(n.) A species of cherry tree common in Europe (Prunus avium); also, the fruit, which is usually small and dark in color.
(a.) To accustom and reconcile, as a child or other young animal, to a want or deprivation of mother's milk; to take from the breast or udder; to cause to cease to depend on the mother nourishment.
(a.) Hence, to detach or alienate the affections of, from any object of desire; to reconcile to the want or loss of anything.
(n.) A weanling; a young child.
(1) Propofol is ideal for short periods of care on the ICU, and during weaning when longer acting agents are being eliminated.
(2) The number of gastrin-immunoreactive cells actually decreases just prior to weaning but then increases at and after, weaning.
(3) The patient and ventilator work ratios, and the work of breathing quantify factors which may be directly useful to the clinician and to future systems to automate weaning.
(4) Ten patients received intercostal nerve blockade on a total of 29 occasions in order to provide analgesia following liver transplantation and to facilitate weaning from artificial ventilation of the lungs.
(5) The processes of germination and gruel preparation of germinated materials contributed to the digestibility of weaning foods prepared from cereals and legumes.
(6) Although the reeler, an autosomal recessive mutant mouse with the abnormality of lamination in the central nervous system, died about 3 weeks of age when fed ordinary laboratory chow, this mouse could grow up normally and prolong its destined, short lifespan to 50 weeks and more when given assistance in taking paste food and water from the weaning period.
(7) During the weaning period after 18 h of mechanical ventilation following open-heart surgery, central haemodynamics, systemic oxygen transport and total oxygen consumption were assessed in a total of 11 patients receiving continuous positive pressure ventilation.
(8) Piglets from litters with post-weaning diarrhoea had reduced weight gains after weaning and were 2.3 days older at 25 kg bodyweight than piglets from non-diarrhoeic litters.
(9) In the first of two studies, we randomized 2-d-old miniature piglets to receive bottle-feedings of a swine weaning milk formula with (group F + I) or without (group F) the addition of insulin.
(10) In trial with adult wethers and weaned lambs the effect of enzymatic preparation Pektofoetidin G3x (mostly pectinase and cellulase) on rumen fermentation was studied.
(11) To study this further, 86 BB rats were divided into 2 groups during the weaning period (days 13-25): Group A received rat chow without CMP; Group B, rat chow with 1% CMP added.
(12) Thorough knowledge of the modes of ventilatory support and criteria for weaning are essential for the critical care nurse to anticipate patient needs.
(13) Pups were weaned either to the diet of their dam or to the diet fed to dams in the other treatment group in a crossover design.
(14) Chlamydia psittaci was believed responsible for an episode of high perinatal death loss in a swine herd in which 8.5 pigs per litter normally were weaned.
(15) A ten-year review of ventilator-dependent quadriplegic patients at Craig Rehabilitation Hospital was undertaken to determine the number of patients who could be weaned from mechanical ventilation and their long-term survival rate.
(16) Landrace sows lost less weight during lactation (P less than .05) when fed diet F than when fed diet N. The total number of pigs born, born alive, and alive at 21 d and at weaning were higher (P less than .01) for S-line Duroc sows, and litter size at 21 d and at weaning was higher (P less than .01) for S-line Landrace sows than for C-line litters within each breed.
(17) It is our belief that the reproductive and maternal capabilities of the colony-born females were adversely affected by the practice of removing neonates from their mothers at weaning and raising them with age-mates.
(18) Because nitrofen causes both malformations that are compatible with survival to weaning and a high incidence of perinatal (but not of fetal) mortality, emphasis was placed on postnatal parameters of bifenox toxicity.
(19) Cannon bone circumference at weaning was increased (P less than .05) by growth implants.
(20) There was an increase in both serum potassium concentration and erythrocyte count from five (weaning) to six weeks of age.
