Energy Dense Oleic Acid Formula to Geriatric Patients

2014-08-27 03:16:54 | BioPortfolio


Background and aims:

Old patients seldom reach energy requirements. The effects of an oleic-acid rich formula on energy intake and appetite were studied.

Methods: Recently admitted geriatric patients (n=71), likely to stay more than 1 week were randomised to receive a fat emulsion (Calogen, intervention group (IG)) or to standard care (control group (CG)). Thirty ml of the emulsion were given 3 times daily, i.e. 420 kcal, and was distributed at the regular medication rounds. Food intake and self-rated appetite were registered 2-3 days after admission and on day 8 or the day prior to discharge. Nutritional risk screening (NRS) 2002 and serum lipids and fatty acid profiles were analysed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A colorless, syrupy, strongly acidic liquid that can form detergents with oleic acid.

An unsaturated fatty acid that is the most widely distributed and abundant fatty acid in nature. It is used commercially in the preparation of oleates and lotions, and as a pharmaceutical solvent. (Stedman, 26th ed)

An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from excessive intake of nutrients. Generally, overnutrition generates an energy imbalance between food consumption and energy expenditure leading to disorders such as OBESITY.

Fats containing one or more double bonds, as from oleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid.

An analytical transmission electron microscopy method using an electron microscope fitted with an energy filtering lens. The method is based on the principle that some of the ELECTRONS passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The amount of energy loss is dependent upon the element. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum (ELECTRON ENERGY-LOSS SPECTROSCOPY) reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. It is used analytically and quantitatively to determine which, how much of, and where specific ELEMENTS are in a sample. For example, it is used for elemental mapping of PHOSPHORUS to trace the strands of NUCLEIC ACIDS in nucleoprotein complexes.
