Sapphire Training Videos - TPN Infusion
Total Parenteral Nutrition, also known as Parenteral Nutrition or hyperalimentation, is used for patients who are unable to obtain adequate nutrients by oral or enteral routes. TPN solutions supply basic nutrients, including fluids, proteins, carbohydrates, electrolytes, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements directly to the patient's blood stream, bypassing the GI tract. The TPN delivery mode permits high volume delivery of solutions, with optional tapering (ramping). When tapering is used, delivery rate is gradually increased/ decreased (tapered-up/tapered-down) at the beginning and end of the infusion profile.
