With the number of individuals becoming overweight or obese, healthcare professionals are in need of accurate, reliable, and convenient tools to help personalize weight loss programs. Rece...
This study evaluates if measuring resting metabolic rate (the number of calories the body burns at rest) before surgery can help predict successful weight loss after surgery.
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.
Resting Energy Expenditure is the amount of energy, usually expressed in Kcal required for a 24 hour period by the body during resting conditions. It is closely related to, but not identic...
The present study was based on secondary analysis using the non-intervention control conditions of five separate studies with common measures. The current analysis examine the indirect and...
Predicting resting metabolic rate (RMR) in mechanically ventilated, critically ill patients is an important part of the nutrition care in such patients.
Feeding is understood to alter gas exchange and resting metabolic rate (RMR) in critically ill patients, but there are limited data describing such changes.
Higher resting heart rate (RHR) was associated with poor prognosis in breast cancer survivors, but the mechanism underlying such association has not been fully studied. We investigated the association...
We examined the independent and cumulative associations of resting heart rate and pulse pressure with metabolic syndrome in Chinese rural population based on epidemiological research.
Although validating resting metabolic rate (RMR) prediction equations in different populations is warranted to estimate total energy requirements, there are no data about the accuracy and applicabilit...
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.
Volume of biological fluid completely cleared of drug metabolites as measured in unit time. Elimination occurs as a result of metabolic processes in the kidney, liver, saliva, sweat, intestine, heart, brain, or other site.
Research using processes by which the reliability and relevance of a procedure for a specific purpose are established.
Works consisting of research using processes by which the reliability and relevance of a procedure for a specific purpose are established.
A syndrome that results from abnormally low secretion of THYROID HORMONES from the THYROID GLAND, leading to a decrease in BASAL METABOLIC RATE. In its most severe form, there is accumulation of MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES in the SKIN and EDEMA, known as MYXEDEMA.
