Prior protein intake may affect phenylalanine kinetics measured in healthy adult volunteers consuming 1 g protein. kg-1. d-1. (1/2097)

Study of the amino acid metabolism of vulnerable groups, such as pregnant women, children and patients, is needed. Our existing protocol is preceded by 2 d of adaptation to a low 13C formula diet at a protein intake of 1 g. kg-1. d-1 to minimize variations in breath 13CO2 enrichment and protein metabolism. To expand on our potential study populations, a less invasive protocol needs to be developed. We have already established that a stable background 13CO2 enrichment can be achieved on the study day without prior adaptation to the low 13C formula. Therefore, this study investigates phenylalanine kinetics in response to variations in prior protein intake. Healthy adult subjects were each fed nutritionally adequate mixed diets containing 0.8, 1.4 and 2.0 g protein. kg-1. d-1 for 2 d. On d 3, subjects consumed an amino acid-based formula diet containing the equivalent of 1 g protein. kg-1. d-1 hourly for 10 h and primed hourly oral doses of L-[1-13C]phenylalanine for the final 6 h. Phenylalanine kinetics were calculated from plasma-free phenylalanine enrichment and breath 13CO2 excretion. A significant quadratic response of prior protein intake on phenylalanine flux (P = 0.012) and oxidation (P = 0.009) was identified, such that both variables were lower following adaptation to a protein intake of 1.4 g. kg-1. d-1. We conclude that variations in protein intake, between 0.8 and 2.0 g. kg-1. d-1, prior to the study day may affect amino acid kinetics and; therefore, it is prudent to continue to control protein intake prior to an amino acid kinetics study.  (+info)

Exhaled and nasal NO levels in allergic rhinitis: relation to sensitization, pollen season and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. (2/2097)

Exhaled nitric oxide is a potential marker of lower airway inflammation. Allergic rhinitis is associated with asthma and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. To determine whether or not nasal and exhaled NO concentrations are increased in allergic rhinitis and to assess the relation between hyperresponsiveness and exhaled NO, 46 rhinitic and 12 control subjects, all nonasthmatic nonsmokers without upper respiratory tract infection, were randomly selected from a large-scale epidemiological survey in Central Norway. All were investigated with flow-volume spirometry, methacholine provocation test, allergy testing and measurement of nasal and exhaled NO concentration in the nonpollen season. Eighteen rhinitic subjects completed an identical follow-up investigation during the following pollen season. Exhaled NO was significantly elevated in allergic rhinitis in the nonpollen season, especially in perennially sensitized subjects, as compared with controls (p=0.01), and increased further in the pollen season (p=0.04), mainly due to a two-fold increase in those with seasonal sensitization. Nasal NO was not significantly different from controls in the nonpollen season and did not increase significantly in the pollen season. Exhaled NO was increased in hyperresponsive subjects, and decreased significantly after methacholine-induced bronchoconstriction, suggesting that NO production occurs in the peripheral airways. In allergic rhinitis, an increase in exhaled nitric oxide on allergen exposure, particularly in hyperresponsive subjects, may be suggestive of airway inflammation and an increased risk for developing asthma.  (+info)

Orally exhaled nitric oxide levels are related to the degree of blood eosinophilia in atopic children with mild-intermittent asthma. (3/2097)

Increased levels of nitric oxide have been found in expired air of patients with asthma, and these are thought to be related to the airway inflammatory events that characterize this disorder. Since, in adults, bronchial inflammatory changes are present even in mild disease, the present study was designed to evaluate whether a significant proportion of children with mild-intermittent asthma could have increased exhaled air NO concentrations. Twenty-two atopic children (aged 11.1+/-0.8 yrs) with mild-intermittent asthma, treated only with inhaled beta2-adrenoreceptor agonists on demand and 22 age-matched controls were studied. NO concentrations in orally exhaled air, measured by chemiluminescence, were significantly higher in asthmatics, as compared to controls (19.4+/-3.3 parts per billion (ppb) and 4.0+/-0.5 ppb, respectively; p<0.01). Interestingly, 14 out of 22 asthmatic children had NO levels >8.8 ppb (i.e. >2 standard deviations of the mean in controls). In asthmatic patients, but not in control subjects, statistically significant correlations were found between exhaled NO levels and absolute number or percentage of blood eosinophils (r=0.63 and 0.56, respectively; p<0.01, each comparison). In contrast, exhaled NO levels were not correlated with forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) or forced expiratory flows at 25-75% of vital capacity (FEF25-75%) or forced vital capacity (FVC), either in control subjects, or in asthmatic patients (p>0.1, each correlation). These results suggest that a significant proportion of children with mild-intermittent asthma may have airway inflammation, as shown by the presence of elevated levels of nitric oxide in the exhaled air. The clinical relevance of this observation remains to be established.  (+info)

Salivary contribution to exhaled nitric oxide. (4/2097)

Dietary and metabolic nitrate is distributed from the blood to the saliva by active uptake in the salivary glands, and is reduced to nitrite in the oral cavity by the action of certain bacteria. Since it has been reported that nitric oxide may be formed nonenzymatically from nitrite this study aimed to determine whether salivary nitrite could influence measurements of exhaled NO. Ten healthy subjects fasted overnight and ingested 400 mg potassium nitrate, equivalent to approximately 200 g spinach. Exhaled NO and nasal NO were regularly measured with a chemiluminescence technique up to 3 h after the ingestion. Measurements of exhaled NO were performed with a single-breath procedure, standardized to a 20-s exhalation, at a flow of 0.15 L x s(-1), and oral pressure of 8-10 cmH2O. Values of NO were registered as NO release rate (pmol x s(-1)) during the plateau of exhalation. Exhaled NO increased steadily over time after nitrate load and a maximum was seen at 120 min (77.0+/-15.2 versus 31.2+/-3.0 pmol x s(-1), p<0.01), whereas no increase was detected in nasal NO levels. Salivary nitrite concentrations increased in parallel; at 120 min there was a four-fold increase compared with baseline (1.56+/-0.44 versus 0.37+/-0.09 mM, p<0.05). The nitrite-reducing conditions in the oral cavity were also manipulated by the use of different mouthwash procedures. The antibacterial agent chlorhexidine acetate (0.2%) decreased NO release by almost 50% (p<0.01) 90 min after nitrate loading and reduced the preload control levels by close to 30% (p<0.05). Sodium bicarbonate (10%) also reduced exhaled NO levels, but to a somewhat lesser extent than chlorhexidine acetate. In conclusion, salivary nitric oxide formation contributes to nitric oxide in exhaled air and a large intake of nitrate-rich foods before the investigation might be misinterpreted as an elevated inflammatory activity in the airways. This potential source of error and the means for avoiding it should be considered in the development of a future standardized method for measurements of exhaled nitric oxide.  (+info)

Increased exhaled nitric oxide on days with high outdoor air pollution is of endogenous origin. (5/2097)

The aim of this study was to assess the effect of outdoor air pollution on exhaled levels of endogenously released nitric oxide. To exclude bias from exogenous NO in the recovered exhaled air (residual NO or NO in dead volume) an experimental design was used that sampled NO of endogenous origin only. The validity of the presented experimental design was established in experiments where subjects were exposed to high levels of exogenous NO (cigarette smoke or 480 microg x m(-3) synthetic NO). Subsequent 1 min breathing and a final inhalation of NO-free air proved to be sufficient to attain pre-exposure values. Using the presented method detecting only endogenous NO in exhaled air, 18 subjects were sampled on 4 separate days with different levels of outdoor air pollution (read as an ambient NO level of 4, 30, 138 and 246 microg x m(-3)). On the 2 days with highest outdoor air pollution, exhaled NO was significantly (p<0.001) increased (67-78%) above the mean baseline value assessed on 4 days with virtually no outdoor air pollution. In conclusion, the level of endogenous nitric oxide in exhaled air is increased on days with high outdoor air pollution. The physiological implications of this findings need to be investigated further.  (+info)

LMR spectroscopy: a new sensitive method for on-line recording of nitric oxide in breath. (6/2097)

Laser magnetic resonance spectroscopy (LMRS) is a sensitive and isotope-selective technique for determining low concentrations of gaseous free radicals with high time resolution. We used this technique to analyze the nitric oxide (NO) concentration profile while simultaneously measuring the flow and expired volume during several single breathing cycles. Eight healthy, nonallergic volunteers were investigated. An initial NO peak was found in all breathing cycles before the NO concentration dropped to a relatively stable plateau in the late phase of expiration. The nasal NO peak was significantly higher than the oral NO peak. The nasal NO plateau was always higher than the oral NO plateau. The height of the initial nasal and oral NO peak rose with increasing duration of breath hold, whereas the late expiratory NO plateau changed only little for either the nasal or the oral breathing cycles. Our findings demonstrate, in line with other reports using other techniques, that the nose is the primary source for NO within the airways.  (+info)

Outcome of carotid artery occlusion is predicted by cerebrovascular reactivity. (7/2097)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of obtaining prognostic indications in patients with internal carotid occlusion on the basis of intracranial hemodynamic status, presence of previous symptoms of cerebrovascular failure, and baseline characteristics. METHODS: Cerebral hemodynamics were studied with transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. Cerebrovascular reactivity to apnea was calculated by means of the breath-holding index (BHI) in the middle cerebral arteries. Sixty-five patients with internal carotid artery occlusion were followed-up prospectively (median, 24 months), 23 patients were asymptomatic and 42 symptomatic (20 with transient ischemic attack and 22 with stroke). RESULTS: During the follow-up period, 11 symptomatic patients and 1 asymptomatic patient had another ischemic event ipsilateral to carotid occlusion. Among factors considered, only lower BHI values in the middle cerebral arteries ipsilateral to carotid occlusion and older age were significantly associated with the risk of developing symptoms (P=0.002 and P=0.003, respectively; Cox regression multivariate analysis). Based on our data, a cut point of the BHI value for distinguishing between pathological and normal cerebrovascular reactivity was determined to be 0.69. All patients except one, who developed TIA or stroke during the follow-up period, had BHI values ipsilateral to carotid occlusion of <0.69. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that impaired cerebrovascular reactivity is predictive for cerebral ischemic events in patients with carotid occlusion.  (+info)

Ontogeny of intestinal safety factors: lactase capacities and lactose loads. (8/2097)

We measured intestinal safety factors (ratio of a physiological capacity to the load on it) for lactose digestion in developing rat pups. Specifically, we assessed the quantitative relationships between lactose load and the series capacities of lactase and the Na+-glucose cotransporter (SGLT-1). Both capacities increased significantly with age in suckling pups as a result of increasing intestinal mass and maintenance of mass-specific activities. The youngest pups examined (5 days) had surprisingly high safety factors of 8-13 for both lactase and SGLT-1, possibly because milk contains lactase substrates other than lactose; it also, however, suggests that their intestinal capacities were being prepared to meet future demands rather than just current ones. By day 10 (and also at day 15), increased lactose loads resulted in lower safety factors of 4-6, values more typical of adult intestines. The safety factor of SGLT-1 in day 30 (weanling) and day 100 (adult) rats was only approximately 1.0. This was initially unexpected, because most adult intestines maintain a modest reserve capacity beyond nutrient load values, but postweaning rats appear to use hindgut fermentation, assessed by gut morphology and hydrogen production assays, as a built-in reserve capacity. The series capacities of lactase and SGLT-1 varied in concert with each other over ontogeny and as lactose load was manipulated by experimental variation in litter size.  (+info)

This study compared three methods of breath sampling for assessment of exposure to volatile organic chemicals. Eleven healthy volunteers were exposed to four of these five chemicals: ethanol, acetone, methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), toluene, and halothane. After exposure, venous blood and mixed-exhaled breath, end-exhaled breath, and rebreathed gas were sampled ten times in four hours. The relationship between the concentrations of these chemicals in blood and each type of breath were calculated by linear regression. The calculated blood/gas partition coefficients and the goodness of fit for each breath sampling method were compared in order to evaluate which type of breath sample could best be used to predict blood concentrations. The effect of carbon dioxide correction and the effect of lung function on this relationship were investigated. Rebreathed gas concentrations predicted blood concentrations as well as end-exhaled concentrations and in most cases better than mixed-exhaled concentrations ...

Abstract Breath hydrogen tests were performed after a rice meal (3 g of cooked rice/kg of body weight, equivalent to 1 g of carbohydrate/kg of body weight) on 256 village children (age range 1-59 months) who were known hydrogen (H2) producers. Anthropometric measurements were made every three months and growth rates were calculated. A breath H2 excretion pattern that suggested small bowel bacterial overgrowth (SBBO), which was recognized as a transient maximum level of 10 ppm or more at 20-, 40-, or 60-min breath samples following the rice meal, was present in 53 (20.7%) children, and was more frequent in children 36-47 and 48-59 months old. This breath H2 excretion pattern was detected in 48 (33.3%) of 144 children who were rice malabsorbers (> 10 ppm H2 above baseline values in one of the breath samples taken between 90 and 240 min), and in only five (4.5%) of 112 rice absorbers. Children who had SBBO had a high relative risk (10.7) of being rice malabsorbers. Rice malabsorbers have a high relative

Prior to the Melendez-Diaz ruling, state law permitted the District Attorney to admit breath or blood test results by a simple affidavit. The person who administered the breath test would never testify. The chemical analysis of a blood result or breath test was submitted on paper and defense attorneys were not given the opportunity to cross examine the witnesses that performed these crucial tests. A defense attorney could always subpoena the witnesses themselves, but many felt they shouldnt have to. The US Supreme Court essentially agreed and stated in the Melendez-Diaz opinion that the burden "is on the prosecution to present its witnesses, not on the defendant to bring those adverse witnesses into court." Remember, when a person is accused of a crime, it is the prosecutions burden to prove every element of an offense and everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Prior to this case, I felt the law permitting a blood or breath test result admissible by affidavit essentially shifted ...
This study investigated whether or not there was an overall difference in the pulmonary oxidative marker, 8-isoprostane (PGF2-a), found in exhaled breath condensate, during pregnancy versus the non-pregnant state. The utility of this information was important secondary to the effect of maternal asthma on pregnancy and outcome, as it has been demonstrated in past studies that overall pregnant females with asthma have been shown to have an increased risk of exacerbation requiring medical intervention.The primary goal of this study sought to determine if there is a difference in PGF2a levels in the exhaled breath condensate of pregnant versus non-pregnant females. In order to achieve this goal a cross-sectional study was performed consisting of two groups and were compared to one another. A group of 16 healthy, non-pregnant females aged 18-35 years old was compared to a group of 6 healthy, pregnant females in their third trimester of pregnancy. Both groups exhaled breath condensate was collected and 8
A simple breath test can be done in the office to test for bacterial overgrowth. The overproduction of gasses such as hydrogen is absorbed through the bloodstream and excreted through the lungs.

The GEBT is measured over a 4-hour time cycle. Detailed administration instructions can be found in Table 1. Multiple breath samples are obtained from the patient; sampling should be performed subsequent to an 8-hour fast. After providing multiple premeal breath samples (Table 2), the patient consumes the standard GEBT meal consisting of pasteurized scrambled egg mix containing a dose of 43 mg of 13C-Spirulina, 6 saltine crackers, and 6 ounces of potable water.5 The 13C-Spirulina is eventually passed through the GI tract to the intestines; it is in the intestines that the Spirulina is absorbed and metabolized to the 13CO2 expired in the breath. Single postmeal breath samples are subsequently collected (Table 2) at 45, 90, 120, 150, 180, and 240 minutes from the end of test-meal consumption. The post-meal breath samples are transmitted to a laboratory for assessment of 13CO2/12CO2 in each sample. By measuring the change in this ratio over time as compared to the pre-meal value, the rate of 13CO2 ...

The Olympian. Evidence in drunken driving cases across the state are likely to be challenged because of questions about the states toxicology lab managers role in checking breath analyzers, defense attorneys say.. The Washington State Patrol and prosecutors say the former managers failure to personally check batches of a solution used in breath analyzers has no effect on the machines accuracy, because other analysts did test the solution.. But the lab manager, Ann Marie Gordon, signed an undetermined number of legal certificates since 2002 saying she had checked the solution. It is used by police officers to confirm their machines are accurately measuring the amount of alcohol in a persons breath..

Various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath exhaled by patients with lung cancer, healthy controls, and patients with lung cancer who underwent surgery for resection of cancer were analyzed by gas condenser-equipped gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) for development of an exhaled breath monitoring prototype system involving metal oxide gas sensors, a gas condenser, and gas chromatography columns. The gas condenser-GC/MS analysis identified concentrations of 56 VOCs in the breath exhaled by the test population of 136 volunteers (107 patients with lung cancer and 29 controls), and selected four target VOCs, nonanal, acetoin, acetic acid, and propanoic acid, for use with the condenser, GC, and sensor-type prototype system. The prototype system analyzed exhaled breath samples from 101 volunteers (74 patients with lung cancer and 27 controls). The prototype system exhibited a level of performance similar to that of the gas condenser-GC/MS system for breath analysis.

To practice mindfulness breathing, sit in a comfortable cross legged position with the spine straight. Begin to focus on the breath, be aware as it goes in and out of the nostrils. Keep your attention on the tip of your nose or your upper lip. Bring your awareness to connect to the first moment of the beginning in breath. Do not try and change the breath, just be with it exactly as it is and observe. It is difficult at the beginning to keep one hundred percent of attention on the in and out breath as you will find that your mind is full of distractions. When a thought, emotion or feeling (physical sensation), image or sound distracts you; recognize it but then let it go and bring your focus back to the simple in and out of the breath. Begin at first to keep full attention for the duration of that one in breath. Connect again at the very beginning of the out breath and follow it to the end. Feel the one breath fully. Once you have sustained the attention one breath then do one more and so on. ...
Its been demonstrated that malabsorption of lactose, fructose and/or sorbitol has an analogous frequency in patients with IBS than in healthful subjects [27, 28]. Importantly, its also been proven that in IBS sufferers with modest bowel bacterial overgrowth (SBBO), sugar breath tests could be falsely irregular [29]. An irregular lactulose HBT was found in children with useful gastrointestinal indications and additional investigation is proposed to rule out the underlying bring about (e.g. accelerated intestinal transit or SBBO) [30]. Nevertheless, we didnt systematically display screen provided individuals for SBBO and we excluded patients with an presently set up diagnosis of SBBO. On top of that, integrated people underwent HBT to the track record of Long-term/recurrent abdominal pain and included individuals did not have a longtime prognosis of IBS. It would be worthwhile to investigate the hyperlink between IBS, SBBO and HBT in foreseeable future experiments in additional depth. Even so, ...

When and how often laboratory tests are done may depend on many factors. The timing of laboratory tests may rely on the results or completion of other tests, procedures, or treatments. Lab tests may be performed immediately in an emergency, or tests may be delayed as a condition is treated or monitored. A test may be suggested or become necessary when certain signs or symptoms appear. Due to changes in the way your body naturally functions through the course of a day, lab tests may need to be performed at a certain time of day. If you have prepared for a test by changing your food or fluid intake, lab tests may be timed in accordance with those changes. Timing of tests may be based on increased and decreased levels of medications, drugs or other substances in the body. The age or gender of the person being tested may affect when and how often a lab test is required. Chronic or progressive conditions may need ongoing monitoring through the use of lab tests. Conditions that worsen and improve may ...

Assessment of the correlation and ratio between the venous blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and the breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) measured in adult emergency care patients. The BrAC was measured with a breathalyzer prototype based on infrared spectroscopy, which uses the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) in the exhaled air as a quality indicator.. Result. Eighty-eight patients enrolled (mean 45 years, 53 men, 35 women) performed 201 breath tests in total. For 51% of the patients ...
Diagnostic tests for some conditions affecting cattle, such as tuberculosis, are often expensive and required over a prolonged period, so that the diagnostic tests involve more than one visit by a qualified vet. An alternative rapid and non-invasive diagnostic test would be desirable. One possibility is the use of breath testing, which has been shown to have diagnostic potential in humans. The development of a device for taking a representative breath sample from a bovine animal is described. Six devices using different configurations were assessed, over three separate testing days, for their ability to take a representative breath sample which does not cause undue stress to the animal and for the ease of operator use. The main factor affecting the sample integrity was dead space, however temperature also played a role. The best samples causing the least stress to animals were taken using a nostril sampler. The nostril samplers were then used to take breath samples from cattle with and without ...
Background:. Head-and-neck cancer (HNC) is the eighth most common malignancy worldwide. It is often diagnosed late due to a lack of screening methods and overall cure is achieved in ,50% of patients. Head-and-neck cancer sufferers often develop a second primary tumour that can affect the entire aero-digestive tract, mostly HNC or lung cancer (LC), making lifelong follow-up necessary.. Methods:. Alveolar breath was collected from 87 volunteers (HNC and LC patients and healthy controls) in a cross-sectional clinical trial. The discriminative power of a tailor-made Nanoscale Artificial Nose (NA-NOSE) based on an array of five gold nanoparticle sensors was tested, using 62 breath samples. The NA-NOSE signals were analysed to detect statistically significant differences between the sub-populations using (i) principal component analysis with ANOVA and Students t-test and (ii) support vector machines and cross-validation. The identification of NA-NOSE patterns was supported by comparative analysis of ...

This will involve reviewing the method by and the conditions under which the substance came to be in the breath in the first place, as well as any relevant biochemical or toxicological data about X that may be available. For instance, if the subjects breath alcohol reading is more than 10mg/100ml above the legal driving limit, and the relative infrared absorption coefficient between X and ethanol is 10:1, could the subject realistically have had 100mg/100ml of X in his breath at that time? Is such a level above the fatal level of X? Toluene and white spirit are each used in various industrial processes and each absorbs infrared light at 3.4 microns. But humans do not exhale significant amounts of either, except after solvent abuse or in the unlikely but potentially fatal scenario of consumption. Where, however, a subject has been exposed to such vapours during the course of some occupational process, then the breath level during and immediately after exposure will be the same as the ...
Recently my Mom returned from the doctor. She was incredulous about what he had told her. He had told her she was breathing wrong. My Mom looked at me and said, "Who wouldnt know how to breath?". I was also watching a kids show with my youngest son shortly after that. One of the characters was depicted as being so stupid that he would periodically forget to breath and would turn blue forcing his companion to remind him to, "Breath, Stupid"!. We all know how to breath, right? It pretty much comes naturally….doesnt it? The devil is in the details. We may know how to breath, but breathing properly during exercise is important. I have learned a great deal on this subject over the years and this little article wont do the subject justice, but maybe it will get you thinking.. First of all, I was taught at a young age to "suck that gut in" and breath with your chest. I recall at one time watching a video of Jack LaLanne saying just that. When I was in the military I was constantly told to pull ...
... (Compiled from Various Sources). No science that explains life is so parsimonious, grand and complete as the science of breath. Breath is the inseparable power of the universal life force, the prana. The prana, when present in human beings, gives birth to breath. It is this universal force that breathed forth or exhaled the universe, and, that will in the end, inhale the universe back into itself. In its extent and scope, breath (prana) is as incomprehensible as the ocean of infinity. The word prana comes from Sanskrit root pra meaning first and na meaning the smallest unit of energy. So the prana itself means the first breath. Prana is the force that governs all the actions or all the actions are merely an aspect of prana. It is the life principle, the dynamic force in human beings and all living forms. When prana is in motion consciousness arises. The greater consciousness, light, wisdom and truth, which are all-pervading but latent, are awakened by regulating the ...
The appeal of exhaled breath gas as a potential source of novel respiratory biomarkers is clear. It provides an inexhaustible source of a medium that can be sampled noninvasively, and one that has been in direct contact with the organ of interest. Targeting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) allows us to see even deeper: these small molecules diffuse across barriers and hence breath sampling also captures VOCs from the pulmonary interstitium, the circulation and beyond. Whilst analytical chemists, engineers, and a few forward-thinking clinical researchers have been exploring the breath volatilome since the early 1970s, it is only in the last decade or so that clinical interest has really grown [1-6]. There are probably two main reasons for the slow speed of uptake. First, the medium is extremely complex, and the source of VOCs difficult to define. The air we breathe out contains VOCs from three main sources: the external environment (either inhaled or absorbed through the skin or via ingestion) ...
24 Hr Jail Release: (214) 403-6522. The jury returned a not guilty verdict in a case where client provided a breath sample registering three one hundredths of a percentage point under the legal limit. Under Texas law a person may be convicted of DWI under any one of three definitions: (1) not having the normal use of mental faculties, (2) not having the normal use of physical faculties, or (3) being over the legal limit of 0.08. Naturally, the prosecution focused heavily on the first two definitions but also alluded to the fact that the breath score could have been much higher at driving took place. But for the foresight to be armed with authoritative scholarly articles, the scientific "expert" for the prosecution would have had carte blanche to convince the jury that this was precisely the case. Ultimately, it came down to what the client looked like on the squad car video. By the verdict, it was clear the jurors attributed mishaps on the field sobriety test to clients old age - a circumstance ...
For my next point, lets give the machine the benefit of the doubt and assume that it can accurately measure the quantity of alcohol in a persons breath. Even then, the machine makes a critical and troublesome assumption: that the subjects partition rate is 1:2100 (recall from above that this means that the amount of alcohol in one part of blood is equal to the amount of alcohol in 2100 parts of breath). This assumption is not true across the population, as studies show that partition rates of normal people vary from 1:1100 to 1:3000.. As an illustration, lets take a hypothetical subject arrested for DWI and call her Sue. She has a partition rate of 1:1100, which means that the number of grams of alcohol in 1 part of Sues blood is the equivalent of the number of grams of alcohol in 1100 parts of her breath. On this particular evening, Sue has consumed enough alcohol that her BAC is .06 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood. Since her partition rate is 1:1100, there would also be .06 ...

The volumes of both TEW and EBC increased significantly with Vm. The volume of EBC varied between 627 μl and 1358 μl for a 6 minute collection in the Vm range 7.5-22.5 l/min. This indicates that, for this collection device with subjects breathing at a typical resting Vm of 10 l/min, a 6 minute collection would generate a sample of approximately 900 μl. The volume of TEW was significantly higher than the volume of EBC throughout the Vm range studied. This indicates that the condenser efficiency is far from 100% (range 40-29%). It would be reasonable to suppose that this inefficiency also applies to the trapping of aerosolised droplets and that a device with improved efficiency would yield an increased quantity of solutes, thereby enhancing the sensitivity of this technique. A mean reduction of 962 ml in Vt was associated with a 15% reduction in TEW for the same Vm; however, no corresponding effect was seen on solute dilution. This would imply that, at lower Vt, proportionally less solute is ...
A far higher proportion of motorists are failing drink-drive tests in spring than over the Christmas and new year period, figures show.. New Government data reveal that December has by far the lowest percentage of positive drink-drive tests or refusals to take a breath test.. The figures relating to 2009 show that in March, the number of drivers found over the legal alcohol limit or refusing to be breath tested was as high as 17%. The April 2009 figure was 16%, as was the May figure.. This compares with just 5% of drivers failing tests in December 2009, when almost 190,000 drink-drive tests were conducted.. Fewer than 47,000 breath tests were carried out in each of March and April 2009.. Overall, the Home Office figures showed:. :: In 2009, a total of 813,288 breath tests were carried out - 14% more than in 2008.. :: The number of positive tests in 2009 increased by 3% on the 2008 total.. :: With more tests carried out in 2009 than in the previous year, the proportion of positive or failed tests ...

One area where smart sensor systems may have a significant health care impact is in the area of breath analysis.. Breath analysis techniques offer a potential revolution in health care ...
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of blood and exhaled breath from patients with cancer and from healthy participants to study in the laboratory
The method for flow triggering breath supported ventilation is accomplished by providing a system comprising a source of a predetermined, preinspiratory, constant flow of breathing gas and connecting such to a patient breathing attachment. One or more flow sensors measure the gas flow rate in a flow path communicating with the patient breathing attachment, determining when inhalation from the flow path has occurred. Breath support is generated in the delivered gas flow in response to inhalation by the patient, and the predetermined, preinspiratory, continuous flow of breathing gas is reestablished prior to the patients next inspiratory effort. In combination with various types of breath support, the flow triggering strategy of the invention offers significant improvements in providing breath support to patients having weakened respiratory capabilities.
Difficulty dyhanie- is a violation of the right frequency and rhythm of inhalation and yield, which is accompanied by feelings of lack of air.Shortness of breath - a form like breathing, which is characterized by high-pitched sound (whistling noise) during inspiration.It can result from disorders of the units responsible for the implementation of this process: the cortex, muscles of the chest, the cardiovascular system, and respiratory center aperture.In the absence of disorders of the nervous regulation of breath shortness of breath is compensatory in nature, with which it makes up for the lack of oxygen and removes excess carbon dioxide.. Shortness of breath has several main reasons: ...
A 41-year-old black woman presents to the emergency department (ED) with a 5-day history of increasing shortness of breath along with a mild, nonproductive cough. She denies having any fever, chills, chest pain, or palpitations. No sick contacts are identified, and she denies any recent travel. On further questioning, the patient reports that she first experienced shortness of breath 1 year ago, and that it has been gradually progressive since then. Her shortness of breath has particularly worsened over the last 5 days, to the point that it is limiting her daily activities; this has prompted her to come to the ED. She does not attribute the shortness of breath to any precipitating event. Her past medical history is significant for asthma and hypertension, as well as for several episodes of presumed bronchitis/pneumonia last year; she recalls being treated with antibiotics as an outpatient by her primary care provider. She also has a history of heavy menstrual periods, for which she has been on ...

A person s breath can tell you whether they are fans of garlic or if they regularly chew gum. But according to researchers at UC, it can also help uncover problems in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Testing for drug use and disease in humans could soon be much simpler, thanks to new Swedish research. Whereas drug tests currently rely on blood or urine samples, researchers from the University of Gothenburg have identified a method for drug testing by analyzing various compounds in exhaled breath.
Intrigued by the concept of using breath analysis to detect cancer, McCann saw an opportunity to use mid-infrared laser technology to help elucidate the relationship between specific gas phase biomarker molecules and cancer. He believes it is possible to develop easy-to-use detection devices for cancer, particularly for hard-to-detect cancers like lung cancer. McCann says we need sensors that detect these gas phase cancer biomarkers. "A device that measures cancer specific gases in exhaled breath would change medical research, as we know it." McCann says the science and technology exist to support the development of a new tool to detect cancer, but the research will take from five to 10 years to get low-cost devices into the clinic. OU may have the strongest contingent of researchers dedicated to providing a solution to the problem using this approach. Even though studies confirm that dogs can detect cancer by smelling the gases, they cant tell us what gases they smell. Its up to the medical ...

After you are placed under arrest an officer MUST give you an ADMONISHMENT or an option for a chemical blood or breath test. As a California license holder you have given your implied consent previously to submit to a chemical breath or blood test if you are arrested for a DUI.

An officer must give you an option for a breath test or a blood test unless they have reasonable cause to believe that you are under the influence of drugs or the combined influence of drugs and alcohol. This option is important because if blood was demanded from you, and you were not given a choice, the subsequent issue becomes whether the officer obtained a warrant to obtain your blood.

As soon as able wean the rate in steps of 5 breaths. Provided the patient is triggering breaths at or above the set rate then all you will be doing is swapping a big breath with a guaranteed Ti and tidal volume/Pressure for a smaller Pressure Support breath.. Once you have reached a rate of 5 breaths per minute the next step is to switch the patient to PS CPAP (the patient will already be mostly on PS CPAP as only 5 of their breaths will be big breaths and all other breaths will be PS breaths. When switching to PS CPAP, keep the pressure support and PEEP set the same as it was on the previous mode.. Wean the PS in steps of 2 till a pressure of 6 cmH2O is reached. Wean PEEP to 6 cmH2O. If the patient is stable on PS CPAP ON 6/6 (peak pressure of 12) and there are no contraindications a trial of extubation can be considered.. You dont need to wait till a certain point in the patients admission to start to wean them and can start weaning straight away (I would encourage you to ask ...

You commit Boating Under the Influence (BUI) if you operate, or are in control (even if parked, and not moving) of a watercraft while your blood or breath alcohol concentration is at .08 or greater, or you are under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, legal or illegal, to a level that renders you incapable of safely operating a watercraft. In other words, even without a chemical test, if the arresting authority can convince a judge or jury that you were drunk, you can be convicted. If a blood or urine test result shows that you have ANY cannabis or controlled substance in your body you can be convicted. Remember that even if the drug in your system was prescribed, you can still be found guilty of BUI if it affects your ability to control the watercraft..

Breath hydrogen excretion over a period of three hours was measured to evaluate carbohydrate malassimilation in healthy cats treated orally with antibiotics. Both an absorbable carbohydrate (xylose) and a non-absorbable carbohydrate (lactulose) were administered during the tests to evaluate the changes in the intestinal mucosa and the population of bacteria within the intestinal lumen. Overall, the effects of oxytetracycline and metronidazole on breath hydrogen excretion were not significantly different. However, the treatment effect with an antibiotic did significantly change breath hydrogen excretion after xylose administration (P<0.05) within groups. Similarly, with each antibiotic, breath hydrogen excretion was affected significantly (P<0.001) by the time after the administration of the carbohydrate. Treatment with each antibiotic also interacted significantly with this time effect (P<0.05) within groups. After lactulose administration, there was a trend within groups for the ...
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive loss of motor neurons. However, ALS has been recognized to also involve non-motor systems. Subclinical involvement of the autonomic system in ALS has been described. The recently developed C-13-octanoic acid breath test allows the noninvasive measurement of gastric emptying. With this new technique we investigated 18 patients with ALS and 14 healthy volunteers. None of the patients had diabetes mellitus or other disorders known to cause autonomic dysfunction. The participants received a solid standard test meal labeled with C-13-octanoic acid. Breath samples were taken at 15-min intervals for 5 h and were analyzed for (CO2)-C-13 by isotope selective nondispersive infrared spectrometry. Gastric emptying peak time (t(peak)) and emptying half time (t(1/2)) were determined. All healthy volunteers displayed normal gastric emptying with a mean emptying t(1/2) of 138 +/- 34 (range 68-172) min. Gastric ...

Lactose intolerance occurs immediately after birth in premature children, while the disorder in other children does not usually manifest before age of three. Digestive problems are similar like in adults - diarrhea, abdominal and stomach cramps, constipation, bloating, gas, nausea, fatigue. If you suspect that your child suffers from lactose intolerance, dietary him for two weeks discard all milk products, including foods that contain milk, and then gradually introduce them in small quantities. If all the signs indicate that lactose intolerance is there, be sure to take your child to a doctor, who will probably suggest that you do a breath test after a meal with lactose or to do a pH test of stool. When the diagnosis of the disorder is set, young children need to fully exclude from the diet foods that contain lactose, while older children can take it in small quantities, or in combination with other foods, not isolated. Infants and young children instead of cows milk can consume hypoallergenic ...

February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month so its the perfect time to learn more about lactose intolerance and the questions and misconceptions related to it. I was so fortunate to be a part of the National Dairy Councils (NDC) Lactose Intolerance Google + Hangout discussion in December with 4 parent bloggers besides myself and experts Karen Kafer, registered dietitian with the National Dairy Council and Bob Murray, pediatric gastroenterologist with a background in Geriatric GI and nutrition. The reason for the discussion was to learn the difference between lactose intolerance and a milk allergy and the proper questions to ask our childrens pediatricians or our own doctors as well as how to diagnose lactose intolerance and diary management strategies. It was fabulous information! I have been thinking for over a year that my youngest son, Zachary, is lactose intolerant, but after this conversation, I dont think so. Here are the videos for our conversation on how to test for lactose ...
Lactose intolerance (LI) is a common medical problem with limited treatment options. The primary symptoms are abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, and cramping. Limiting dairy foods to reduce symptoms contributes to low calcium intake and the risk for chronic disease. Adaptation of the colon bacteria to effectively metabolize lactose is a novel and potentially useful approach to improve lactose digestion and tolerance. RP-G28 is novel galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS) being investigated to improve lactose digestion and the symptoms of lactose intolerance in affected patients. A randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled study was conducted at 2 sites in the United States. RP-G28 or placebo was administered to 85 patients with LI for 35 days. Post-treatment, subjects reintroduced dairy into their daily diets and were followed for 30 additional days to evaluate lactose digestion as measured by hydrogen production and symptom improvements via a patient-reported symptom assessment
