Explain Study Procedures Feeding via EN is standard of care Feeding via PN is standard of care, if patient unable to take enough EN SF-36 follow up at 3 and 6 months to check on patients status

Olimel Critically ill patients can become malnourished quickly and this may lead to an increased rate of infections and death. Intensive care units are not being fed well and on average they receive only 40-60% of the calories and protein that they should be receiving. Signals from studies show that giving more calories and protein to overweight and underweight patients may improve survival.

The purpose of this study is to find out if giving more calories and protein to underweight and overweight critically ill patients (BMI <25 or 35) will improve their chances of survival. Risks and benefits Risks: No known risks but there maybe others that we do not know about. If the MD in charge of your family member feels that your family member is deteriorating because of the

supplement, he can stop the study supplement. Your family member will be monitored daily Benefits: your family member may have a better chance of survival but we do not know for sure. Other elements of ICF Voluntary participation If refuse participation, will still receive the same medical

care. Consent may be withdrawn at any time No compensation, no cost Contact person for their rights and questions Data will be accessed but kept confidential Provide ICF to SDM Provide a copy of the REB approved ICF to family for their review

Give them sufficient time to ask questions and encourage them to speak to the Site Investigator. Ensure that they have understood that they are signing on behalf of their family member Provide contact numbers for questions or concerns After consent obtained When the SDM has given consent, ensure that they

have dated and signed the ICF. Provide them with one copy. Place a copy of the signed ICF in the medical chart and copies in your site files Follow up with SDM Thank the SDM for the opportunity to include the patient in TOP-UP

Provide the SDM with informal updates when you see them during future ICU visits, whether things are uneventful or not Ongoing contact with the SDM will help to make their exposure to medical research a positive experience Resources online
