Glucose should be monitored several times a day until stable, and then at least daily.
Intake and output as well as weight should also be monitored daily. Lab tests that are monitored daily when TPN is initiated are cbc, plasma urea, electrolytes including magnesium and phosp, and calcium. Liver function tests, plasma proteins, prothrombin time, plasma and urine osmolality also should be measured.
