Lipid Emulsion Therapy Sub-Registry

Background

The purpose of this project is to evaluate the case characteristics of patients who receive intravenous lipid emulsion therapy. Previous literature to date has focused on animal studies or has been primarily limited to case reports or small case series. This prospectively collected data set will permit a much more detailed description of the use of lipid, its potential benefits, and potential harms. Recently, several cases of pancreatitis following lipid emulsion have been reported. One specific subset of this cohort we aim to study is the prevalence of pancreatitis following lipid emulsion therapy.
