Abstract The use of parenteral nutrition is becoming more widespread. The need for individualized parenteral nutrition solutions in pediatric patients makes the ordering and preparation of these solutions more complex and error-prone. A computer program is described which performs comprehensive management of parenteral nutrition by assisting in accurately ordering and preparing parenteral nutrition solutions. It also performs extensive error-checking and provides additional nutritional information. Data base management is also a feature which permits future large-scale analysis of parenteral nutrition data for research purposes. This program, designed to run on a personal computer, is very comprehensive, yet flexible and user-friendly.
