Clinicians everywhere struggle with to care for the diverse array of patients with GI disorders. Patients with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases are at risk for compromised nutrition status. Alterations in GI function and physiology, either because of surgery or an underlying disease state, can result in a serious decline in one's nutrition status and quality of life. Understanding GI disorders and the tools available for their diagnosis and treatment allows the clinician to design an appropriate nutrition regimen and provide the best care to patients. This 2022-2023 lecture series will include presentations of common or very complex GI topics by clinicians who have worked at the bedside with these patients, and hence developed knowledge and skills that are not always in the textbook. Topics to be presented include:

  1. Diet and Management of Nutritional Deficiencies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  2. Nutritional Aspects of Gastroparesis
  3. Feeding the Patient with an Injured Pancreas
  4. The Myth of Tube Feeding Intolerance—Hint: It’s Not the Tube Feeding

Each session will be moderated by the course director and GI nutrition support expert, Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RDN.

Overall Course Learning Objectives

  1. Summarize details involved in the nutritional care of patients with GI disorders.
  2. Identify reliable resources to explore more information regarding nutrition support and GI nutrition as it relates to various GI disease states.
  3. Differentiate appropriate drugs and their dosing for specific GI disease states.
  4. Improve collaboration between gastroenterologists and nutrition professionals.


2022–2023 Series

Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2023
Time: 3:00–4:00 PM ET

Topic: The Myth of Tube Feeding Intolerance—Hint: It’s Not the Tube Feeding

Faculty: Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RDN, GI Nutrition Support Specialist, Charlottesville, VA; Andrew P. Copland, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, UVA Health, Charlottesville, VA

Moderator: Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RDN, GI Nutrition Support Specialist, Charlottesville, VA

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize barriers to effective enteral nutrition (EN) delivery in the hospitalized patient.
  2. Dispel myths surrounding EN intolerance by discussing GI physiology in the context of EN delivery.
  3. Develop a systematic approach to identify the commonly missed causes of EN intolerance in order to improve enteral feeding delivery.

Indirect Calorimetry: What to Expect at the Bedside

Estimating calorie needs during hospitalization can be a complex assignment given the dynamic nature of energy requirements that vary based on body composition, disease state, and surgical interventions. Indirect Calorimetry (IC) is the gold standard of energy measurement in the hospital setting and is a great tool to help understand resting energy requirements. IC can be utilized in many patient populations, including those spontaneously breathing and on a ventilator. Although every assessment will routinely provide resting energy expenditure (REE) and respiratory quotient (RQ), it is essential for users to understand all test results and be able to overcome technical challenges according to specific clinical circumstances. This webinar will take a bedside approach to highlight common and unique scenarios while utilizing indirect calorimetry and provide user tips for IC assessment during mechanical ventilation, mask, and canopy tests.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the role of indirect calorimetry in determining the caloric needs of hospitalized patients.
  2. Determine patient populations who would benefit from indirect calorimetry as part of the patient assessment.
  3. Identify which values are necessary to interpret results provided by indirect calorimetry.

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 16th World Intensive and Critical Care Congress (WICC), which will take place on August 26-30, 2023 in Istanbul.

The aging population, high-risk therapies, disasters, accidents, wars, terrorism attacks, immigration, and pandemics all have a great burden on the capacity of intensive care medicine. So far, the intensive care community in the developed World has acquired enormous expertise in the care of all kinds of critically-ill patients. However, intensive care resources are still severely limited in many parts of the World. It should be our mission to broaden our scope to consider all of the World’s critically-ill patients, and intensive care professionals, to bridge the gap for a better future in intensive care medicine.

The COVID-19 pandemic has recently been a big challenge for humankind and also for the global intensive care community. The pandemic emphasized the fact that multi-professional dedicated human resource is the most important factor in the practice of intensive care medicine. After a four-year break in the World Intensive and Critical Care Congresses, full of hard work and emotional burden, now it is time for the intensive care professionals from around the globe, to come together, to share knowledge and experience. Istanbul, bridging the continents will hopefully contribute to this mission of bridging the gap by hosting the 16th World Intensive and Critical Care Congress in 2023.

Istanbul has also a special meaning in the history of intensive care medicine. Florence Nightingale, one of the founders of intensive care medicine, known as “the lady with the lamp”, spent 2 years in Istanbul during the Crimean War in the 1850s to organize a nursing unit in the Selimiye Military Barracks to care for the wounded soldiers from the Crimean battlefront. 2023 is also a very special year for Turkey, as it is the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic. Therefore, we are very excited and motivated to perform a high-quality congress both scientifically and socially, featuring gender, age, profession, and national diversity.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Istanbul, on 26-30 August 2023, hoping your stay to be valuable and meaningful.

Prof. Dr. Arzu Topeli, MD, MSc

Congress Chair
