Abstract

TPN is an essential therapy for some patients. Unfortunately it is not without problems. These related to both access and subsequent administration and formulation of nutrient infusions. These different aspects of TPN administration have been considered, and the advice given is based on experience gained in this unit over the past ten years. Clearly ideas and practices will vary from unit to unit but, within those constraints, consistency of policy and protocol will permit optimal use of this therapy. It has been argued that satisfactory care is not dependent on either a specialised team or a full-time nurse. Undoubtedly, however, the greatest weight of evidence confirms that a nutrition team will reduce complications and prescribe more appropiate and cost effective therapy.
