As an integral component of parenteral nutrition (PN), lipid injectable emulsions (ILEs) are not only a dense source of calories but are also a source of essential fatty acids (EFAs), important for cell membrane development and precursors to key modulators involved in cellular pathways of the immune response. As new products are developed and approved for use, it is imperative for clinicians to understand the indications for each type of ILE and potential outcomes in a variety of patient populations. Join ASPEN for this one of a kind webinar that will begin with a focus on the importance of ILEs in health and disease and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indications for all currently available formulations. After you have built your foundation of knowledge on ILEs, you will have the opportunity to hear from your colleagues who will discuss their experiences using ILEs in a variety of patient populations. You will not want to miss the opportunity to enhance your knowledge on ILEs to better care for your patients.
List the injectable lipid emulsion products available in the United States and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved indications for use
Identify patients who may potentially benefit from PN with an ILE formulation that contains fish oil (ω-3)
Describe the potential impact that conversion to 4-oil lipid emulsion can have on long term HPN patients who are exhibiting early signs of parenteral nutrition-associated liver disease (PNALD).
Evaluate changes observed in home PN population of patients transitioned to SMOFlipids over a twelve-month period
Review safety and efficacy of four-oil ILE over various treatment durations and examine adverse events and their likelihood of correlation to four-oil ILE
Describe how transitioning from SO ILE to Smoflipid ILE can impact bilirubin levels and EFA profile in pediatric intestinal failure patients
