Center for Loss in Multiple Birth (CLIMB), Inc.:"Welcome to the website of CLIMB, the Center for Loss in Multiple Birth, Inc. We are parents throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and beyond who have experienced the death of one or more, both or all of our twins or higher multiples at any time from conception through birth, infancy and childhood. We originated in 1987, when a mother whose twin son died very suddenly at birth believed that she was truly the only one--then began to search for "a few" others. Soon, she was hearing from families everywhere who were struggling to cope and heal from the devastating loss of their twin or twins, their triplet or triplets or other higher multiples, in a wide variety of circumstances -- in sad contrast to the happy images of multiples portrayed in the media and elsewhere."

Hospice, Palliative Care, End of Life, Dying, Death

Perinatal Hospice/Supportive Care for the Dying Unborn Infant:"Perinatal hospice provides supportive care for parents and the infant with a serious or fatal birth defect both before and after birth. Most people think of hospice as applying to the elderly or at least adults. It has also been extended to children and even to babies. But it was Dr. Byron Calhoun of Madigan Army Hospital who developed the concept of perinatal hospice."

Etiology Of Malnutrition In The Cancer Patient, Total Parenteral Nutrition In Cancer Patients, Orthomolecular Oncology:"The etiology of malnutrition is multifactorial, involving secretion of cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) by tumor directly or from antigen-antibody allergic response to antineoplastic therapy. Unlike simple starvation, this metabolic response leads to visceral tissue depletion, labelled bypoalbuminemic malnutrition (Harvey et al., 1979). Additional tissue cytokines result in protein wasting, depletion of body fat, and decreased food intake (Fong et al., 1989). The consequence of this cancer cachexia is cell-mediated immune deficiency. Excess morbidity and mortality result from opportunistic infection and failure of wound healing. It is also important to recognize that in some patients specific micronutrient deficiencies, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, or vitamin B12 deficiency can be present even in the absence of weight loss and can be devastating (Blackburn et al., 1977)."

The potential benefits and risks for each patient weigh in these decisions. Considered variables or parameters include: child's illness obstacle to enteral feeding: absolute or partial? Temporary or indefinite duration? pre-existing and anticipated nutritional needs quality of life issues: continuous versus cyclic infusion?"
