Table 3 Comparison of the values for measured (mREE) and predictive (pREE) resting energy expenditure in five patients having severe amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

From: Predictive equations over-estimate the resting energy expenditure in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients who are dependent on invasive ventilation support

Equation mREE (kcal/d) pREE (kcal/d) Difference between medians (95% confidence interval of the difference)
Harris Benedict [24] 1060 (960-1480) 1580 (1190-2020) 585* (425-760)
WHO/FAO/UNU [25] 1060 (960-1480) 1656 (1374-2039) 590* (472-780)
Mifflin-St Jeor [28] 1060 (960-1480) 1557 (1399-1909) 538* (439-688)
Owen [26, 27] 1060 (960-1480) 1726 (1183-1879) 566* (414-691)
Fleisch [29] 1060 (960-1480) 1630 (1210-1938) 567* (417-727)
  1. REE was measured by the use of indirect calorimetry on 13 occasions.
  2. Values are median (range) or difference between medians (95% confidence interval of the difference). *P < 0.01 (Wilcoxon signed ranks test)
