MELO, Célia Regina Maganha e  y  PERACOLI, José Carlos. Measuring the energy spent by parturient women in fasting and in ingesting caloric replacement (HONEY). Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2007, vol.15, n.4, pp.612-617. ISSN 1518-8345.

This research aims to measure the energy spending in parturient women of low gestation risk. Participants were selected randomly and submitted to fasting (n=15; Group I) or honey ingestion (n=15; Group II). Data were collected by means of capillary blood values and heart frequency monitoring. The paired t-test with a 5% significance level and Tukey's method were used in statistical analysis. The results showed that honey ingestion did not promote an overload in the mother's glucose; the lactate response demonstrated that the substrate offered was well used; the cardiorespiratory rate demonstrated good performance for both groups; the total energy spent during labor demonstrated that carbohydrate ingestion exerts significant influence, improving maternal anaerobic performance; the group which remained in fasting presented, immediately after labor, higher levels of lactate, showing the organism's efforts to compensate for the energy spent.

Palabras clave : honey; energy metabolism; lactic acid; blood glucose.
