Alternative Agents & Management

    • The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) does not have recommendations for managing the ammonium molybdate shortage specifically, however, they do have detailed recommendations for managing other trace element shortages online at http://www.nutritioncare.org/News/Parenteral_Nutrition_Trace_Element_Product_Shortage_Considerations/. Key recommendations include: 1. Reserve supplies for neonatal or pediatric patients or other vulnerable groups such as patients with short bowel or malabsorption syndromes. 2. Avoid use of pediatric trace elements for adult patients. 3. Adult trace element products are not recommended for pediatric patients. 4. Consider oral or enteral multivitamin or multimineral products for supplementation if possible. 5. Avoid using trace elements additives in IV fluids. 6. Increase vigilance of signs and symptoms of trace element deficiencies. 7. Purchase only the supply needed, do not stockpile.
