TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition)

If your child is unable to eat or digest enough food to nourish her body and give her energy, the doctor might decide that she needs Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN). TPN is a liquid given by IV (by vein).

TPN at home

Soon your child will be discharged from the hospital. Since she is still unable to eat or digest enough food to nourish her body and give her energy, the doctor may order Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) for your child to receive at home.
