Abstract The computer program PEDINFUS, first described in 1991, has been fundamentally revised and further developed. The area of application has been considerably widened as additive parenteral nutrition has been included and the group of newborn and preterm infants has been taken into account. Consequently, the program can be used for children of all age groups. In addition, the program has a graphical user interface and can be used on several hardware platforms. The flexibility of the program has also been increased to a considerable degree. Now the nutrient amounts per kilogram per day, the limits of the laboratory values, the combination of enteral food and infusion solutions, and the already drawn-up infusion plans can be changed at liberty. Considerably more matters of clinical interest accompanying parenteral nutrition have been integrated in the program. Further plausibility controls have also been introduced to achieve greater certainty in the calculation of the infusion solutions. In consequence, the preconditions for ensuring and controlling the quality of infusion therapy regimens can be established on an improved level.
