Feasibility of Systematic Handgrip Strength (HGS) Testing and Short-term Changes in Muscle Strength in Digestive Cancer Patients Treated by Chemotherapy

Sarcopenia is defined as a loss in skeletal muscle mass and function (strength and/or performance). There is a high prevalence in elderly and in patients with cancer. Several mechanisms ar...

Clinical Trial to Assess the Preventive Effects of Cetylpyridinium Chloride on Sarcopenia

This study is to assess the impact on the prevention of sarcopenia after taking cetylpyridinium chloride targeting the patients of pre-sarcopenia or sarcopenia over the age of 60

Measurement of Sarcopenia at Post-stroke Rehabilitation Outcome

The purposes of this study are 1. To explore effect of sarcopenia on recovery of post stroke hemiplegia 2. To explore the effect of stroke on sarcopenia and relationship between the ...

Handgrip Strength Value in Predicting Mechanical Ventilation Weaning

The purpose of this study is to test the association between ICU acquired weakness as evaluated by dominant handheld dynamometry (handgrip) and the mechanical ventilation weaning outcome

Use of the Sit-To-Stand Task as a Screening Tool for Sarcopenia The

A common condition associated with ageing is sarcopenia, which is a progressive decrease in muscle mass. Sarcopenia is associated with adverse outcomes including increased mortality, and p...

Comparing Mini Sarcopenia Risk Assessment With SARC-F for Screening Sarcopenia in Community-Dwelling Older Adults.

The Mini Sarcopenia Risk Assessment (MSRA), a new sarcopenia screening tool, has 2 versions: MSRA-7 (full version, 7 items) and MSRA-5 (short version, 5 items). We aimed to compare the diagnostic valu...

Factors Associated with Sarcopenia in Patients with Colorectal Cancer.

Introduction; Sarcopenia are frequently observed in cancer patients and was associated with poor prognosis. Objectives; to determine the association of nutritional status, body composition, and clinic...

SARC-F for Screening of Sarcopenia Among Older Adults: A Meta-analysis of Screening Test Accuracy.

To examine the screening ability of SARC-F for older adults using a meta-analysis.

Predictive score of sarcopenia occurrence one year after bariatric surgery in severely obese patients.

Sarcopenic obesity is a risk factor of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to generate a predictive score of sarcopenia occurrence one year after bariatric surgery.

Dynamic Handgrip Strength Endurance: A Reliable Measurement in Older Women.

Dynamic handgrip strength endurance is essential for daily activities that require repetitive gripping movements for a sustained period. At this time, there is no information about the reliability of ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

The subject's ability to connect 25 numbered and lettered circles in sequence in a specific length of time. A score of 12 or below is suggestive of organic brain damage.

An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.

Progressive decline in muscle mass due to aging which results in decreased functional capacity of muscles.

Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
