Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to increase after bariatric interventions, whereas it generally decreases after caloric restriction-based therapies. However, no studies have evaluated the changes in body composition and RMR over IGB treatment.

Aesthetic athletes strive to attain an ideal body image and the physical demands placed on dancers make their body composition and fitness equally as important as their technique. Body composition has...
The surface area (SA) theory proposes that resting metabolic rate (RMR) scales with body mass, which parallels the exchange SA of organisms, and that a species with a larger scaling exponent of exchan...
The use of opioids as analgesic is on the rise, despite their inhibitory effect on gastric emptying. A novel feeding catheter with integrated intragastric balloon was developed to continuously assess ...
This study examined the independent effects of eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acid supplementation on resting metabolic rate (RMR) and substrate oxidation in young healthy females an...
Heart rate is routinely measured as part of the clinical examination but is rarely acted upon unless it is well outside a population-based normal range. With wearable sensor technologies, heart rate c...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon is a safe and effective means for weight loss and improved metabolic disease in patients with cirrhosis re...
Assess the relationship between body composition, metabolism, and dietary needs in people with spinal cord injury compared to their healthy controls that are age and sex matched.
The reason we are doing this research is to get information about the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon to learn if it is safe and if it works. We want to learn if older teenagers who are ove...
The study aims to measure the effect of intragastric balloon on gastric function, particularly gastric accommodation and pace making, and the possible underlying changes in autonomic funct...
In this pilot study the investigators test the hypothesis that gastric motility can be measured with an intragastric balloon.
A measurement of OXYGEN uptake in a sitting, resting person (resting oxygen consumption), varying with age, sex, race, and other factors. In normal adult men, one MET is approximately 3.5 ml O2/kg/min of body weight. Oxygen uptake during activities or work can be measured in METs which can be use to determine health status and exercise prescription.
