Background & aims: Hypophosphatemia (HypoP) is associated with organ dysfunction and mortality. Despite its potential severe consequences, HypoP remains poorly characterized in terms of real prevalence and timing of onset. The primary objective was to determine the prevalence of HypoP defined as blood phosphate <0.8 and < 0.65 mmol/l on one particular day at international level.
