Adjustment TPN


Recommended Posts

We must calculate daily protein, lipids & calories per kg and adjust accordingly to limit protein & lipid intake to 3.5g/kg/d in view of recent literature questioning the worse impact of higher intakes. This usually correspond well to enteral intake of 25%/50%/75% and reduce TPN at similar rates probably & practically. We generally stop TPN once >100 ml/kg/d enteral intake is reached.

We calculate the total protein and lipids at orally route and get a balance according to the specific requirements of each baby with parenteral nutrition. At we advance in enteral feedings we reduce the amount in PN.

HELLO GROUP, I TALK ABOUT WHAT WE DO,
 FORTIFIED HUMAN MILK PROVIDES APPROXIMATELY 0.5 A 0.8 G OF PROTEIN EVERY 20ML,
 WE TRY TO LOWER THE PROTEINS OF THE NPT SO THAT THE TOTAL CONTRIBUTION 
OF PROTEINS BETWEEN ORAL VIA AND NPT DOES NOT ADD MORE THAN 4MG, THE SAME
 WITH THE FLOW OF GLUCOSE AND LIPIDS, WE SUSPEND NPT WHEN THEY REACH 100ML/KG 
THROUGH THE ORAL ROUTE. AND WE COMPLETE THE CONTRIBUTION WITH 
A PHP OF GLUCOSATE.

Hi Kedar, would you mind highlighting the literature you refer to. I am curious as we tend to continue TPN until we reach 120ml/kg of enteral feed.

Many thanks
