Carbon-12 and carbon-13 are naturally-occurring isotopes that are found in exhaled breath. Investigators have proved that the 13CO2/12CO2 breath delta value (BDV) changes in subjects who were in negative energy balance then fed a positive energy balance meal. Measuring one liter of exhaled breath daily may be a more convenient way to measure negative or positive energy balance in patients receiving intravenous nutrition. Read More
