Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was evaluated for its accuracy in predicting total lean, fat and bone in beef carcass sides and primal cuts. Left carcass sides (n = 316) were broken down into primal cuts, scanned using DXA and then dissected to fat, lean and bone. The DXA estimates for bone, lean and fat from the primals (n = 237) were used to calibrate partial least squares regression (PLSR) models for predicting tissue weights. Models were validated using 79 additional carcass sides, which ...
Lean is emerging as a quality improvement (QI) strategy in health care, but there has been minimal adoption in primary care teaching practices. This study describes a strategy for implementing Lean in an academic family medicine center and provides a formative assessment of this approach.
Data and metrics play important roles in quality and process improvement efforts. For one specific process improvement method, Lean or Lean health care, data and metrics are central components, allowing users to identify areas that need improvement and to assess the degree to which improvements have been realized. This article explores the role that metrics and measurement played in a wide-reaching "Lean"-based continuous quality improvement effort carried out in the primary care departments of a large, amb...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a multifactorial disease that involves a complex interaction between genetics, diet and lifestyle. Although closely related with obese subjects, it is also common in lean humans. This study aimed to characterize the diet and lifestyle of lean and obese NAFLD patients in Chinese.
To improve the delivery of patient care, governments and healthcare institutions adopted quality improvement methods that had been developed decades earlier in manufacturing industries. Many healthcare practitioners are either unaware or are inexperienced about what these practices entail and whether they are successful in healthcare. This article reviews Lean, an improvement philosophy made famous by the Toyota Motor Company. Lean uses a set of instruments and incorporates a long-term vision aiming for con...
We describe the use of Lean quality improvement methodologies at a Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility to redesign Emergency Department (ED) front-end operations and improve ED flow, specifically to reduce time from Veteran arrival to provider evaluation.
To identify certain subgroups in young and lean populations, who may be at a high risk of developing prediabetes/diabetes, which is not captured by current BMI-based screening algorithms.
To help guide metabolic support in critical care, an understanding of patients' nutritional status and risk is important. Several methods to monitor lean body mass are increasingly used in the ICU and knowledge about their advantages and limitations is essential.
We assessed resting central/peripheral blood pressure (BP), postexercise BP and hemodynamic responses [stroke volume (SV), cardiac output (CO), systemic vascular resistance (SVR)] after acute exercise and 2 wk of aerobic training in lean and centrally obese men matched for BP.
To compare current nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)-related algorithms to find suitable algorithms for NAFLD, especially lean NAFLD in middle-aged and elderly Chinese population.
We examined the feasibility and acceptability of a non-restrictive diet that was focused on increasing dietary fiber and lean protein intake for weight loss.
Interventions to increase physical activity in pregnancy are challenging for morbidly obese women. Targeting sedentary behaviours may be a suitable alternative to increase energy expenditure. We aimed to determine total energy expenditure, and energy expended in sedentary activities in morbidly obese and lean pregnant women. We administered the Pregnancy Physical Activity Questionnaire PPAQ (non-objective) and the Actical accelerometer (objective) to morbidly obese (BMI≥40kg/m²) and lean (BMI≤25Kg/M²)...
Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is a NAD booster with wide physiological repercussion including the improvement on glucose and lipid homeostasis, increasing the life expectancy in mammals. However, the effects of NR on metabolism are only partially known. Here, we evaluated the effects of NR on the thermogenic response, highlighting the brown adipose tissue (BAT) in lean mice.
Although higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with better survival in patients undergoing dialysis, BMI is not an adequate obesity indicator. We hypothesized that the fat-to-lean (F/L) mass ratio could be a suitable marker of nutritional status and evaluated its prognostic impact on long-term outcomes in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD).
Obesity leads to sleep disordered breathing (SDB), as manifested by recurrent upper airway obstructions during sleep termed obstructive sleep apnea and carbon dioxide retention due to obesity hypoventilation. The objective of this work was to characterize breathing during sleep in C57BL6/J mice with diet-induced obesity. Arterial blood gas was measured in nine obese and nine lean mice during wakefulness. Nine male mice with diet induced obesity and six lean male C57BL/6J mice were head mounted with EEG and ...
The application of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) methodology with regard to hip fracture care remains unexamined. The aim of this study is to illustrate the application of LSS principles in the implementation of a hip fracture integrated care pathway (ICP).
This study is to examine the influence of familiarity on energy intake, eating behavior, and concentration of the plasma gut hormones in lean and overweight young male subjects.
Body Mass Index as a determinant of systemic exposures to gallotannin metabolites during six-week consumption of mango (Mangifera Indica L.) and modulation of intestinal microbiota in lean and obese individuals.
This human clinical pilot trial investigated pharmacokinetics of gallotannin-metabolites and modulation of intestinal microbiota in healthy lean and obese individuals after 6 weeks of daily mango consumption.
Insulin resistance is a well-known physiological adaptation to prolonged fasting in healthy skeletal muscle. Obesity is associated with insulin resistance and metabolic inflexibility in skeletal muscle, and a pronounced increase in the risk of metabolic complications. Under the hypothesis that the metabolic traits of insulin resistance associated with prolonged fasting are different from insulin resistance associated with obesity, we examined nine obese and nine lean participants during 12 and 72h of fastin...
To investigate the association between lean psoas Cross-sectional Area (CSA) and one-year all-cause mortality in elderly patients sustaining pelvic and long bone fractures.
In PET/CT, quantitative evaluation of tumour metabolic activity is possible through standardized uptake values, usually normalized for body weight (BW) or lean body mass (LBM). Patient-specific LBM can be estimated from whole-body (WB) CT images. As most clinical indications only warrant PET/CT examinations covering head to midthigh, the aim of this study was to develop a simple and reliable method to estimate LBM from limited-coverage (LC) CT images and test its validity.
A study was conducted to determine the effect of different feeding programs and energy intakes on the body composition of broiler breeders (BB) from 22 wk of age to 65 wk of age. Cobb 500 BB that had been reared using three growth curves: (1) the control group followed Cobb 500 guidelines (SBW) for target body weights (BW), (2) the second group target BW was 20% heavier (HBW) than the SBW group, and (3) the third group target BW was 20% lighter (LBW) than the SBW group. At 21 wk of age, pullets from each gr...
To develop an equation that accurately estimates fat-free mass (FFM) and the ratio of FFM to skeletal size or mass, using morphometric measurements in lean working farm dogs, and to examine the association between FFM derived from body condition score (BCS) and FFM measured using isotope dilution.
Lean practices are critical to eliminate waste and enhance the quality of healthcare services through different improvement approaches of total quality management (TQM). In particular, the soft side of TQM is used to develop the innovation skills of employees that are essential for the continuous improvement strategies of hospitals.
Leptin is an adipo-myokine that regulates appetite and energy expenditure by a neuroendocrine feedback loop. Leptin levels are positively correlated with BMI in the spinal cord injury population and leptin levels are greater in individuals with spinal cord injury compared to uninjured controls. Leptin is produced in multiple tissues, including fat, bone, and skeletal muscle and is a putative biomarker of sedentary behavior in older adults. We assessed body composition leptin, adiponectin, and IL-6 levels in...
