Contribution of amino acids as substrates of protein synthesis in the context of parenteral nutrition, when oral or enteral nutrition is impossible, insufficient or contraindicated.

In parenteral nutrition, amino acid infusions must always be associated with adequate calorie intake, for example in the form of carbohydrate solutions.

Dosage AMINOPLASMAL 8 Solution for IV infusion Box of 10 vials of 500 ml

The dosage should be adjusted according to individual amino acid requirements and individual water requirements that depend on the patient's clinical condition (nutritional status and / or degree of N-catabolism induced by the underlying pathology).

Adults and adolescents aged 15 to 17:

Average daily dose:

20 - 40 ml / kg of body weight

≃ 1.0 - 2.0 g amino acids / kg body weight

≃ 1400 - 2800 ml for a patient of 70 kg

Maximum daily dose:

40 ml / kg of body weight

≃ 2.0 g amino acids / kg body weight

≃ 140 g of amino acids for a 70 kg patient

≃ 2800 ml for a 70 kg patient

Maximum infusion rate, respectively:

2 ml / kg of body weight / hour

≃ 0.1 g amino acids / kg body weight / hour

≃ 45 drops / minute for a 70 kg patient

≃ 2.34 ml / minute for a 70 kg patient

Children and adolescents up to 14 years old:

Dosages for this age group, as presented below, are recommended mean values. The exact dosage should be adjusted individually according to age, stage of development and pathology.

Daily dose in children aged 2 to 4:

30 ml / kg of body weight

≃ 1.5 g amino acids / kg body weight

Daily dose in children aged 5 to 13:

20 ml / kg of body weight

≃ 1.0 g amino acids / kg body weight

Maximum infusion rate:

2 ml / kg of body weight / hour

≃ 0.1 g amino acids / kg body weight / hour

In the case of amino acid requirements of 1 g / kg body weight / day or more, special attention should be paid to the water intake limits. In such cases and to avoid water overload, solutions with higher amino acid concentrations should be used.

Administration mode

Intravenous way.

May be administered as long as parenteral nutrition is indicated.

Aminoplasmal 8, solution for infusion, is only one component of parenteral nutrition.

In parenteral nutrition, the intake of amino acids must be combined with a supply of sources of calories, essential fatty acids, electrolytes, vitamins and trace elements.

Against indications

· Hypersensitivity to an amino acid present in the solution.

· Congenital abnormalities of amino acid metabolism.

· Severe circulation with life-threatening conditions (eg shock).

· Hypoxia.

· Metabolic acidosis.

· Advanced liver disease.

· Severe renal insufficiency without possibility of hemofiltration or hemodialysis.

Adverse effects that, however, are not specifically related to the product but to parenteral nutrition in general, may occur, particularly at the beginning of parenteral nutrition. Rare (<1/100, ≥ 1/1000 treated patients):

· Gastrointestinal disorders: nausea, vomiting.

· General disorders: headache, tremor, fever.
