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)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of ineffective breathing pattern and the accuracy of its defining characteristics, among children and adolescents with congenital heart disease. BACKGROUND The NANDA International nursing diagnosis, ineffective breathing pattern, has been noted to have high prevalence in different(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the baseline prevalence and incidence rates of Impaired Gas Exchange (IGE), Ineffective Airway Clearance (IAC) and Ineffective Breathing Pattern (IBP) in children with acute respiratory infection. METHOD A prospective open cohort study was conducted in two public hospitals specialized in child care in the months from January to June(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To identify prognostic clinical indicators of short-term survival for ineffective breathing pattern in children with acute respiratory infection. BACKGROUND Despite the studies of survival for nursing diagnosis, there is not enough evidence about the clinical indicators that are associated with a worse prognosis for ineffective(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)
The identification of clinical indicators with good predictive ability allows the nurse to minimize the existing variability in clinical situations presented by the patient and to accurately identify the nursing diagnosis, which represents the true clinical condition. The purpose of this study was to analyze the accuracy of NANDA-I clinical indicators of(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. METHODS A diagnostic accuracy study was performed with 98 patients. Measures of sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, likelihood ratios, diagnostic odds ratio, and area under the ROC(More)
PURPOSE To determine the accuracy of NANDA-I defining characteristics for the nursing diagnosis, ineffective breathing pattern, in children with acute respiratory infection. METHODS This was a prospective cohort study in 136 children. Measures of accuracy were calculated for the defining characteristics. FINDINGS Use of accessory muscles to breathe(More)
OBJECTIVE to analyze the accuracy of the defining characteristics of the Impaired gas exchange nursing diagnosis in children with acute respiratory infection. METHOD open prospective cohort study conducted with 136 children monitored for a consecutive period of at least six days and not more than ten days. An instrument based on the defining(More)
