At present, various interpretations of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms are utilized in research, and it has been recognized that establishing standardized guidelines for reporting these symptoms is a crucial area of investigation (doi: 10.1186/s13054-020-02889-4).

In order to enhance comparability across studies, it is necessary to reach a consensus on the essential components that should be monitored on a daily basis to assess GI function. Therefore, our objective is to perform a modified Delphi consensus process to identify and establish a core set of parameters that must be reported in upcoming clinical trials. This study is ESICM endorsed.
