The last Pharm topic is Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)
A good review –
Saunders talks about the topic in Chapter 12, beginning on page 134.
Make sure you review the following topics.
Identify side effects/adverse events related to TPN and intervene as appropriate (e.g., hyperglycemia, fluid imbalance, infection)
Educate client on the need for and use of TPN
Apply knowledge of nursing procedures and psychomotor skills when caring for a client receiving TPN
Apply knowledge of client pathophysiology and mathematics to TPN interventions
Administer parenteral nutrition and evaluate client response (e.g., TPN)
