Question


  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of intravenous multivitamin therapy in a hospital or outpatient setting?

  2. What are the evidence-based guidelines for using intravenous multivitamin therapy in a hospital or outpatient setting?


Key Message

One systematic review was identified with a scope broad enough to include potentially relevant primary studies, however this systematic review did not include any primary studies with relevance to the research questions for this report. Additionally, no evidence-based guidelines were identified. Therefore, no conclusion can be provided regarding intravenous multivitamin or micronutrient supplementation for patients with malabsorption issues, patients post-surgery, and patients with burns, trauma, intoxication, or other serious infectious diseases either in a hospital or in an outpatient setting.
