Intravenous nutritional products
A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Intravenous nutritional products are also called parenteral nutrition. They supplement oral food intake. Partial parenteral nutrition provides only part of the patient's daily nutritional requirements. Total parenteral nutrition provides all of the patient's daily requirements. Intravenous nutritional products are given to severely malnourished patients, such as those who are having chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
