Q-NRG+ Metabolic Monitor

Energy needs in critically ill patients are dynamic1 and ASPEN guidelines suggest/recommend Indirect Calorimetry (IC) to measure Resting Energy Expenditure (REE).2,3  Q-NRG+, the next generation of IC technology, enables individualized metabolic measurements to accurately assess patients' REE—helping to identify personal nutritional needs.

Indications for Use

The Q-NRG+ portable Metabolic Monitors are indicated for the measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) for spontaneously breathing and ventilated patients, within the following populations: Spontaneously breathing subjects >15 kg (33 lb) when using a canopy; Spontaneously breathing subjects age >6 yrs and >10 kg (22 lb) when using a face mask; and Ventilated subjects age >10 yrs and >10 kg (22 lb). The Q-NRG+ Portable Metabolic Monitors are intended to be used in professional healthcare facilities only. Please read the accompanying full Indication(s) and Safety Information for Q-NRG+.

Designed by Clinicians for Clinicians

Q-NRG+ is a standalone indirect calorimeter for measuring REE in both ventilated and spontaneously breathing patients. Q-NRG+ was designed with the International Multicentric Study for Indirect Calorimetry (ICALIC).2

The goal: develop a new IC device that addresses barriers according to the needs of the clinician.

The conclusion: ICALIC partnered with industry to design the next generation IC technology that is accurate, reliable and easy-to-use.2

Q-NRG+ can be used with ventilated or spontaneously breathing patients.

Q-NRG+: Next Generation IC Technology

FAST. ~10-15 minutes to run test (including warm-up time) and minimal calibration4

ACCURATE. REE within +/- 3% or 36 kcal/day, whichever is greater4

INTUITIVE. Real-time, user-friendly dashboard. Portable and can be used on ventilated and spontaneously breathing patients4

Supported by Evidence and Guidelines

Personalizing the Energy Prescription in the Modern ICU Webinar

On-Demand Webinar on the Role of IC with Paul Wischmeyer

During the 1-hour webinar Personalizing the Energy Prescriptions in the Modern ICU: The Role of Indirect Calorimetry, Paul Wischmeyer M.D., E.D.I.C., FASPEN, FCCM, will

● Describe the international guidelines and clinical evidence regarding the use of indirect calorimetry

● Explain the risks of over/underfeeding and the limitation of predictive equations

● Discuss current ICU case studies, focusing on the role of REE measurement in optimizing nutrition therapy

Warnings

This device measures clinical parameters used to aid diagnosis and it is intended only as an adjunct device in patient assessment. In case of disturbing conditions, the shutdown is allowed because the safety of the device towards patients and operators is not affected, since the final evaluation is performed on the outcome data measured during a complete test. No modification of this device is allowed.

Precautions/Contraindications

Carefully re-check ventilator functionality after connection of the parts. Make sure that the patients cuff pressure is high enough to avoid air leakage. Manipulation of the ventilator circuit may cause leaks that may lower alveolar ventilation. For more information please refer to User’s Manual.

Rx Only: For safe and proper use of products mentioned herein, please refer to the Instructions for Use or Operator's Manual.
