What is Intradialytic Parenteral Nutrition (IDPN)?

0

IDPN is the administration of a nutrient solution directly into the bloodstream while a patient is receiving hemodialysis. The solution is made up of amino acids, dextrose, and, when appropriate, lipids to provide both protein and calories in an attempt to meet the patient’s weekly nutritional needs. IDPN therapy is administered at a dialysis clinic.
