Intravenous fat emulsions (1, 2, and 3 g/kg) were administered over 15 hr to 20 appropriate for gestational age premature infants with physiologic hyperbilirubinemia to determine the effect of fat infusions on the serum free fatty acid:albumin molar ratio (F/A) and on unbound bilirubin. Significant increases (p less than 0.05) in F/A occurred with each increase in lipid dose in infants less than 30 wk gestation, but not in infants greater than or equal to 30 wk gestation. There was a direct… CONTINUE READING
