Calcium Chloride and Sodium Phosphate in Neonatal Parenteral Nutrition Containing TrophAmine
Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, 06/20/2012
Migaki EA et al. – The data can provide a guide for compounding neonatal parenteral nutrition (PN) solutions containing TrophAmine, concentrations of calcium chloride (CaCl), and sodium phosphate (NaPhos). More studies are needed to determine the long–term effects of substituting CaCl for CaGlu in PN solutions for neonates. Substituting CaCl and NaPhos for CaGlu and potassium phosphate (KPhos) significantly decreases aluminum (Al) concentrations in PN and potential Al exposure of neonatal patients.
