For which enteral nutrition solutions calculator fits?

This calculator suits all patients in whom caloric intake is fully derived from enteral nutrition. It can be used for cachectic, normal body weight or obese individuals. It can be used in cases when indirect calorimetry results are known. At the moment, it has not been adapted to cases when enteral nutrition is not being tolerated and supplemental parenteral nutrition is needed or where enteral nutrition is used to supplement inadequate oral intake. These functionalities will be added later.
