Enteral Omega3 Fat Supplementation

Omega-3 fats are composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids, in which the first double bond 3 carbon atoms are located away from the methyl end of the fatty acid chain. The fatty acids found in fish oil, called eicosapentanoic and docosahexaenoic, are precursors of prostaglandins and thromboxanes that antagonize the prothrombotic effects of similar compounds derived from linoleic acid. In humans, when infused, they reduce the production of proinflamma-tory cytokines from stimulated mononuclear cells. They potentially have anti-inflammatory effects and have been shown in controlled trials to benefit patients with ARDS.
