Hi beanca38,

I think a good start would be to check out some databases - CINAHL, not sure if Pubmed central is another. Type in Total parental nutrition and narrow your seach to what you are specifically looking for.

I am sure you can access these databases through the hospital library or contact pharmacy at the hospital.

Or go into nursing bookshop or state library...whatever and look at GI section - bound to find great sources.

I am out of country but that is where I would start.

Order or locate The Manual of IV Therapeutics by Lynn Diane Philips the 4th edition, they have a wonderful chapter on TPN. There is a table in the chapter listing all the complications by these categories....Mechanical/Technical ....Metabolic....Infection and Nutritional Alterations. The table is on page 743. Also go to your local bookstore and you will find an IV therapy text. A good one will have an entire chapter on the subject. I will mail you a photocopy of the chapter if you like...send private message if interested.
