Dose of intravenous lipids and rate of bacterial clearance in preterm infants with blood stream infections

Intravenous lipid emulsion (IVLE) is an integral part of the total parenteral nutrition (TPN) regimen in neonates. The use of IVLE during sepsis is the subject of controversy because it may interfere with phagocytosis of microbes by macrophages and may lead to significant hypertriglyceridemia. This paper aims to study the rate of clearance of bacteria in… CONTINUE READING
