Setting up TPN ready for connection
For those of you that follow our family and Charlie's journey will know he is 15hrs Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) dependent, this is his IV nutrition that he needs on a daily basis to keep him hydrated and receive all the nutrients his body needs to grow and developed. It is highly important that I follow a Aseptic technique using practices and procedures to prevent contamination from pathogens. It involves me applying the strictest rules to minimize the risk of a central line sepsis infection. I’ve made a short video to show you the process in which I have to set up his TPN and the daily routine. My aim to raise the awareness of TPN and why it is important for family’s like us when making plans Everything has to be arranged around Charlie and his TPN. 💜 without TPN he wouldn’t be here today, we as a nation are blessed to have the NHS ❤️
