May I ask whether anyone has experience with a prolonged hanging time of a parenteral nutrition (PN) bag (incl lipids) of up to 48h? We are probably changing our PN regimen into an all-in-one bag. Since the bag contains >400 mL, it would suffice for most premature infants for 2 days. One strategy could thus be to prolong hang time from 24h to 48h to cut PN costs by half. A recent Australian study (attached) also suggests this would be a feasible approach: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23320598 Since our pharmacy will do all additions to the bag in an aseptic env

The product that we use is called "FloraBaby ®". At this point, the RNs receive a jar per baby, and on the benchtop where they do regular medication preparation, they place the jar on a paper towel, don sterile gloves, measure out the 0.5 g of powder, and mix it once daily with the baby's feed, then recap the jar & throw out the gloves and paper. That's it. Does anyone have a better idea on how to deal with live organisms?
