They wanted to assess if, compared with the air method, the water method increased the proportion of patients being able to complete colonoscopy without sedation. They were also interested in comparing other variables in the two groups, such as the maximum discomfort experienced during colonoscopy (measured on a scale of 0 = ‘no discomfort’ to 10 = ‘severe discomfort’). One hundred veterans were randomised to the air (n = 50) or water (n = 50) method. A Fisher’s exact test indicated that the proportions of patients who could complete colonoscopy with out sedation in the water group (78%) and the air group (54%) were significantly different.
Lancet 2002; 360: 659–65. S20 There have been several review articles that have shown a relationship between shorter sleep duration and an increased risk of obesity in children. However, many of the studies included in these reviews were cross-sectional or were methodologically flawed, either because they failed to use objective measures of sleep duration or because they failed to take account of changes in sleep patterns over time. To determine the relation between serial measures of sleep and subsequent body composition in young children, Carter and colleagues (2011) conducted a longitudinal study of 244 children who were participating in a birth cohort (the Family Lifestyle, Activity, Movement and Eating (FLAME) study) in New Zealand.
