OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the difference in nutrient intakes and biochemical responses in newborn infants <33 weeks gestation who received standardized versus individualized total parenteral nutrition (TPN) regimes. METHOD: Comparison of nutrient intakes and daily biochemical responses in newborn infants <33 weeks gestation who received standardized regime versus those who received individualized TPN regimes from day 2 to day 7 of life. RESULTS: Twenty-seven infants in the standardized TPN group and 31 infants in the individualized TPN group were compared. There were no statistically significant differences (P > 0.05) between the two groups in gestation, birthweight, Clinical Risk Index for Babies scores, daily TPN volume intake and biochemical responses. Infants in the standardized TPN group received less sodium (P < 0.01) and no potassium on day 2 as required, more protein (P < 0.02) every day, and more calcium and phosphate (P < 0.02 from day 4). CONCLUSION: There were no significant clinical and statistical differences in biochemical responses in newborn infants <33 weeks gestation who received standardized versus individualized TPN regimes during the first week of life. The economic cost of TPN provision using standardized TPN formulation was approximately 30% lower.
