Nutrition Test 3

  1. What are 2 things that should never go together in the same TPN Bag.

  11. What are the pore sizes of filters used for AA/Dex and TNA TPNs?
    0.22 and 1.2

    Fat particles are too large for the 0.22 micron filters, therfore require 1.2.
  12. 60 year old male with pancreatitisPrealbumin = 6.2 (low)

    TPN = 105% BEE and 1.2 g/kg protein

    BEE = basal energy expenditure.
    this is and underfed patient

    A better TPN would + 150% BEE and 1.5-1.6 g/kg PRO
  13. What is refeeding syndrome?
    Shift of K, Mg, and phos into the cell when a patient is fed after a period of little or no intake?

    can happen with PO, enteral, or TPN, so watch out in case those levels DROP so you can fix them!

    Necessary for proper growth in neonates and peds
  15. What are the 2 major reasons for tapering TPN containing greater than 10 percent DEXTROSE?
    To prevent hyper and hypo glycemia.

    Some people think it is unnecessary, but why take the chance on having problems when it is relatively easy to do and has been a standard of practice for years?
  16. What can be caused by excessive linoleic (omega -6) fatty acids?
    Inflammation and immunosuppression

    Where do we find Omega-6 fatty acids in the course? {soy oil-based} IV Fat Emulsion
  17. What is NPC: N?
    (Dextrose kcal + fat kcal)/ protein in grams

    Non-Protein Calorie to Nitrogen Ratio
  18. What is Positive Nitrogen Balance?
    A goal for nutrition support. Generally requires a 24 hour UUN (urine collection).

    Want anything above zero. Generally 2-4.

    Negative nitrogen balance means the patient is likely catabolic and losing lean tissue. This is bad.

    Can't tell by how the patient feels.
  19. Why is it recommended to infuse PB lipid over 12 hours or less?
    Risk of infection may be increased with a 24 hour infusion.

    Because lipid is most conducive to microbial growth (more so than AA or DEX)

    This recommendation does not apply to three in ones where you mix it all in the same bag.
  20. Which form of injectable iron requires a test dose?
    Iron Dextran

    Observe for 1 hour after the test dose watching for signs of anaphylaxis.

    Don't give it IM

    Not compatible in TPN
  21. Which type of AA formulation is appropriate for most adults?

    Specialty AA's often not cost-effective for most patients, but you should know when they can be useful...
  22. What is a calculation often used for nutritional dosing?
    Adjusted or Estimated LBW

    Nutritional Dosing Weight = uses 20-25% of the difference between Ideal Body Weight and actual Weight if the patient is overweight, NOT 40% as used for aminoglycoside dosing.
  23. What is the main source of non-protein calories in PPN?
    IV Fat emulsion in Peripheral TPN (PPN)
  24. What are 2 IV components that are incompatible with each other?
    Iron dextran and IV fat emulsion
  25. What is the maximum rate of infusion for 20% IV fat emulsion?
    60 ml per hour
  26. What is the maximum rate of infusion for 10% IV fat emulsion?
    125 ml/hr
  27. What is the energy need range for maintenance therapy? (% of basal energy expentiture, BEE)
  28. What is the energy need range for general surgery? (% of basal energy expentiture, BEE)
  29. What is the energy need range for major surgery/sepsis? (% of basal energy expentiture, BEE)
    up to 200%
  30. What is one method to calculate fluid requirements in pediatrics? (LBW "Neons" - use ranges)

    Memorize this!
    100 per kg for the 1st 10 kg + 50 per kg for next 10 kg then 20 per kg after that.
  31. What are the symptoms of generalized deficiency of B vitamins?
    angular fissures and vertical cracks on the lips, shiny smooth tongue
  32. What are the symptoms for zinc deficiency?
    A blistery periorbital rash. (around nose, mouth and anus)
  33. What is the maximum recommended GIR (glucose infusion rate) for adults receiving TPN?
    5 mg/kg/minute

    The acceptable range is generally higher for peds.
  34. What is the mOsm value for AA per 1 gram % final concentration in a TPN?

    For example 5% AA or 50 grams/L = 500 mOsm/L
  35. What is the mOsm value for DEX per 1 gram % final concentration in a TPN?

    Which is most appropriate?
    1. may need up to 2.5g/kg IVFE
    2. NephrAmine or Renamin
    3. Standard AA's
    4 Fluid restr. AA's
    3 or 4

    Standard AAs or Fluid restricted AAs

    BTW ... There was a recent shortage in calcium gluconate.

  44. know the glucose infusion rate equation and peds fluid equation
    memorize these
