Ventilator-dependent:
 IJEE(v) = 1784 - 11(A)+ 5(W)+244 (G) + 239(T) + 804(B)    2002 version
 IJEE(v) = 1925 – 10(A) + 5(W) +281 (G) +292 (T) +851 (B)   1992 version
Spontaneously Breathing:
IJEE(s) = 629 - 11 (A) + 25 (W) - 609 (O) 
IJEE = kcal/day; A = age (yrs); W = actual wt(kg); G = gender(male=1, female=0); T = trauma, B = burn, O=obesity( if present=1, absent=0)
