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+: 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
Energy needs in critically ill patients are dynamic.1 Using indirect calorimetry throughout the ICU stay can detect a variability in a patient’s REE.1
Predictive equations are accurate for no more than 50% of ICU patients.5 ASPEN guidelines suggest the use of IC to accurately measure a patients’ energy needs.3
Q-NRG+ enables accurate individualized metabolic measurements at the point of care.
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

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.
• 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.
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.
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.
