Total Parenteral Nutrition

TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition)

In consultation with our team of clinical pharmacists, Registered Dieticians, our trained Registered Nursing staff and your physician, Total Parenteral Nutrition, or TPN is administered when the patient's gastrointestinal tract is nonfunctional, has a disorder requiring complete bowel rest, or because their absorptive capacity is impaired. A solution containing electrolytes, glucose, essential vitamins, minerals and proteins are customized to the individual patient's requirement until normal nutrition can be resumed.

This program is administered with instruction from your primary physician.
