In order to determine the intravenous energy and nitrogen intakes required to achieve intrauterine rates of nitrogen accretion and growth, 30 studies were completed in 22 premature infants who were provided with various intakes of amino acids and energy (glucose +/- lipid) by peripheral vein infusion. At constant nitrogen intake, increasing energy intake (as lipid) from 50 to 80 nonprotein kcal/kg/day resulted in significant increases in nitrogen retention and weight gain. Increasing nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
