OBJECTIVES Hypotonic fluids are widely used in pediatrics. Several articles have reported the risk of iatrogenic hyponatremia secondary to this practice. We primarily intend to determine whether the use of isotonic fluids prevents hyponatremia and, secondly, whether these fluids increase the incidence of adverse events. STUDY DESIGN One hundred twenty-two(More)
The thermogenic response to food (TRF) and substrate oxidation were studied in 12 endurance-trained and 13 untrained female subjects. Energy expenditure and substrate oxidation were calculated by indirect calorimetry before and for 6 h after an oral test meal and after the same meal given intragastrically on a separate occasion. The TRF was calculated after(More)

BACKGROUND Due to the ageing of the general population and improved techniques, the acceptance rate of patients starting dialysis has increased. Mortality remains high and the factors involved include nutritional parameters, which also seem to be of value for prognosis in this population. SCOPE OF THE STUDY We proposed a prospective study in our(More)
