In brief: TPN

Total parenteral nutrition is the complete administration of nutrition through a large vein.
If your doctor(s) are considering this, you should be supported through a group of professionals including your physician, nutritionist, nurse specializing in central venous line care, pharmacist, and lab technician. Delivering TPN to a patient is best delivered through a team approach, including yourself.
