Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)

Key information about dietary intake that is not supplemented by any other forms of feeding.

Parenteral feeding is the intravenous administration of nutrients and should be considered for all patients who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition, have a non-functioning gastrointestinal (GI) tract or an inaccessible gastrointestinal (GI) tract that prevents enteral feeding. It can also be used for comatose patients.

This short course will therefore look at the following key topics when considering parenteral nutrition:

  • Overview
  • Access and administration
  • Feed preparations
