Ensure a Smooth Transition to the New Selenious Acid
The new selenious acid injection will replace selenium injection as a parenteral nutrition additive.
Selenium is sometimes added to parenteral nutrition because illness can increase the body's need for it...and patients getting parenteral nutrition can become selenium deficient.
Selenious acid is just a more concentrated version of selenium. It has selenium 60 mcg/mL...instead of 40 mcg/mL like selenium injection.
