Optimising the delivery of parenteral nutrition in newborn care

Yasmin Milner, William Stagg, Helen McElroy


Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a key component of newborn care, especially for preterm and growth restricted infants. Inadequate nutrition is associated with growth failure and suboptimal development. The 2016 British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) Framework for Practice provided the first UK standards for delivering PN. This articles describes a quality improvement initiative in a neonatal intensive care unit that successfully optimised PN feeding regimens resulting in higher protein and lipid intakes over the first five days of feeding, in line with BAPM recommendations.
