Lipid injectable emulsions (ILEs) are a dense source of calories and are a source of the essential fatty acids (EFAs), important for cell membrane development and precursors to key modulators involved in cellular pathways of the immune response. In the early 1970s, the ILE approved for use in the United States was a solely soybean oil-based fat emulsion (SOFE) and until recently was the only FDA approved product available in the US market. While very little has changed in the provision of ILEs over the last four decades in the United States, multiple products have come to market in other areas of the world such as Latin America, each with the intent of being an ideal oil source.  With the recent approval of newer ILEs in the US market, opportunities for expanded use of alternative lipid sources have been possible.  This webinar will include a discussion of the use of recently FDA approved ILE products, particularly the mixed-oil based fat emulsion (MOFE) with practical tips from those with experience using the products. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Compare and contrast the various lipid injectable emulsions currently available.
  2. Describe the benefits and challenges in using the newer lipid injectable emulsions.
  3. Determine the appropriate use of newer alternative lipid injectable emulsions in neonatal, pediatric, and adult populations.

    Description
    Parenteral nutrition component shortages are frequent and concerning to the nutrition support practitioner given the limited availability of therapeutic alternatives. Fortunately, during the last decade, several standardized commercially-available parenteral nutrition (SCAPN) products have entered the market. This presentation will cover the types of products available for use in the United States and the evidence regarding use of these products and patient populations to consider during shortages. The presentation will also describe the experience of operationalizing SCAPN in a rapid manner in a large, academic institution, highlighting "things to remember" when implementing use of these products with prescribing and electronic prescribing. The faculty will take a practical approach to presenting this information through the utilization of case presentations. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. List the types of SCAPN available on the U.S. Market
    2. Summarize evidence associated with SCAPN
    3. Identify the challenges associated with implementing SCAPN in an institution 
    4. Discover safe practices for prescribing, dispensing, and administration
