Dosage & Administration

  • Adults: 200 – 800ml intravenous per day.
  • Children: 0.20 – 0.25gm of nitrogen/ kg body weight.
  • Drip rate: 15 — 20 drops initially followed by 30-40 drops per minute.

Recommended energy requirements

Recommended simultaneous calorie supply is 150-200cal./gm of Nitrogen. This will prevent the amino acids from being diverted towards meeting the energy requirement. To meet the energy requirement either 5% or 10% dextrose can be infused using Y Cannula.


Signs of intolerance and increased renal losses resulting in amino acid disequilibrium are possible if infusion rate is too rapid.
