Parenteral Nutrition (PN) or intravenous feeding involves intravenously providing nutrition into the body, bypassing the usual process of eating and digestion. The nutritional formulae contain nutrients such as glucose, amino acids, lipids and added vitamins and dietary minerals. It is called total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or total nutrient admixture (TNA) when no significant nutrition is obtained by other routes. It may be called peripheral parenteral nutrition (PPN) when administered through vein access in a limb, rather than through a central vein. Parenteral nutrition is indicated for patients’ unable to intake adequate nutrition orally or enterally, or patients’ with compromised GI track. Parenteral nutrition products include a range of macronutrients such as carbohydrates, amino acids and lipid emulsions, and micronutrients such as vitamins, trace elements, and minerals. Globally rising aging population, increasing customer preference for parenteral nutrition, and increasing cases of preterm births and malnutrition are the major factors driving the global parenteral nutrition market.
