Over the past decade, the use of supraphysiologic doses of micronutrients (also called metabolic resuscitation) in critically ill patients has gained significant attention. Building upon preclinical and observational human data, numerous randomized controlled trials have tested the impact of multiple micronutrients on various outcomes in critically ill patients. At the 2022 American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Preconference Course, three world-renowned speakers delivered talks on the (1) overall role of micronutrients and, specifically, (2) selenium and vitamin C and (3) vitamin D and zinc in critically ill patients. Here, the case presentation and discussion from the postsession question and answer period are presented. The moderator for this session was Jose Pimiento, MD, and the speakers and panelists were Christian Stoppe, MD, Todd Rice, MD, and Daren Heyland, MD.
