Fluid and electrolytes are difficult to manage and understand because so many factors affect these results. This discussion will help the pharmacist: 1. Estimate fluid needs 2. List laboratory values needed to manage parenteral nutrition (PN) 3. Discuss Refeeding Syndrome 4. Describe adjustments to parenteral nutrition therapy to correct abnormal lab values The emphasis of this discussion will be the focus on the big picture rather than the number reported by the lab and a more practical approach to interpretation of laboratory values. A comprehensive look at the patient will help the clinician make a better decision when deciding whether or not to change therapies based on lab results.
