TPN weight gain?!?!?!?
I am being admitted to the hospital early next week and I might be getting TPN because of my Crohn's and a possible stomach obstruction. I am 14 years old and weigh 88lbs how much weight will i gain with this?? (also I am not anorexic before i got sick I weighed 113lbs)
Asked by Laurie Phi 2 years ago.
TPN is very customizable depending on a person's needs. If you're in a hospital, then a dietitian will be able to meet with you and, asses you, and then chances are good that the dietitian will write the TPN formula. People can gain weight on TPN, but if they know what they're doing, then your weight gain would be appropriate for your age and body size. Answered by Consuelo Verry 2 years ago.
With my last one I lost 16 pounds in my first 3 months. I didn't get back to be pre pregnancy until i was 34 weeks. I never heard of the iv thing, but my dr never felt i needed it. And I have always had complications (my first one I lost at 17 1/2 weeks) . The best thing I found that worked for me was drinking Lemon aid. And lots of water, I would try looking in to more natural ways to help with morning sickness. And by 5 months you should be over for the most part, but some women don't which i am sorry for the ones that don't. When I was 12 weeks with my son I remember calling the dr crying because in 48hours all I have had to eat was a banana. Wanting to make sure that my baby would be ok. He was very healthy little man. I also heard good things about eating peppermint, that might help. And maybe try some warm milk. Answered by Ginger Rutherford 2 years ago.
I've never seen anyone *gain* weight on TPN. It mainly provides "just enough" nutrition to survive, as they calculate it daily based upon your labwork. That being said, you might actually gain some weight *if* you are more likely to actually absorb some nutrients!! Answered by Dick Bushby 2 years ago.
TPN & Chemotherapy???????????????
Is it possible to have chemotherapy and TPN done through the same line? Like a PICC or Hickman line etc. Do they need to be different catheters, when the other isn't in (obviously they would need to be different if they were running at the same time) Or do they need to like, have a completely different site for...

Is it possible to have chemotherapy and TPN done through the same line? Like a PICC or Hickman line etc. Do they need to be different catheters, when the other isn't in (obviously they would need to be different if they were running at the same time) Or do they need to like, have a completely different site for each? Did this all make sense? Sorry if it doesn't. Thanx. Answered by Elidia Eichstedt 2 years ago.
They can be done through the same line. They can't be run at the same time, but people do get chemo during the day and then have TPN run at night through that same line, for example, or stop the TPN, flush the line, hook up the chemo. I work in pediatric oncology and our patients never get an extra line for TPN. They do a lot of overnight feeds with TPN, unless there is 24-hour chemo running. Answered by Marc Pennie 2 years ago.
What could possibly cause hypoglycemia and hypovolemia in a patient on TPN?
I appreciate your help
Asked by Lezlie Jacaruso 2 years ago.
Tickdher is pretty close with hypoalbuminemia and third spacing, but I would take exception that 'sepsis' is less likey because of the hypoglycemia. In fact, one could infer that said patient is fairly ill(i.e. requiring TPN) and in this setting persistent hypoglycemia and hypovolemia would lead one to think of sepsis or bacteremia as the most likely culprit. Answered by Maud Wygle 2 years ago.
maximum sufferers are genuinely recommended to apply marinol or to chew/consume the mj relatively than smoke. no longer possibly because of the main cancers possibility, yet because of the an infection possibility. First, smoke irritates the lungs and can reason any style of lung infections in the main cancers affected person. 2nd, because of the fact it hasnt been processed, it incorporates micro organism and fungi needless to say. maximum cancers sufferers are genuinely often on a neutropenic food plan which in specific prohibits something that hasnt been processed like clean culmination greens and herbs for that reason. Thc works nevertheless. it works lots extra effectual than the different meds used is a lot much less addictive than the different meds used. Hefty doses of anti biotics and anti fungals are given to the sufferers using genuine mj to stay away from an infection from the unprocessed substance. Answered by Ferne Tello 2 years ago.

Why would sterile water for injection be used in a tPN?
To change it from a peripheral TPN to a central TPN To dilute the dextrose to a desired concentration To increase the volume of the laminar flow To sterilize the solution through a 0.22-micron filter
Asked by Shalonda Shearer 2 years ago.
TPN is a mixture of protein, lipids (fats) and carbohydrates (dextrose) plus electrolytes (NaCl, KCl, KPO4, Mg, P, Ca and more). All of this is very concentrated and can damage the veins during infusion due to the high osmolality. Water is added to dilute the "ingredients" and also to provide water to the patient so they do not become dehydrated and receive adequate water. Answered by Jerrold Oyervides 2 years ago.
Tpn Injection Answered by Necole Delossantos 2 years ago.
It could be to dilute the dextrose and other constituents. Contrentrated electrolytes, proteins, and dextrose can cause injury to to your vasculature or mess up you electrolyte balance. When a solution reaches a certain concentration you can't use a peripheral line as it can injure smaller veins. You can go with a more dilute solution, a bigger vein with higher flow, or both. Most go with both. Answered by Concepcion Lovely 2 years ago.

TPN is not a long term solution in this situation, although yes, some people do live for years on it. Your grandmother has a degenerative, terminal condition (Alzheimer's), and she seems to have reached a point where she cannot swallow food safely. It is a point that families have to make a choice as to whether to prolong a person's life for a few more months or allow them to pass peacefully. I hope your grandmother's doctor has recommended a palliative care and/or hospice consult, to help your family make some tough decisions. Answered by Porsha Mergel 2 years ago.
