Glucose infusion needs to be calculated while giving feeding and can be done by the same formula Glucose infusion rate while on feeding (mg/kg/min) = [IV rate (ml/hr) x Dextrose conc (g/dl) x.0167 / wt (kg)] + [Feed rate (ml/hr) x Dextrose conc* (g/dl) x.0167 / wt (kg) Enter the infant's weight, then specify the various inputs - glucose percentage and flow rate for one or two infusions, and type of milk and hourly milk volumes, and use of polycal (a sugar) in terms of specifying how many grams are added to each 100 ml of milk. Assumptions: Breast milk sugar content 7.1 g / 100 ml Plasma glucose concentration was held constant at 80 mg/dL by a variable rate infusion of 20% dextrose adjusted every 5 min using the negative feedback principle described by DeFronzo et al. (24). The target plasma glucose of 80 mg/dL was selected because during lactation, fasting glucose is lower than in formula-feeding women (6, 25) dextrose percentage and flow rate for one or two infusions ; type of milk and hourly milk volumes ; added carbohydrate (if any) in grams per 100 ml of milk. Assumptions: Breast milk sugar content 7.1 g / 100 ml Term formula sugar content 7.1 g / 100 ml Pre-term formula sugar content 8.5 g / 100 m Relationship of insulin, glucose, leptin, IL-6 and TNF-alpha in human breast milk with infant growth and body composition.

Send STAT lab glucose, but do not wait for result to proceed with pathway If clinically stable feed expressed breast milk (any amount) or formula, 5-10 mL/kg Practitioner may opt for NG feed Recheck 1/2 hour after feeding ended - or 1 hour after last chec Maximize breast milk provision to babies glucose therapy, and adjust IV rate by blood glucose concentration. 2 [A] 6. If the neonate is unable to suck or feedings are not during IV therapy for hypoglycemia reduces the duration of IV therapy needed and is associated with lower maximum glucose infusion rates. 96. 8. Carefully document.
Glucose infusion rate can be calculated through following equation: GIR = (Concentration, g/100 mL) x (Infusion rate, mL/hr) x (1000) / (Weight, kg) x (60 min/hr) Parameters of GIR Calculator: The parameters considered in calculating the GIR formula is the patient's body weight, height and gender where the dextrose concentration is expressed as a whole number, e.g. 5 or 10. A GIR of 5-8 mg/kg/min is typical. Infants who are not feeding should not be allowed a rate less than 5 mg/kg/min for any significant period of time. The GIR needed to optimize nutrition in neonates is 14 mg/kg/min
Blood glucose levels initially ranged from 165 to 203 mg/dL but trended down to 89 to 120 mg/dL by DOL 2. Trophic feeds of expressed breast milk (EBM) were initiated on DOL 4. The total GIR of the TPN ranged from 3.3 to 8 mg/kg per minute If the infant is tolerating milk feeds these should be neither stopped nor reduced (unless HH is suspected, see below). The initial rate of 10% glucose infusion should be 3 ml/kg/hour (5 mg/kg/minute), but adjusted according to frequent accurate blood glucose measurements continuous glucose infusion at an initial rate of 6-8 mg/kg/min. BGL should checked after 30 to 60 min, and then every 6 hour until blood sugar is >50 mg/dL. If BGL stays below 45 mg/dL despite bolus and glucose infusion, glucose infusion rate (GIR) should be increased in steps of 2 mg/kg/min every 15 to 30 min until a maximum of 12 mg/kg/min The infusion rates of dextrose-containing solutions and the amounts of enteral feed at each time point (24, 12, and 6 hours before glucagon administration and 0, 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 hours after the glucagon infusion was started) were re-corded. The composition of any expressed breast milk was as Mothers of preterm infants had nonsignificant changes in milk insulin levels. In a study of 7 diabetic nursing mothers and 10 nondiabetic nursing mothers, blood glucose was elevated to about 300 mg/dL using a continuous intravenous glucose infusion. Regular pork insulin was then given intravenously to lower the blood glucose
. It should be noted that infants in the first 48 hours of life have a state of regulated hyperinsulism resulting in suppression of ketone production I.v. and oral - start at least 60 ml/kg/24h of 10 % glucose iv. (4.2 mg/kg/min) topped up with milk as two-hourly feeds to a total of at least 90 ml/kg/day. I.v. only - if feeds not tolerated give 90 ml/kg/24h of 10 % glucose or 45 ml/kg/24h of 20 % glucose in a fluid restricted baby (6.3 mg/kg/min)
Milk insulin was elevated in the diabetic women, with the peak milk insulin level occurring between 30 to 50 minutes after the intravenous injection. Nine of the 10 nondiabetic women had detectable insulin levels in breastmilk which ranged from 5.1 to 13 milli-IU/mL IV Glucose infusion should be started in babies with asymptomatic hypoglycemia • BSL< 25mg/dl • BSL< 40mg/dl despite of one attempt of feeding breast milk • Enteral feeding is contraindicated • Baby became symptomatic 9 Since the total glutamate concentration (free + protein bound) in breast milk is 2 g/L, i.e. 2 mg/mL (4, 5), these infusion rates would correspond to breast milk given at 250 mL/kg/d (250 × 2 = 500.. It is not known whether glucose passes into breast milk. Discuss with your doctor the risks and benefits of taking Glucose Intravenous Infusion whilst breastfeeding. Taking other medicine To raise blood glucose levels, slow feeding with breast milk or formula using a pump rather than bolus feeding may be considered, particularly when IV access is difficult. Also, delaying the first bath has been found to reduce incidence of hypoglycemia and may be considered for at-risk infants [ 59 ]
These data indicate that, in otherwise healthy infants undergoing minor surgery, intravenous infusion of 2% glucose may be sufficient to maintain plasma glucose concentrations within physiologic ranges and to prevent a compensatory increase in lipid mobilization (lipolysis) when fluids are infused at a rate of 6 ml.kg-1.h-1 At 0400h baseline breast milk (lactating subjects) and blood samples (7ml) were obtained following which the subject received a primed constant rate infusion of [U-13 C]glucose (60 μmol/kg; 1.04 ± 0.01 μmol•kg-1 •min-1 during the fasting period, and 80 μmol/kg, 2.72 ± 0.06 μmol•kg-1 •min-1 during the feeding period). Blood samples.
. glucose infusion +/- milk feeds (risk of rebound hypoglycaemia). Any sudden interruption of intravenous glucose may result in profound hypoglycaemia secondary to hyperinsulinism. Tissued iv drips must be urgently resited. Never give more than a 12.5% glucose infusion into a peripheral vein (extravasation injury)
Glucose infusion rate while on feeding (mg/kg/min) = [IV rate (ml/hr) x Dextrose conc (g/dl) x .0167 / wt (kg)] + [Feed rate(ml/hr) x Dextrose conc* (g/dl) x .0167 / wt (kg)] Amount of dextrose in milk : Breast milk = 7.1 gm/dL ,Term formula = 7.1gm/dL, Preterm formula = 8.5 gm/d Infusion studies of radiolabeled glucose have showed an average glucose uptake of approximately 9 mg/min/100 g of tissue in lactating sow and goat mammary glands [24, 25].In lactating Holstein cows, Cant et al.  showed a mammary glucose uptake of approximately 300 mmol/h to support a milk production of 0.6 kg/h.This uptake was close to an earlier observation that 72 g of glucose is taken up.
. (if RBS remains <45mg/dl refer to NICU guidelines Breast milk calories is 20 Kcal/oz PS: the actual breast milk calories is unknown Fortification could be 22 Kcal/oz, 24 Kcal/oz, 26 Kcal/oz, 28 Kcal/oz, 30 Glucose Infusion Rate (GIR) Every infant on continuous infusion that has dextrose should have a GIR calculated and presented during roun If the blood glucose concentration remains low despite 2 milk feeds, start an intravenous infusion. If the blood glucose concentration falls below 1.4 mmol/l at any time, treat for severe hypoglycaemia. If the infant is too small or too ill to tolerate milk feeds, start a 10% intravenous infusion (e.g. Neonatalyte)
A dextrose infusion rate of 3-5 mg/kg/min may be used in infants born to diabetic mothers, both to prevent overstimulation of glucose secretion and because of the greater fat mass of these infants. A dextrose infusion rate of 4-7 mg/kg/min may be used in most full-term and late-preterm neonates. In IUGR neonates, a glucose infusion rate of. -If the blood glucose is <2.0mmol/L, start IV dextrose at 100% of daily total fluid volume until a glucose above 2.6mmol/L is achieved. • Reintroduce milk feeds as soon as blood sugars allow. Initially, with hourly or two hourly feeds. Breast milk is preferable as it is more ketogenic. As milk intake increases decrease IV fluids accordingly Adequate nutrition and glycemic homeostasis are increasingly recognized as potentially neuroprotective for the developing brain. In the context of hy of expressed breast milk (EBM) were initiated on DOL 4. The total GIR of the TPN ranged from 3.3 to 8 mg/kg per minute. On DOL 7, blood glucose had increased to 200 mg/dL, so the GIR was decreased from 7.5 to 6.2 mg/kg per minute and maintained <7 mg/kg per minute thereafter. Despite this change, the blood glucose leve

If there is no contraindication to feedin g, oral feeds of breast or formula milk should be continued along with and their proportion increased as the intravenous infusion is tapered LD). The aim of our study was to determine whether breast milk is better than formula milk in preventing PNALD in infants receiving PN for >4 weeks. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of newborns requiring prolonged parenteral nutrition. We divided the sample into 3 different groups (exclusive breast-feeding, exclusive formula-feeding, and mixed feeding. We compared baseline. When an infant requires oxygen, it is well established that knowledge of the FiO 2 at which the target SpO 2 is achieved is essential. By analogy, it is clinically, physiologically, and diagnostically important to determine at what glucose infusion rate (GIR) one achieves target glucose levels in infants and children with hypoglycemia or dysregulated glucose levels The method, composition and rate will depend on the weight and gestational age of the patient. >2 kg, > 34 weeks: Try sterile water first, 5 - 10 cc. If tolerated, give maternal breast milk (the optimal food for a newborn) or formula (may start with half-strength for smaller or tenuous infants)
Hepatic glucose production and lipolysis were measured by use of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry after constant rate infusion of [6,6-2 H 2]glucose and [2-13 C]glycerol tracers Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breast-feed — as t is not known if TEPEZZA may pass into your breast milk. Indications. TEPEZZA is a prescription infusion medication to treat thyroid eye disease. The recommended dosage is 10 mg/kg for the initial infusion treatment, followed by 20 mg/kg every three weeks for an additional.
In infants who weigh 1-1.5kg, start at 8mg/kg/min. If the glucose infusion rate is excessive, hyperglycemia may develop. If blood glucose levels are greater than 150-180mg/dL, glucosuria may occur, which may lead to osmotic diuresis. This can be controlled by either decreasing the glucose infusion rate or treating the infant with insulin The bolus needs to be followed by a glucose infusion rate (GIR) of 6 to 8 mg/kg/min. Regardless of bolus and GIR, if BGL remains beneath 45 mg/dL, GIR has to be increased in increments of 2 mg/kg/min every 15 to 30 minutes until a maximum of 12 mg/kg/min. Blood glucose level has to be observed every 30 to 60 minutes till glucose level is >50 mg. During the 9 h of galactose ingestion, milk production was 374 ± 58 ml. Assuming a lactose concentration of 7% or 220 m m in milk and that 61% [(69 + 54)/2] of lactose is derived from the plasma glucose in the fed state, the rate of glucose converted to lactose was approximately 1.40 μmol·kg −1 ·min −1 and the rate of galactose. Document glucose infusion rates for all infants with hyperglycaemia Glycosuria alone should not initiate reduction of glucose intake if TBG is <10 mmol/L. 4.3.2 Insulin infusion If glucose intakes cannot be reduced, or reduction does not control blood glucose concentrations < 10 mmol/L, insulin infusion should be started
A high glucose infusion rate (GIR) is often needed to prevent hypoglycemia, apnea, and seizures. Without immediate medical management and correction of hypoglycemia, brain damage and death may ensue. For the purpose of this article, only CHI in the neonatal/infant period will be discussed along with exclusive human milk administration and. • Initial glucose infusion rate is generally 4 -6 mg/kg/min • Can be higher in preterm infants, 6‐8 mg/kg/min • D10 bolus of 2 ml/kg can be given for extremely low glucose levels • Dextrose concentration up to 30% may be required to delivery glucose infusion rates in the 15‐30 mg/kg/min rang Intravenous infusion of dobutamine is also possible after dilution with compatible infusion solutions such as: 5% glucose solution, 0.9% sodium chloride or 0.45% sodium chloride in 5% glucose solution. (For detailed information for dilution please see section 6.6.) Infusion solutions should be prepared immediately before use Furthermore, inositol is present at relatively high concentrations in human breast milk (∼1200 μmol/L), 3rd only to lactose and glucose, suggesting exogenous inositol requirements postnatally . Mannose is a biologically important molecule for N - and O -glycosylation, mannosylation, and glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor synthesis ( 11 )

Consider a 10% glucose bolus of 2.5 ml/Kg at A), B), C) or D) if BG<1 or continuing to drop. Central venous access is required if glucose concentration exceeds 10%; A glucose bolus should always be followed by an increase in the rate of glucose infusion. Frequent and large glucose boluses should be avoided Formula feed/Expressed Breast milk (EBM) 10ml fourth hourly 3. IVF -10% Dextrose ,5 drops/minute at a glucose infusion rate of 4mg/kg/minute.

Labetalol is widely distributed throughout the body, crosses the placenta, and is found in breast milk. Limited amounts cross the blood-brain barrier. Labetalol is extensively metabolized in the liver by glucuronidation and is excreted in the feces via biliary elimination (30%) and in the urine (55-60% as metabolites and 5% as unchanged drug) Start IV infusion of 10% glucose at 60-90ml/kg/d Dextrose gel can be given while IV access is obtained OR intramuscular glucagon 200micrograms/kg Unable to obtain immediate IV • Do no stop the establishment of breast feeding unless the baby is too sick to feed or there is a clinical contraindication to feeding. Support expression of breast milk .001 to.02 mg/kg/hour IV or subcutaneously may reduce the infusion rate of glucose needed to maintain normoglycemia. Some experts recommend glucagon infusion with concurrent administration of octreotide; if administered concurrently, the lower initial rate of glucagon.001 mg/kg/hour is recommended. Monitor blood glucose closely glucose concentration, and the selected insulin infusion rate was adjusted to ensure that the lower 5% probability limit of the forecasted blood glucose concentration was>4 mmol/L. Further details on the model identifica-tion, control methodology and stochastic modeling of insulin sensitivity are published elsewhere [24,26,30] The total fluid rate will be approximately 20% higher than this number, i.e. 80+16=96ml/kg/d. That would be 20kg x 96 = 1920ml/d = 80ml/hr. 10% of this rate should be the intralipid rate and the other 90% should be TPN infusion rate. IL @ 8ml/hr = 192ml/d = 384kcal/day
body water with milk water to estimate the existence, if any, of dead volume of milk in the breast; 2) a primed constant rate infusion of [U-13C]glucose to measure the fraction of galactose and glucose in lac-tose derived from the plasma glucose space; and 3) a primed constant rate infusion of [2-13C]glycerol to measure the fraction of glucose an Giving breast milk and water Transition to Treatment Plans B and A The maximum rate of fluid infusion is about 20 ml/kg/hour; with higher rates, abdominal distension and repeated vomiting are frequent problems. Glucose malabsorption: Clinically significant glucose malabsorption is unusual during acute diarrhoea. However, when it does. dependent upon glucose and glucose requirements are high. There is a consensus view that babies who present with significant hyperinsulinism should receive milk intake or glucose infusion adequate to maintain blood glucose levels above 3mmol/L4. Neonatal hyperinsulinism. This may arise from diffuse pancreatic dysfunction (previously terme If blood glucose level is <1.0 mmol/L, arrange urgent medical review and treat with intravenous 10% glucose bolus and infusion. Use postintervention blood glucose levels to guide increasing glucose delivery rate until blood glucose levels are >2.5 mmol/L. Enteral feeds, including breast feeding, should continue if possible
Ciprofloxacin is excreted in breast milk. Due to the potential risk of articular damage, ciprofloxacin should not be used during breast-feeding. The rate of resistance to methicillin is around 20 to 50% among all staphylococcal species and is usually higher in nosocomial isolates. solution for infusion, Glucose 50 mg/ml (5%) and 100 mg. Exclusive breast milk feeding rate during birth hospital stay has been calculated by the California Department of Public Health for the last several years using newborn genetic disease testing data. Healthy People 2010 and the CDC have also been active in promoting this goal. Type of Measure: Process Improvement Noted As: Increase in the rate 4. If the glucose level remains low despite feedings, begin IV glucose therapy and adjust the IV rate by blood glucose concentration. Avoid bolus doses of glucose unless blood glucose is unrecordable or there are severe clinical signs (e.g., seizures or coma). If a bolus dose is given, use 5 mg/kg of glucose in 10% dextrose preparation. 5
New NICU TPN Starter Protocol (Indicated on Day of life 1 for neonates < or = 1500 grams) • TPN Starter Protocol consists of three orders that are co-infused. 1. TPN Starter bag (Dextrose 10% / Trophamine 6% / Calcium Gluconate 2.33 mEq / Heparin 125 unit/250 mL) -Rate: 2.1 mL/kg/hr (50mL/kg/day) -This is a highly concentrated starter bag. The infusion rate must NOT excee Infants with very low glucose concentration (1.1-1.4 mmol/L): Clinical intervention -IV glucose infusion to raise plasma glucose levels to > 2.5 mmol/L Infants with risk factors: Initiate glucose monitoring as soon as possible after birth, within 2-3 hours after birth and before feeding, or at any time there are abnormal signs
Newborns of both groups were encouraged to feed but if the feeding was insufficient, it was administered breast milk or formula milk through a syringe. Treated group showed a failure rate in reversion of lower hypoglycaemia compared to controls (14% vs 24%, RR = 0.57 (0.33-0.98), p = 0.04) Immediately after the bolus, a glucose infusion at an initial rate of 6-8 mg/kg/min should be started. Check blood sugar after 30 to 60 min and then every 6 h until blood sugar is >50 mg/dL. Repeat subsequent hypoglycemic episodes may be treated by increasing the glucose infusion rate by 2 mg/kg/min until a maximum of 12 mg/kg/min infusion rate. 21. Weaning glucose infusion • Reduce glucose infusion to 8 mg/kg/minute • Wean glucose infusion and increase feeds • Wean glucagon (if used) • Wean hydrocortisone (if used) Queensland Clinical Guidelines: Newborn hypoglycaemia 22 hypoglycaemia, glycogen, neurological, breast feeding, glucose gel, dextrose gel.
Breast milk collection. Within 72 h of delivery, 7 ml of breast milk sample namely colostrum was collected from mothers in sterilized tubes with a manual breast pump after an overnight fast. The second set of mature milk sample (15 ml) was collected at 6 weeks postpartum For pregnant women with diabetes, some particular challenges exist for both mother and child.If the woman has diabetes as a pre-existing or acquired disorder, it can cause early labor, birth defects, and larger than average infants.. When type 1 diabetes mellitus or type 2 diabetes mellitus is pre-existing, planning in advance is emphasized if one wants to become pregnant and stringent blood. Ensure adequate fluid replacement & include K Cl in the infusion to prevent insulin-induced hypokalaemia. Child: As soluble insulin, given in conc of 1 unit/mI using an infusion pump: Initially infuse at a rate of 0.1 units/ kg/hr, double or quadruple the rate if blood glucose conc do not decrease by about 5 mmol/l/hr insulin [in´su-lin] 1. the major fuel-regulating hormone of the body, a double-chain protein formed from proinsulin in the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. Insulin promotes the storage of glucose and the uptake of amino acids, increases protein and lipid synthesis, and inhibits lipolysis and gluconeogenesis. Secretion of insulin. Hyperglycaemia is a recognised complication of preterm PN which can be managed either by reducing the amount of glucose provided, or by use of an insulin infusion. The use of insulin should be limited to situations where reasonable adaptation of glucose infusion rate, including continuous infusions, does not control hyperglycaemia (6)
