The growth and nutrition of premature infants during the neonatal period is a concern of neonatology services; it impacts the child's health in the short and long term. The weight deficit,...
Nutrition is a major issue for premature infants. Inappropriate nutritional intake during the first weeks of life is responsible for postnatal growth restriction and adverse long-term outc...
Provision of high and early fat intake may help to reduce the amount of postnatal weight loss in Very Low Birth Weight Infants. It may also help utilize the high amount of protein that is ...
The objective of this study is to compare the difference in daily protein intake of critically ill patients in two standardized enteral nutrition formulas (20% versus 33% percent) with the...
Breast milk is readily accepted as the ideal source of nutrition for almost all infants, including premature or very low birth weight infants. However, these high-risk infants require the ...
Accurate assessment of dietary intake is essential, but self-report of dietary intake is prone to measurement error and bias. Discovering metabolic consequences of diets with lower compared with highe...
The NUTrition Risk in the Critically Ill (NUTRIC) scoring system is a tool useful, discriminating critically-ill patients benefiting from optimal nutrition intake (>80% of prescription). Recent recomm...
Standardized Nutrition Protocol for Very Low-Birth-Weight Infants Resulted in Less Use of Parenteral Nutrition and Associated Complications, Better Growth, and Lower Rates of Necrotizing Enterocolitis.
We assessed the impact of a standardized nutrition initiative for very low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants on their nutrition and clinical outcomes.
To investigate and analyze the actual intake of protein and energy in adult patients with severe burns during post burn days (PBDs) 3 to 14. Records of 52 adult patients with severe burns [37 males a...
Patterns of protein food intake are undergoing a transition in Western countries, but little is known about how dietary changes to protein intake affect nutrient adequacy of the diet.
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
The lack of sufficient energy or protein to meet the body's metabolic demands, as a result of either an inadequate dietary intake of protein, intake of poor quality dietary protein, increased demands due to disease, or increased nutrient losses.
Improving health status of an individual by adjusting the quantities, qualities, and methods of nutrient intake.
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
