 PTE-4
Parenteral nutrition (PN) is the feeding of a person intravenously, bypassing the usual process of eating and digestion. The person receives nutritional formulae that contain nutrients such as glucose, salts, amino acids, lipids and added vitamins and dietary minerals. It is called total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or total nutrient admixture (TNA) when no significant nutrition is obtained by other routes, and partial parenteral nutrition (PPN) when nutrition is also partially enteric. It may ...

 Pitocin Oxytocin
Oxytocin (Oxt) is a human peptide hormone and neuropeptide that is used as a medication to facilitate childbirth.[3][4][5] Oxytocin is normally produced by the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary.[6] It plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction in both sexes, and during and after childbirth.[7] Oxytocin is released into the bloodstream as a hormone in response to stretching of the cervix and uterus during labor and with stimulation of ...
 Pitressin Vasopressin, ADH
Vasopressin, also known as antidiuretic hormone (ADH), is a neurohypophysial hormone found in most mammals. In most species it contains arginine and is thus also called arginine vasopressin (AVP) or argipressin.[4] Its two primary functions are to retain water in the body and to constrict blood vessels.[5] Vasopressin regulates the body's retention of water by acting to increase water reabsorption in the kidney's collecting ducts, the tubules which receive the very dilute urine produced by th...
