Abstract:

Parenteral nutrition is a life-saving modality, but one that also carries risks for potentially life-threatening complications. eomprehensivC management of patients receiving parenteral nutrition includes careful selection of candidates, individualizing formulas to meet patients’ unique needs, monitoring response to therapy, and implementing strategies designed to avoid complications. Measures to mitigate the risk of central line-associated bloodstream infections are particularly important. As with all complex therapies, a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach promotes optimal outcomes.
