Aminosyn II in Dextrose
The Aminosyn II in 20% Dextrose Injection admixture, obtained upon mixing thoroughly the contents of the two chambers, provides carbohydrate calories and crystalline amino acids to stimulate protein synthesis, to limit protein catabolism, to minimize liver glycogen depletion and to promote wound healing. The infusion of this mixture through a central venous line should be considered to meet protein and calorie requirements for patients requiring prolonged total parenteral nutrition. I.V. lipids may be infused simultaneously to provide adequate calories, if desired.
The Aminosyn II in 10% Dextrose, obtained upon mixing thoroughly the contents of the two chambers, provides a hypocaloric energy intake with amino acids for peripheral vein administration. When administered with intravenous fat emulsion, such admixtures can approximate the usual oral nutritional intake.
