Consider Smoflipid as an Alternative to Traditional IV Lipids

Smoflipid (SMAH-flip-id) will compete with traditional lipids (Intralipid, Nutrilipid) for use in parenteral nutrition.

Smoflipid is a 20% emulsion, like most lipid products...and can be mixed with dextrose and amino acids, or hung separately.

The difference is Smoflipid contains four fats...soybean oil (30%), medium chain triglycerides (30%), olive oil (25%), and fish oil (15%). Intralipid and Nutrilipid just use soybean oil.
