The NUTRIC score (Nutrition Risk in the Critically Ill) is a method designed to calculate the risk of critically ill patients developing adverse conditions that is likely be improved by optimal nutritional therapy. The objective of this study is to validate the NUTRIC score for aggressive nutrition therapy and identify critically ill patients that are most likely to benefit from macronutrients with an aim to improving mortality rate. A logistic model is proposed to identify the relationship between the observed parameters of NUTRIC score like age, APACHE II score, SOFA score and number of co-morbidities using statistical methods and further authenticate it. The relationship between these parameters is often aggravated in the ICU due to the hypermetabolic nature of critical illness. This care can be extended by use of IoT devices which may be wearable for monitoring patients health. It will help not only to keep track patient's health, but to improve how the physicians deliver care as well. New technology innovations can be leveraged in nutritional health care context to monitor patients remotely. © 2018 Association for Computing Machinery.
