VolumE maNagement Under Body Composition Monitoring in Critically Ill patientS on CRRT

Although monitoring fluid balance for continuous renal replacement therapy-treated patients is an important issue, most physicians usually use conventional methods such as the difference between the amount of intake and output (I & O), which is not objective way. Meanwhile, bioimpedance electrical vector analysis presents the patients' fluid status with ...

Impact of Protein Quantity Within the USDA Healthy Style Eating Pattern on Sleep

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 13% of U.S. adults were reported to sleep 6 hours or less per weeknight in 2001. Eight years later, the number increased to 20%. Also, the proportion of people experiencing a sleep problem (e.g. difficulties in initiating or maintaining sleep) several nights per week ...

The Effect of Neprilysin (LCZ696) on Exercise Tolerance in Patients With Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) with reduced ventricular ejection fraction is a disease that affects around 5.7 million people in the United States, with a mortality rate of approximately 50% within 5 years. HF is characterized by an exacerbation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which leads to an increase in sympathetic nerve ...


Body Composition in Systemic Amyloidosis

Malnutrition is a prominent clinical feature of patients affected by systemic immunoglobulin light-chain amyloidosis (AL), with a prevalence ranging between 25-50%. Although the prognosis predominantly depend on the presence and severity of cardiac involvement, it was shown that malnutrition is an independent predictor of survival and quality of life. However, ...

Total Body Composition in Detection of Nutrition Depletion in Head and Neck Patients

In this 4-year cohort study, a total of 120 patients with stage III-IV head and neck cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) patient undergoing concurrent chemo-radiotherapy will be enrolled. Laboratory examination will be performed to evaluate the physiological change and treatment related toxicity, including BUN and Cr for hydration and renal function; ...

Can Correction of Low Vitamin D Status in Infancy Program for a Leaner Body Composition?

Neonates from hospitals in the greater Montreal area will be studied. Neonates will be screened for low vitamin D status within 48 h of birth for 25(OH)D to enable rapid entry into study groups. Those with serum 25(OH)D <50 nmol/L will be randomized to 400 or 1000 IU/d until 1 ...

Phase N/A

Protein Balance and Body Composition in Preterm Infants

Nutritional management of preterm infants aims to approximate tissue growth and body composition of a foetus of same postconceptional age. The adequacy of the quality of protein supply could influence the rate and the relative composition of weight gain. Aim of the study is to investigate protein balance according to ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Analysis for Patient With Lung Cancer Using Computed Tomography Image Analysis

Rationale: With 1.6 million new cases diagnosed each year and 1.3 million deaths, lung cancer is the leading cancer-related death worldwide and it represents a pressing health issue. Patients with lung cancer are more likely to experience cachexia, a severe debilitating disorder causing fatigue, weight loss, muscle wasting and associated ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Energy Intake and Expenditure in People With Phenylketonuria

Anthropometric measurements: Height will be measured using a wall-mounted stadiometer to the nearest 0.01 meter. Body mass will be measured in kilograms using balance scale. Body mass index (BMI) will be calculated using the following formula: BMI = kg/m [weight in kilograms/ height in meters]. 2. Handgrip strength (kilograms): Grip ...

Oral Nutritional Supplement Intervention Among Hemodialysis Patients With Sarcopenic Obesity

In chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, disease- and age- related changes in body composition, as well as the increased prevalence of obesity, determine a combination of excess weight and reduced muscle mass or strength, recently defined as sarcopenic obesity. The prevalence of sarcopenic obesity increase with lower eGFR, and previous ...
