Interpreting the label on PN bags
- Red box shows data to be entered
- Add up the numbers in the blue boxes to approximate the daily mEq/kg/day electrolytes being delivered.
- The green box shows total calories in the order volume, not kcal/kg. This is generally not clinically useful, so the script calculates kcal/kg/day instead.
- The purple box shows the osmolarity of the PN solution, and is probably more accurate than the estimation used by the script.
