Trial of Antioxidant Supplementation in Critically ill Surgical Patients
Shhhhh!!! We wouldn’t want word of this getting out!! The use of Vit E and C helped improve outcome and shorten hospital stay in critically ill surgical patients. Lets see…(the dosages were not noted here) the best quality supplements (which are usually NOT used in clinically studies) would probably cost at the absolute max $50 per month. Most likely this intervention would cost about $20 total for high quality, $10 for all others. And the safety of an intervention like this is unquestionable. So do we think there’ll be a rash of antioxidant supplementation use in the surgical arena?
