Review of Micronutrients in Parenteral Nutrition for the NICU Population
A recent review of macronutrients in parenteral nutrition (PN) in the NICU population summarized the carbohydrate, protein, and fat nutrients in PN.1 The purpose of this article is to review the other nutrients in PN that are important for growth and homeostasis including minerals or electrolytes, vitamins, and trace elements. Although the macronutrients contribute more dramatically to adequate nutrition and growth, the other components in PN have significant impact on use of macronutrients as well as targeted organ and cellular function.
