the enteral tube feeding rate and supplemental protein required to meet a patient's particular nutritional needs. It assumes a daily caloric requirement of 30 kcal/kg and protein requirement of 1.5 g/kg for surgical and trauma patients (although these may be modified as desired). If the patient's weight is greater than 20% above ideal body weight (IBW), the adjusted body weight is used.

Patient Sex (choose one)
Height (in inches)
Admission Weight (in kilograms)
Caloric requirement (kcal/kg/day)
Protein requirement (gm/kg/day)
Propofol Dose (if applicable) (in mL/hr)
The lipid emulsion used in propofol provides 1.1 kcal/mL
