# How do you calculate TPN?

## How do you calculate TPN?

Total parenteral nutrition calculations

1. Dextrose% X 50.
2. Amino Acid% X 100.
3. All electrolytes combined in mEq/L X 2.
4. Total = TPN Osmolarity.

## What is Clinisol TPN?

Clinisol Description 15% Clinisol – sulfite-free (Amino Acid) Injection Pharmacy Bulk Package is a sterile, clear, nonpyrogenic, hypertonic solution of essential and nonessential amino acids. A Pharmacy Bulk Package is a container of a sterile preparation for parenteral use that contains many single doses.

How do you calculate kcal in TPN?

To determine kcalories supplied by lipid, multiply the volume of 10% lipid (in ml) by 1.1; multiply the volume of 20% lipid (in ml) by 2.0. If lipids are not given daily, divide total kcalories supplied by fat in one week by 7 to get an estimate of the average fat kcalories per day.

How do you calculate TPN osmolality?

To calculate solution osmolarity:

1. multiply grams of dextrose per liter by 5.
2. multiply grams of protein per liter by 10.
4. add 300 to 400 to the answer from “c”. (Vitamins and minerals contribute about 300 to 400 mOsm/L.)

### What is Travasol used for?

TRAVASOL is indicated as a source of amino acids for patients requiring parenteral nutrition when oral or enteral nutrition is not possible, insufficient, or contraindicated. TRAVASOL may be used to treat negative nitrogen balance in patients.

### How much clinisol do you give a patient?

In unstressed adult patients with no unusual nitrogen losses, a minimum dosage of 0.1 gram nitrogen (4.2 mL of 15% CLINISOL – sulfite-free (Amino Acid) Injection Pharmacy Bulk Package) plus 4.4 grams (15 calories) of dextrose/fat emulsion per kilogram of body weight per day is required to achieve nitrogen balance and weight stability.

What is a total parenteral nutrition calculator?

About This Calculator This total parenteral nutrition calculator provides an empiric dose for the macronutrients included in a TPN formulation. In addition to providing an initial recommended dose, you may alter the contents of each macronutrient while maintaining a specified daily caloric requirement.

#### What is clinisol sulfite-free injection?

General. The administration of 15% Clinisol – sulfite-free (Amino Acid) Injection Pharmacy Bulk Package as part of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) with large volumes of hyperosmotic fluids requires periodic monitoring of the patient for signs of hyperosmolarity, hyperglycemia, glycosuria and hypertriglyceridemia.
