The bicarbonate-urea method for measuring CO2 production was applied to eight free-living patients (mean age, 68 +/- 10 years; mean weight, 69 +/- 10 kg; mean height, 1.65 +/- 0.10 m) with unresectable small-cell lung cancer for a period of 1 day (n = 5) or 2 days (n = 3). The basal metabolic rate (BMR) was measured in all subjects. The technique was first validated against whole-body indirect calorimetry over an additional 24-hour period in five of these subjects. The bicarbonate-urea method...Expand abstract
