Prosol IV consists of 18 essential and non-essential amino acids which are needed for protein synthesis as well as body build up. The amino acid composition is such that positive nitrogen balance can be achieved in the post-operative period and during extended periods of intravenous nutrition.
Prosol IV Infusion 5%
The nitrogen requirement for maintenance of body protein mass depends on the patient’s condition (nutritional state and degree of metabolic stress).
No or minor metabolic stress and normal nutritional state: 0.10-0.15 g nitrogen/kg/day,
Moderate metabolic stress with or without malnutrition: 0.15-0.20 g nitrogen/kg/day,
Severe catabolism as in burns, sepsis and trauma: up to 0.20-0.25 g nitrogen/kg/day.
The dosage range 0.10-0.25 g nitrogen/kg/day corresponds to 15-35 ml Amino acids IV/kg/day.
In obese patients, the dose should be based on the estimated ideal weight. Depending upon patients requirements, 1000-2000 ml Amino acids IV may be infused intravenously per 24 hours. Amino acids IV should be infused slowly, at rates 1.4-2.8 ml (30-60 drops) per minute.
