Peptamen 1.5 Complete High Calorie Elemental Diet is ready-to-use for complete or supplemental tube feeding. Peptamen 1.5 is specifically formulated for easy digestion and absorption for patients with impaired gastrointestinal function and increased caloric requirements. Patients benefiting from Peptamen 1.5 include those with malabsorption which is complicated by fluid restriction, elevated caloric requirements, volume sensitivity, shortened feeding cycle, or aggressive goal rate attainment. Peptamen 1.5 may also be useful as a nocturnal feeding, as a dual feeding with TPN, or as a transition diet from TPN.
Peptamen 1.5 in the UltraPak System is packaged in a prefilled, non- air-dependent closed system to reduce set-up time, minimize the potential for bacterial contamination, decrease waste, and provide the flexibility of a hang time of up to 48 hours.
