What percent of dextrose solution is appropriate for TPN solution? 20%?
I understand that you hang Dextrose 10% if there are any interuptions in running the TPN to prevent hypoglycemia. Also, should TPN be delivered into a large peripheral vein as opposed to centrally? If so, Why? Finally, TPN is meant for long term therapy, correct?
Thank you for helping. I just don't feel clear on the details of TPN.
