Parenteral Nutrition and Intestinal Failure. The aforementioned strategies are important components of SBS management, especially for milder cases.

Parenteral Nutrition and Intestinal Failure

However, for the majority of patients with severe SBS, HPN is the cornerstone of therapy. Patients who require long-term PN cannot be kept in hospital indefinitely, and thus transition to HPN when they are clinically stable. There are four typical settings in which HPN is administered: IF due to surgical complications in the cool-down period prior to subsequent surgical intervention; IF due to cancer, where life expectancy is otherwise beyond that when death would occur from lack of nutrition (typically 3 months or greater); SBS following bowel resection where PN may be continued indefinitely or eventually weaned; and Type 3 IF due to miscellaneous causes such as dysmotility.

There is significant global variation in the indications for HPN. In the UK, the main indications are Crohn’s disease, intestinal ischemia, and surgical complications [3]. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition - Parenteral trace element provision: recent clinical research and practical conclusions. Top of page Introduction In human physiology, inorganic elements that are found in low concentrations in body tissues and fluids are generally termed as trace elements.1 For nine trace elements, at least one important physiological function in human metabolism is known.

These trace elements are ranked as essential micronutrients and should be regularly consumed through foods and/or supplements. Artificial nutrition for patients unable to orally consume sufficient food must provide all physiologically essential macronutrients and micronutrients to avoid symptoms of deficiency and to prevent further aggravation of the underlying disease.

The goal of the present review was to compile recent clinically relevant scientific evidence, with respect to quality and quantity of parenteral trace element provision, and to draw conclusions for clinical practice when treating adult patients in need of parenteral nutrition (PN).

ESPGHAN Committee on Nutrition Position Paper. Intravenous L... : Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. What Is Known * There is evidence that intravenous lipid emulsions (ILE) play a role in the pathogenesis of cholestasis and parenteral nutrition–associated liver disease. * A number of trials have suggested that novel fish oil–containing ILE could have a beneficial effect on cholestasis and parenteral nutrition–associated liver disease.

What Is New * The present systematic review identified 23 randomized controlled trials, which evaluated the effect of different ILEs on cholestasis. * Meta-analysis showed no differences in the rate of cholestasis or bilirubin levels associated with short-term use of different ILE formulations in preterm infants, neonates, and children. * Although quality data are lacking there is some evidence that the use of multicomponent fish oil–containing ILE may contribute to a decrease in total bilirubin levels in children with intestinal failure on prolonged parenteral nutrition.

This process includes safe and effective management of all medical devices and equipment used in the delivery of PN, safe administration of medications in conjunction with PN therapy, and optimal care of vascular access devices. Medical devices and equipment Vascular access Reliable vascular access is essential for safe and effective delivery of PN. A wide array of VADs are available, but some are better suited to PN delivery than others. Despite their essential role in PN administration, VADs are a leading cause of serious adverse complications related to PN therapy, in particular, central line–associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI).
