Parameters for the attractive coefficient of the Patel-Teja-Valderrama equation of state
(Taylor & Francis LtdAbingdonInglaterra, 2003)
Accuracy of total energy expenditure predictive equations after a massive weight loss induced by bariatric surgery
Background and aims: Predictive equations remain the clinical tool of choice to estimate the energy expenditure, however, poor accuracy has been found when applied in patients with severe obesity. The aim of this study was ...
New body fat prediction equations for severely obese patients
(CHURCHILL LIVINGSTONE, 2008)
Background & aims: Severe obesity imposes physical limitations to body composition assessment. Our aim was to compare body fat (BF) estimations of severely obese patients obtained by bioelectrical impedance (BIA) and air ...
Heritability of predicted daily enteric methane emissions from growing Nellore cattle
The objective of this study was to estimate the heritability of predicted daily enteric methane emissions (PME) from growing Nellore cattle. Dry matter intake (DMI) records of 955 Nellore animals that were born between ...
Comparison of predictive equations for resting energy expenditure in overweight and obese adults
(Journal of Obesity, 2011)
Objective. To compare values from predictive equations of resting energy expenditure (REE) with indirect calorimetry (IC) in overweight and obese adults. Methods. Eighty-two participants aged 30 to 60 years old were ...
Poor agreement between predictive equations of energy expenditure and measured energy expenditure in critically ill acute kidney injury patients
Background: There are multiple equations for predicting resting energy expenditure (REE), but how accurate they are in severe acute kidney injury (AKI) patients is not clear. Our aim was to determine if predictive equations ...
Prediction of dry matter intake based on ruminal degradation from milking cows grazing coast-cross grass
(Fundação Estudos Agrarios Luiz Queiroz (fealq), 2001-01-01)
Dry matter intake (DMI) of coast-cross grazing by crossbred Holstein-Zebu and Zebu lactating cows was calculated using in vitro dry matter digestibility from extrusa (four esophageal fistulated cows) and fecal output ...
Predictive equations for stature in the elderly: A study in three Latin American cities
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2005-11)
Aim: The aim of this study was to develop predictive equations based on anthropometric data to estimate stature in people 60 years and older in Latin America. Design: Population-based cross-sectional study in three Latin ...
