Reserve supplies for neonatal or pediatric patients or other vulnerable groups such as patients with short bowel or malabsorption syndromes. 2. Avoid use of pediatric trace elements for adult patients. 3. Adult trace element products are not recommended for pediatric patients. 4. Consider oral or enteral multivitamin or multimineral products for supplementation if possible. 5. Avoid using trace elements additives in IV fluids. 6.
