Effect of fat infusions on platelet concentration in premature infants

Effect of fat infusions on platelet concentration in premature infants

Jpen. Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition 14(2): 165-168

Critically ill premature infants often require lipid emulsions with parenteral nutrition until enteral feedings can be safely initiated. Because thrombocytopenia has been listed as a potential side effect of fat emulsions, we examined the effect of varying doses of intravenous fat infusions on platelet concentrations in premature infants. An initial validation study demonstrated no artifactual effect of fat infusions on the electronic cell counter method of platelet enumeration. We observed no adverse effect of fat emulsions administered at doses of 0.8 to 3.3 g/kg/day on platelet concentration either during short-term (48 hr) or long-term study periods (4 weeks).
