The quantitative transperitoneal absorption of a fat emulsion: implications for intraperitoneal nutrition

Journal of Pediatric Surgery

Intraperitoneal (IP) administration of nutrients would be an attractive alternative to intravenous nutrition since it eliminates intravascular complications. If glucose alone were used as the nonprotein calorie source, associated fluid shifts might not be well tolerated by the patient. A fat emulsion does not have osmotic properties and thus might be incorporated into a program of IP nutrition as a calorie source. Transperitoneal absorption of a commercial fat emulsion (Liposyn 10%, Abbott Laboratories, N Chicago, IL) was studied in 12 beagle puppies divided into two groups. One group received 2.5 gm/kg of fat and the other group received a similar volume of 3.5% crystalline amino acids and 5% glucose in one IP dose. In the first group, the serum triglyceride (TG) increased three fold from 61 +/- 25 mg% to 185 +/- 61 mg% at 15 minutes and then decreased slowly while remaining significantly elevated (p less than 0.05) at 4 hours. 1.94 +/- 0.20 gm/kg of TG were absorbed from the peritoneal cavity over 4 hours. Concommitant IP administration of amino acids and glucose did not affect that absorption. Radiolabeled amino acids and glucose instilled IP were demonstrated in the blood immediately after administration and their absorptio...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
