A way of nourishing children through their veins (intravenously) with a solution of vitamins, minerals, protein, glucose and lipids.
When a person receives all of the nutrients needed through a needle in a vein. TPN may be used when the mouth, the stomach, or the bowel are sore from cancer treatment.
a type of nutrition that is administered through intravenous infusion. TPN provides all of the essential nutrients needed.
When the whole diet (i.e. all necessary nutrients) are delivered by injection into a vein. back
TPN or PN for short. Intravenous feeding that provides patients with all essential nutrients when they are unable to adequately absorb nutrients from the gut.
A form of liquid nutrition with all necessary vitamins, minerals and calories given through another route other than by eating. TPN provides nutrition to patients who are unable or unwilling to eat.
Same as Hyperalimentation.
Basic nutritients (carbohydrates, essential fats, proteins, vitamins and trace elements) given intravenously (through a vein), usually via a central venous catheter, that provide enough calories for a patient to survive and grow without any feeding by mouth. This life-saving technique allows a baby with gastroschisis to recieve enough nutrition until he can feed normally (often 3-4 weeks later).
administration of a nutritionally adequate solution through a catheter into the vena cava; used in cases of long-term coma or severe burns or severe gastrointestinal syndromes
intravenous feedings consisting of fluids high in calories and essential nutrients.
A technique in which nutrients are given to a person through an intravenous infusion.
Liquid nutrition containing protein, sugar, fat, vitamins, and minerals that is given to a baby intravenously.
intravenous infusion of nutrients through a catheter placed in a large vein (often near the collar bone)
Providing the body's nutritional needs by a balanced mixture of basic constituents supplied by intravenous infusion.
TPN. A form of nutrition that is delivered into a vein. Total parenteral nutrition does not use the digestive system. It may be given to people who are unable to absorb nutrients through the intestinal tract because of vomiting that won't stop, severe diarrhea, or intestinal disease. It may also be given to those undergoing high-dose chemotherapy or radiation and bone marrow transplantation. It is possible to give all of the protein, calories, vitamins and minerals a person needs using total parenteral nutrition. Also known as hyperalimentation or parenteral nutrition.
see parenteral nutrition.
A feeding system that includes all the nutrients needed by the body and that is introduced into the body intravenously.
Intravenous feeding that provides patients with all essential nutrients when thery're unable to feed themselves. Also called TPN, hyperalimentation or hyperal.
intravenous infusion of all the patient's requirements of nutrients through a fine tube (catheter) placed in a large vein.
children undergoing treatment for cancer sometimes need TPN to help meet their nutritional needs. TPN is a special mixture of glucose, protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals that are given through an intravenous line (IV) into the veins. Many people call this "intravenous feedings."
Used for patients who cannot or should not get their nutrition through eating. TPN may include a combination of sugar and carbohydrates (for energy), proteins (for muscle strength), lipids (fat), electrolytes, and trace elements. An individuals solution may contain all or some of these substances, depending on your condition.
TPN. Intravenous (into a vein) feeding that provides necessary nutrients when a person is unable to eat normally.
(TPN) Providing nutrients to a malnourished patient via a large vein.
Nutrition administered through a large vein in the body because of its high concentration of ingredients, including vitamins and minerals. This type of nutritional procedure is complex and expensive, and usually not appropriate for extremely frail or elderly residents.
An intravenous feeding technique that is capable of supplying sufficient nutrients to maintain a person's normal weight and growth over a prolonged period.
Intravenous (I.V.) feeding that provides patients with essential nutrients when they are too ill to eat normally.
Intravenous feeding involving nutritionally balanced solutions that include proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, delivered into a major vein--usually under the collarbone. TPN can be administered in a hospital setting or through home infusion.
TPN is typically administered through a large vein in the body because of its high concentration of ingredients. Individuals who are unable to eat or who do not receive enough calories, essential vitamins, and minerals from eating can receive enough nutrients from TPN to maintain their weight. This type of nutrition requires a doctor's order.
Total parenteral nutrition (TPN), is the practice of feeding a person intravenously, circumventing the gut. It is normally used following surgery, when feeding by mouth or using the gut is not possible, when a person's digestive system cannot absorb nutrients due to chronic disease, or, alternatively, if a person's nutrient requirement cannot be met by enteral feeding (tube feeding) and supplementation. It has been used for comatose patients, although enteral feeding is usually preferable, and less prone to complications.
