TPN Container Label

TPN Container Label Description

The TPN Container Label is the label for the TPN final container.  The Container Label may be continued to two or more physical labels, if necessary, to print all of the information for the order.  The Container Label is always printed for a TPN order.

  1. "List All Additives" - Lists all the ordered additives individually.  No anion/cation summary is printed.
  2. "Anions/Cations Summary & Other Additives" - Prints an anion/cation summary, and individually lists any other additives that don't contribute to the anion/cation totals.  The anion/cation summary will include contributions from base solutions if the "Electrolyte Summary Include Base Components" check box is selected.
