Parenteral Nutrition for Nutritionists ( National Nutrition Week )

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a method of nutrition assistance that has the potential to save lives, but it should only be used on patients for whom enteral feeding is risky, ineffective, or has failed. Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or peripheral parenteral nutrition (PPN) are two terms that are frequently used to describe this treatment, depending on which vein is utilized (PPN). Therefore, it is crucial to think carefully about who, when, and how this type of dietary support should be provided. A multidisciplinary nutrition team should start PN and closely manage it to reduce any potentially fatal consequences.
