Dietitian intervention and hyperglycemia during the use of total parenteral nutrition in an acute care setting
by Cox, Mary Beth, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 44; 1493005
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the impact that registered dietitian (RD) intervention has on the incidence of hyperglycemia in hospitalized patients receiving total parenteral nutrition (TPN).

Data were collected via chart reviews for 103 subjects on TPN at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian within the time frame of June 30, 2009, to August 30, 2009.

Results of a chi square analysis showed a significant difference in patients receiving TPN appropriately versus patients receiving TPN inappropriately based on recommendations made by registered dietitians. Additionally, a one sample t-test showed there was a significant difference in total Calories recommended by registered dietitians for patients versus the total Calories provided in a TPN solution to patients. However, in patients whose TPN therapy was recommended by registered dietitians regarding appropriate use and total Calories provided there was no difference in the incidence of hyperglycemia.
