The Effect of When Medication is Taken on Nutritional Status in Hospitalized Patients Older Than 65 Years

Polypathology in elderly subjects requires polypharmacy but even though the efficacy of a medication and digestive tolerance are ensured, the medication can be taken a long time from meals to reduce its side-effects. Despite numerous studies that have investigated links between medication and malnutrition, none have assessed the influence of the time the drug is taken on the evolution of the nutritional status of elderly hospitalized persons. So as to identify the best nutritio...

It was a prospective observational study, where preoperative nutritional status and early postoperative complications

Nutritional Therapy for Stroke Patients

Prospective, short-term studies in patients admitted for acute stroke have shown an increased risk of infections, bedsores, impaired functional outcome, slower rate of recovery, poorer rehabilitation potential and higher mortality in patients with a poor nutritional status. In hospitals without routine nutritional assessment and individual nutrition management plans, the risk of patients developing malnutrition may be increased. In this study, patients admitted for acute stroke...

Risk of Bleeding and Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation: What Predictive Criterion Used?

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a rhythmic cardiac activity disorder disturbing hemodynamic blood flow. It is a public health problem with 600,000 to 1 million people involved in France which 2/3 are aged over 75 years. a FA untreated exposes the patient to a significant risk of embolism responsible for a rate stroke (stroke) ischemic estimated at 85%. The anticoagulant standard treatment helps prevent the occurrence of this complication. However, oral anticoagulation also exposes...

Incidence of Geriatric Syndromes Overlap

The overlap of depression and delirium as geriatric syndromes present in elderly patients with hospital admission due to hip fracture has been previously studied. Nevertheless, the relationships between these two clinical processes and other geriatric syndromes, especially malnutrition, have not been studied. For this reason, a prospective cohort study has been designed to know the differences in the incidence of geriatric syndromes during hospital admission due to hip fracture...

Nutritional Risk and Mucositis in Patients With Head and Neck Carcinoma Receiving Chemoradiation

This study is being conducted to define the specific nutritional biomarkers and nutritional risk during the course of chemoradiation therapy for cancers of the head and neck. This prospective, longitudinal observational study is focused on specific antioxidants and B vitamins. The ORAC was selected as an index of overall antioxidant capacity. We chose to evaluate antioxidant status because administering antioxidants has been shown to reduce chemotherapeutic agent toxicities.

GEriatric Determinants of Curative RAdiotherapy Scheme Choice for Breast Cancer ELderly Patient Treatment Compliance and Tolerance

This study proposes an onco geriatric evaluation (Activities of Daily Living, Instrumental Activities Of Daily Living, Mini Mental State Examination, mini Geriatric Depression Scale, Mini Nutritional Assessment, Cumulative Illness Rating Scale-Geriatric, and " timed get up and go " tests) for elderly breast cancer patients. The score obtained at this evaluation will determine the radiotherapy scheme.

Energy Dense Oleic Acid Formula to Geriatric Patients

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 ro...
