Twelve patients with DSM-III diagnoses of panic disorder and four normal volunteers were studied during hyperventilation of room air and increased ventilation stimulated by 5% CO2. Patients also underwent sodium lactate infusion. Eight of the patients had a panic attack during sodium lactate infusion, seven during CO2 inhalation, and three during room-air(More)
The effects of ventilatory apparatus on breathing pattern and gas exchange were studied in normal supine subjects. Using a canopy system, measurements of O2 consumption, CO2 production, tidal volume (VT), frequency (f), minute ventilation, mean inspiratory flow, and inspiratory, and expiratory time (TI and TE) were made and compared to data obtained with(More)
Total parenteral nutrition with hypertonic glucose/AA solutions given to eighteen nutritionally depleted patients resulted in a rise in the respiratory quotient (RQ) from 0.83 to 1.05 (p less than .001), while oxygen consumption (VO2) increased only 3%. Excess glucose in depleted patients was converted to fat as evidenced by an RQ greater than 1.0.(More)
The rate of breakdown and reutilization of urea in man has been measured in five normal and two septic patients using 15N and 13C labeled ureas. The labeled molecules of the 15N urea dose were distinguished from the labeled molecules of the recycled urea by analyzing in a mass spectrometer the isotopic nitrogens produced when the recrystalized urine urea(More)
The effect of sitting and supine posture on breathing patterns and gas exchange during room air breathing and administration of 2 and 4% CO2 was studied in nine normal subjects using a noninvasive canopy system. During air breathing minute ventilation (VE) was 21% (P less than 0.005) higher in the sitting position. Tidal volume (VT) and mean inspiratory(More)
This study explored open-ended responses regarding attributions underlying health appraisals made by older adults, resulting in five categories (physical health, attitudinal/behavioral, externally focused, health transcendence, nonreflective). The older the respondents, the less likely they were to focus on physical aspects of their health. Health optimists(More)
The role of daily caregiving stressors (hassles) and small caregiving satisfactions (uplifts) in the well-being of 60 family caregivers was investigated. Hassles and uplifts in 4 domains of caregiving were examined, and direct effects of hassles, uplifts on caregivers' social and psychological well-being, as well as the interactive and net effects of(More)
High glucose intakes given during administration of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) have been demonstrated to increase CO2 production. The workload imposed by the high CO2 production may precipitate respiratory distress in patients with compromised pulmonary function. Changes in CO2 production and O2 consumption induced by TPN using either glucose as the(More)
The present study was undertaken to determine intracellular amino acid patterns in patients with multiple trauma, whether or not complicated by sepsis and during convalescence. A percutaneous muscle biopsy was performed three to four days following major accidental injury in ten patients and analyzed for muscle free amino acids. Venous blood was drawn at(More)
Examined was a scale designed to assess the daily hassles of caring for a family member with Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Primary caregivers to AD patients (N = 60) completed the Caregiving Hassles Scale on two occasions and reported on their well-being. The 42-item scale provides a reliable and psychometrically sound instrument for assessing hassles(More)
