Asked the pharmacist in charge of TPN at the Karolinska hospital pharmacy about this topic.

The computer-aided mixing of the various components, does not take osmolarity into account... at all. In other words, we do not have osmolarity limits and we do not know about the osmolarity in our TPN solutions...

Clearly, we could learn something here, will follow further posts in this thread with great interest!

Dear all

I agree with Stefan that either using central or peripheral lines, we don't "care" about osmolarity of TPN; however, and this is our policy in casablanca, we manage to keep that, as I was learned by my instructors in France during my training, between 280-320 mosmol/l.This seems to fit the renal capacity at this age.

Hope this help you.

Best regards
