Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) is a means of providing nutrients to patients whom, for whatever reason, are unable to take food orally This book covers the whole range of factors involved in TPN, patient selection and suitability for TPN, contraindications to patients receiving TPN and the practicalities involved such as line selection. It examines the range of treatment options available that are alternatives to TPN. It is also a unique publication in that it considers the patients opinion, body image and lifestyle.
