Preterm TPN requirements

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am working on setting up a new NICU in a resource limited setting - we are looking for references for making customised TPN bags for our preterm - as no standardised bags are available here.

Any good resources on this - other than the ESPGHAN enteral feeding guide?

Yes, I meant to ask what guidelines are followed when prescribing the PN for compounding, and also the resources related to compounding itself. What bags are the amino acids, electrolytes being compounded in?

The most recent I have found are the ASPEN guidelines on safe compounding, nothing on preterm PN prescribing.
