The high-fat diet induced obese rats showed higher levels of serum PEDF as compared with the NC group (2.16 [+ or -] 0.09 versus 1.77 [+ or -] 0.14 [micro]g/mL, P < 0.05, Figure 2(a)), and a negative association was found between the serum PEDF concentration and glucose infusion rate
(r = -0.67, P < 0.05, Figure 2(b)).
TABLE 3: Insulin infusion rates
, steady state plasma insulin and glucose levels, and GIRs needed to maintain isoglycemia during the clamps used in Study 2.
Mean steady state plasma glucose values, glucose infusion rates
and insulin values obtained during the study are shown in Fig.
(30) In another study, the observed effective dose of thiopental needed to achieve the chosen end-point, of loss of consciousness, increased significantly with increasing infusion rates
. (31) There was a thirteen percent error in the predictions based on one model at the higher infusion rates
In preliminary experiments, the relationships between cumulative feed intakes over a 2 h period and infusion rates
of 12 to 20 ml/min of artificial mixed saliva were examined.
(9) However it must be noted that intermittent infusions (antibiotics, potassium, furosemide) and those with fluctuating infusion rates
should never be given via the same line as continuous infusions even when venous access is limited.
Steady state is defined for alcohol kinetics as the state where the rate of alcohol input (i.e., the infusion rate
of alcohol) is equal to the rate of alcohol elimination from the body.
Investigation of factors determining the optimal glucose infusion rate

In summary, a small dose and a slow infusion rate
resulted in complete devascularization of the tumor by microscopic ethanol-containing thromboemboli.
FIGURE 2 WEIGHT-BASED INTRAVENOUS HEPARIN NOMOGRAM Loading dose: 80 units/kg Initial maintenance dose: 18 units/kg/h Dosage adjustments by APTT level: <35 seconds 80 units/kg bolus, then increase infusion rate
by 4 units/kg/h 35-45 seconds 40 units/kg bolus, then increase infusion rate
by 2 units/kg/h 46-75 seconds No change 71-90 seconds Decrease infusion rate
by 2 units/kg/h >90 seconds Hold infusion 1 hour, the decrease infusion rate
by 3 units/kg/h APTT levels are drawn 6 hours after any dosage change and should be ordered every 24 hours until 2 consecutive APTTs therapeutic.
The infusion rate
between siblings has a 90% success rate.
The authors reported that the rapid infusion rate
of iron gluconate was associated with transferrin saturation values that exceeded 100%, a condition they termed transferrin "oversaturation."
