The hypermetabolism-organ failure complex is a systemic metabolic disorder. Reductions in morbidity and mortality require the restoration and maintenance of oxygen transport and the rise of metabolic support. Metabolic support requires an understanding of the metabolic response to injury and the principles of basic nutrition. When knowledgeably applied, metabolic support is safe and effective.
