c. Total calories: 2,847.5 kcal
11. Calculate the following: 1,200 ml of 70% CHO; 1,000 ml of 8.5 % protein; and 20%
lipids (in 500 ml bag) given QOD to a 74 kg person.
a. Protein (grams): 1000 ml x 0.085 Amino Acids = 85 g
b. Total NPC (average/day): 1200 ml x 0.70 CHO= 840g x 3.4 = 2856+500 = 3,356
kcals
c. Total calories: 85 g aa x 4 = 340 + 3356 = 3 696 kcal
d. Fat load: 250 x 0.2 = 50 g /day, 50/74 = 0.68 g/kg/day
e. CHO load: 840,000/74/1440= 7.9 mg/kg/min
f. What is the max amount of CHO for this person: 6.0 = x/74/1440, x = 639 g CHO
12. MC is starting on TPN (wt. 61 kg). You determined his needs to be 2,650 kcals/day and
protein needs at 91 grams. He will get 10% lipids 3 times/week. Write a TPN order using
60% dextrose and 8.5% AA (include protein calories) to meet his needs:

a. Volume CHO (60%): 2650-364 kcal pro-236 kcal fat = 2050 kcal CHO/3.4 =
603/0.60 = 1,005 ml
b. Volume Pro (8.5%): 91 g/ 0.085= 1,071 ml
c. Average daily lipid calories: 550 x 3 / 7 = 236 kcal
d. Fat load: 50 g x 3/ 7 = 21 g/day / 6kg = 0.35 g/kg/day
e. CHO load: 603,000 mg/ 61 kg/ 1440 = 6.9 mg/kg/min
13. Design a TPN formula to provide 1840 calories and 65 grams of protein for a 59 kg
person. Remember the minimum lipid requirements. Make sure the person receives
adequate fluid.
Protein: 65 x 0.085 = 765 ml, 65 x 4 = 260 kcal
CHO: (load = 3.5) 3.5/1000 x 59 x 1440 = 297 g, 297 x 3.4 = 1,010 kcal
Lipid: 500 x 0.1 = 50 g, 50 x 11 = 550 kcal

14. JT is receiving both Procalamine and Jevity 1.0. He is tolerating Jevity at only 40 ml/hour
which doesnt meet his protein needs of 90 grams. How much Procalamine does he need
and at what rate over 24 hours to meet his total protein needs?
a. Procalamine (grams protein): 40 ml/hr x 24 = 960 ml jevity 10.4 g/237 x 960 ml =
42 g protein jevity 90-42 = 48 g
b. Procalamine (volume): 29 g/1000 ml = 0.029 g/ml, 48g/ 0.029 =1655 ml
c. Rate of Procalamine: 1,655/24 = 69 ml/hr
d. Kcals provided by Jevity: 960 x 1.06= 1,018 kcal

15. Find a product that will provide 1,200 calories and >60 grams pro in less than 1,000 ml
and osmolality less than 600 mOsm. How much must be delivered?
Peptamen AF: 1,200 kcal
1000 ml = 1200 kcal = 76 g protein
16. Calculate the following for Jevity1.5 half strength (diluted in equal wateri.e. of the
total volume is added water) at 83 ml/hour over 22 hours.

b. Protein: 15.1 g/ 237 ml x 913 ml= 58 g
c. Total volume: 1,826 ml
d. Free fluid from Jevity 1.5: 180/ 237 x 913= 693 ml
e. Total free fluid provided (added water plus Jevity free fluid): 693+913=1606 ml

3,100 mls total fluid ( 100 mls) for an 89 kg person. Complete the table below.
Protein: 112/0.1 = 1,120 ml, 112 x 4 = 448 kcal
CHO: (load: 4) 4 mg x 89 x 1440/1000 = 513 g, 513 x 3.4 = 1743 kcal, 513 x 0.4 g =
