BACKGROUND Little is known about the long-term evolution, nutrition status, growth, and eventual deficiencies of patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS) adapted to oral feeding after parenteral nutrition (PN). Because there are not absolute criteria for weaning from parenteral or enteral nutrition to oral feeding, new nutrient deficiencies may develop.(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of voluntarily controlled breathing maneuvers on breathing pattern components measured noninvasively with the respiratory inductive plethysmograph. In normal subjects, these maneuvers included predominantly thoracic and abdominal patterns with and without visual reinforcement from video-displayed plots of(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of a food aid program (Plan Más Vida, PMV) on the micronutrient nutritional condition of lactating mothers 1 year after its implementation. The food program provided supplementary diets (wheat- and maize-fortified flour, rice or sugar, and fortified soup) to low-income families from the province of Buenos(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of Plan Más Vida (PMV) on the micronutrient nutritional condition of children aged 1 to 6 years 1 year after PMV implementation. The food program was intended for low-income families from the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina and provided supplementary diets. A prospective, nonexperimental study was carried(More)
Both scalar tracings and XY plots of rib cage (RC) and abdominal (AB) excursions were analyzed to detect asynchronous and/or paradoxic motion of one compartment with respect to the other in an effort to distinguish differences between normal subjects and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). An inspiratory asynchrony index (IAI) was(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the percentage of palmitic acid at sn-2 position on triacylglycerols in infant formulas. We studied 6 infant formulas in the Argentinean market that are used as breast-milk substitutes during the first six months after delivery: 2 formulas with vegetable oils as basic source of lipids (F1, F2); 1 formula with milk fat(More)
Lethargy, poor attention, and the high rate and severity of infections in malnourished children affect their educational achievement. We therefore studied the association between visuomotor abilities and intelligence quotient (IQ) and their relationship with iron, zinc, and copper. A cross-sectional study was carried out on a sample of 89 healthy children(More)
BACKGROUND Bupivacaine is widely used for obstetric analgesia, yet published information on the mechanism of human placental bupivacaine transfer is sparse. The dual perfused human placental model was used to elucidate the factors governing the placental transfer of bupivacaine. METHODS Bupivacaine transfer was studied using the recirculating (closed)(More)
We assessed the accuracy of the respiratory inductive plethysmograph in the supine position to spirometry by the two-body position, least squares calibration and single-body position, isovolume calibration procedures. The comparison was carried out simultaneously in normal subjects breathing naturally and with voluntarily controlled abdominal or thoracic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate oro-cecal intestinal transit time (ITT) before and after administration of a dairy product containing Bifidobacterium BB12, Lactobacillus casei CRL 431 and fiber in healthy women. METHODS A prospective, randomised, double-blind and cross-over study with a 4-phase design (run-in: time 0 [T0], two intervention periods: time 1 [T1] and(More)
