Carotenoids are regarded as effective antioxidants, antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic agents. Annatto, a red-yellow extract obtained from seeds of Bixa orellana L. is a mixture of several carotenoids and one of them bixin (BXN), is known as its major coloring compound. Studies on BXN clastogenicity and anticlastogenicity in cultured human lymphocytes have(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the accuracy of the defining characteristics of impaired gas exchange (IGE). METHODS Cross-sectional study carried out in 93 cardiac postoperative adult patients. The 19 NANDA-I defining characteristics related to IGE were evaluated. FINDINGS Ten defining characteristics were found in the sample. The best accuracy values, including(More)

The aim of this study was to identify the defining characteristics that allow clinical differentiation of the nursing diagnoses, ineffective breathing pattern (IBP), ineffective airway clearance (IAC), and impaired gas exchange (IGE). A secondary analysis with a cohort design was developed from 1128 records obtained during the hospital stay of 136 children(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to analyze the accuracy of the defining characteristics of ineffective breathing pattern (IBP) in postoperative cardiac patients.
