Article Analysis 1

Assessment Description

The interpretation of research in health care is essential to decision making. By understanding research, health care providers can identify risk factors, trends, outcomes for treatment, health care costs and best practices. To be effective in evaluating and interpreting research, the reader must first understand how to interpret the findings. You will practice article analysis in Topics 2, 3, and 5.

For this assignment:

Search the GCU Library and find three different health care articles that use quantitative research. Do not use articles that appear in the topic Resources or textbook. Complete an article analysis for each using the “Article Analysis 1” template.

Refer to the “Patient Preference and Satisfaction in Hospital-at-Home and Usual Hospital Care for COPD Exacerbations: Results of a Randomised Controlled Trial,” in conjunction with the “Article Analysis Example 1,” for an example of an article analysis.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. A link to the LopesWrite technical support articles is located in Class Resources if you need assistance.

Point Description Description Description
Broad Topic Area/Title Observing behavior change in exercise and nutrition among pregnant women using current technology (smartphone application) Testing the implementation of caloric restriction and aerobic exercise effects on the proinflammatory metabolic milieu in patients with moderate to severe CKD The efficacy of the ketogenic diet during resistance training and its significance to weight loss
Identify Independent and Dependent Variables and the Type of Data for the Variables Independent variable: behavior change intervention (changes in diets and exercises)

Specific dietary and exercise advice supported by a tailor-designed smartphone application, and

Usual/routine care

Dependent Variable: Incidences of gestational diabetes Mellitus

Incidences of gestational diabetes mellitus between 28-39 weeks gestation.

 

Independent valuable: Diet  (caloric restriction) and exercises (aerobic exercises)

Caloric restriction and aerobic exercise,

Caloric restriction alone, Aerobic exercise alone

Usual care

Dependent variable: Metabolic effects of diet and exercise:

Absolute fat mass

Body weight

Plasma F2-isoprostane concentrations, and

Peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak)

 

Independent variable: behavior change (diet changes during energy surplus resistance training protocol)

Ketogenic diet

Resistance training protocol

Usual care

Dependent variable: Body composition

Fat mass

Visceral adipose tissue

Total body weight

Muscle mass

Lean body mass

Population of Interest for the Study Singleton pregnant women with body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 39.9 (overweight and obese women) Individuals with moderate to severe CKD The interest population is healthy men with more than two years of continuous experience in overload training.
Sample 565 women were recruited for the study

241 in the intervention group

257 in the control group

The study recruited 122 individuals who consented to the study

111 were randomized into the four intervention arms

94 participants completed the study

 

24 men were recruited in this study

KD group n=9

Non-KD group n=10

Control Grou n=5

Sampling Method A randomized sampling method was utilized for this study to select patients meeting the criteria. A random sampling method was applied in selecting and placing individuals into the various intervention groups. A randomized sampling method was utilized for this study to select patients meeting the criteria.
Descriptive Statistics (Mean, Median, Mode; Standard Deviation)

Identify examples of descriptive statistics in the article.

The mean age of the intervention group was 32.8, with a standards deviation of 4.6

The mean age of the control group was 32.1, with an SD of 4.1

The mean gestation period for the recruited women was 15.5 weeks

The mean age of the participants was 60, with an SD of 11 years.

The Mean baseline cystatin C–based estimate of GFR (eGFRcysC) was 41 with an SD of 18.6 mg/ml per 1.73 m

The interest population had a mean age of 30 with an SD of 4.7 years, a mean weight of  76.7 with an SD of 8.2kg, and a mean height of 174.3 with an SD of 19.7cm,
Inferential Statistics

Identify examples of inferential statistics in the article.

The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus:

37 of 241 (15.4%) in the intervention group and

36 of 257 (14.1%) in the control group (relative risk 1.1, 95% CI 0.71–1.66, P=.71).

The study showed that the behavioral intervention (smartphone application health support app) did not reduce the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus as hypothesized.

In intent-to-treat analyses, the intervention group produced a significant overall decrease in body weight compared to the usual care group (P=0.02 versus usual care).

In intent-to-treat analyses, the intervention groups F2-isoprostane concentrations decreased compared to the usual care group (P=0.01)

In intent-to-treat analyses, the intervention and usual care group has no statistica =l significant difference in peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak) (P=0.43 for overall treatment effect versus usual care; P=0.56 for caloric restriction versus usual diet; P=0.37 for exercise versus usual activity)

40 among 57 participants reported less than the assigned calorie intake level.

“All participants were within 20% of their assigned calorie intake (mean 10% less than assigned level, range, 65%–34%) except one participant (34% above assigned level)”

The body weight increased in the KD group (p < 0.05) but to a small size (ES = 0.18).

VAT only decreased markedly in the KD group (p < 0.05), showing a considered large effect (ES = − 0.84): only the  KD group showed a significant reduction (p < 0.05), expressing a medium effect (ES = − 0.46
