yes - hyperkalemia & hypoglycemia which is due to too much insulin in the bag. That is the only time we will have a bag removed & remade. All other changes can be done peripherally & incorporated into the next day's solution.apma77 said:other than cost, is there any other reason to change to d10?
The thing I find ironic is when people stop TPN because the patient is NPO for surgery.
Yep - DEHP free tubing. Probably not used so much in the OR, but common when a continuous propofol drip is used in the ICU & very, very common in the PICU or NICU.Gator05 said:...Propofol tubing?
Mostly its the labor which is so expensive. The major monetary component is the lipid (if its a 3-in-1) or the amino acid, but this can be a hidden cost since these costs are usually bundled into the the fluid contract the hospital has.Mapleson D said:Hey sdn,
Why is TPN so expensive? It sounds like you're saying the actual materials are expensive, not just the expertise and time needed to make it. Do you know why?
