Complications of TPN

1The two most common complications of TPN are:
Infection and thrombosis
Infection and mechanical
Infection and refeeding syndrome
None of the above

2Early, anticipated complications of TPN include all of the following except:
Volume overload
Hyperglycemia
Cholestasis
Acidosis

3Electrolyte disorders with TPN are most often due to
The PN solution itself
Renal dysfunction
Rise in serum insulin
An underlying cause

4Too rapid replacement of phosphate may result in:
Hyponatremia
Hypokalemia
Hypocalcemia
Hypoparathyroidism

5Hypokalemia is often caused by
Vomiting
Fistulas
Both A and B
Neither A or B

6Fluid status is most closely associated with which serum electrolyte?
Potassium
Sodium
Magnesium
Phosphate

7Refeeding syndrome is associated with decreased serum levels of all of the following electrolytes EXCEPT:
Potassium
Sodium
Magnesium
Phosphate
