Total Parenteral Nutrition

First pioneered by Pennsylvania doctor Stanley J. Dudrick in the 1960s Total Parenteral Nutrition, or TPN, has since saved hundreds of thousands of lives all over the world.

Designed for patients who cannot, or should not, ingest solid or liquid foodstuffs. TPN provides all the nutritional requirements for patients suffering from certain pediatric GI disorders, short bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, bowel obstructions, and many other conditions.

An early form of personalised medicine TPN formulations are patient specific, designed with the height, weight, age, and nutritional requirements of an individual person in mind. They contain all the macronutrients; carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids, the patient needs to stay healthy while supplying them with the right balance of fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, and trace minerals.

Carolina IV Solutions provides patient specific TPN solutions that address the needs of individual patients and their physicians.
