PMID:  8302255     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Preterm infants exhibit special nutrient needs that differ substantially from other patient populations. Special characteristics include increased energy and protein requirements that must be addressed to prevent tissue catabolism and support growth. The immaturity of some organ systems may also complicate the administration of nutrition support. This article describes important characteristics of enteral and parenteral nutrition as it applies to the preterm infant.
