Sorensen al. EuroOOPS: an international, multicentre study to implement nutritional risk screening and evaluate clinical outcome. Clin Nutr 2008;27:340-9.


Of the 5,051 study patients, 32.6% were defined as 'at-risk' by NRS-2002. 'At-risk' patients had more complications, higher mortality and longer lengths of stay than 'not at-risk' patients and these variables were significantly related to components of NRS-2002, also when adjusted for confounders.
