B

C

D
A large volume (3L) with low osmolality and high fat is tolerated
Question 5 Explanation: 
With PPN, nutritient solutions enter in peripheral veins. However, these veins cannot tolerate high osmolarity solutions and require large volumes to infuse enough calories. Many times, PPN is used as a supplemental feeding with enteral nutrition. If long term TPN is needed, central access would always be used. Central access is placement into a much larger vein such as the superior vena cava. Therefore, when the high osmolarity of the solution goes into the system it is diluted by the amount of blood.
