Introduction: The importance of blood ammonia detection and nonhepatic hyperammonemia (NHH) in the treatment and prognosis of patients has been neglected clinically. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of NHH in intensive care unit adults in Heilongjiang province, China. To solve this problem, we designed a provincial-level survey of severe adult NHH, including its etiology, risk factors, incidence, prognosis, and treatment strategies. Methods: The present study refers to a cross-sectional survey of the whole province, involving five cities in Heilongjiang province. All patients who met the inclusion criteria were eligible to apply to participate in the study, which included baseline demographics, clinical presentation, and follow-up related to diagnosis and treatment. Results: The total number of patients to be recruited in this study was estimated to reach 759. All patients who met the inclusion criteria were eligible to apply to participate in the study, which included baseline demographics, clinical presentation, and follow-up related to diagnosis and treatment. Conclusion: This study is expected to provide a theoretical basis for the development of more scientific and standardized NHH diagnosis and treatment methods. Ethics and Dissemination: Ethical approval was obtained from the ethics committee of The Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University (registration number KY2019-184). The findings of this review will be communicated through peer-reviewed publications and scientific presentations. Trial Registration Number: ChiCTR1900026632.
