Peptamen HN

What is Peptamen HN?

Peptamen HN is a high-protein, 100% whey peptide feed specifically formulated for enteral feeding in intensive care unit patients. Recommended for critically ill patients, including those with sepsis, ARDS, trauma and burns, the advanced formula of 100% hydrolysed whey protein is designed to help manage oxidative stress, and the high-protein content helps to maintain lean body mass. It can be adjusted to the nutritional needs and feeding tolerance of the patient.
