In: Frontiers in Physiology, 2019, vol. 10, p. -

Aim: Sharing a festive meal associated with alcohol is quite common. While the cardiovascular changes occurring after meal ingestion of different nutrient composition has been well-established, the effects of ingesting a festive versus a standard meal accompanied with alcohol are less clear. Here, we compared the postprandial hemodynamics, cutaneous and psychomotor performance responses after...

Early and late cardiovascular and metabolic responses to mixed wine: effect of drink temperature

Sarafian, Delphine ; Maufrais, Claire ; Montani, Jean-Pierre

In: Frontiers in Physiology, 2018, vol. 9, p. -

Aim: Red wine is usually ingested as an unmixed drink. However, mixtures of wine with juices and/or sucrose (mixed wine) are becoming more and more popular and could be ingested at either cold or hot temperature. Although the temperature effects on the cardiovascular system have been described for water and tea, with greater energy expenditure (EE) and lower cardiac workload with a colder...

Cardiovascular and metabolic responses to the ingestion of caffeinated herbal tea: drink it hot or cold?

Maufrais, Claire ; Sarafian, Delphine ; Dulloo, Abdul ; Montani, Jean-Pierre

In: Frontiers in Physiology, 2018, vol. 9, p. -

Tea is usually consumed at two temperatures (as hot tea or as iced tea). However, the importance of drink temperature on the cardiovascular system and on metabolism has not been thoroughly investigated. The purpose of this study was to compare the cardiovascular, metabolic and cutaneous responses to the ingestion of caffeinated herbal tea (Yerba Mate) at cold or hot temperature in healthy...

Cardiovascular and cutaneous responses to the combination of alcohol and soft drinks: the way to orthostatic intolerance?

Maufrais, Claire ; Charriere, Nathalie ; Montani, Jean-Pierre

In: Frontiers in Physiology, 2017, vol. 8, p. -

Aim. Acute ingestion of alcohol is often accompanied by cardiovascular dysregulation, malaise and even syncope. The full hemodynamic and cutaneous responses to the combination of alcohol and sugar (i.e. alcopops), a common combination in young people, and the mechanisms for the propensity to orthostatic intolerance are not well established. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the...

Myocardial function at the early phase of traumatic brain injury: a prospective controlled study

Cuisinier, Adrien ; Maufrais, Claire ; Payen, Jean-François ; Nottin, Stephane ; Walther, Guillaume ; Bouzat, Pierre

In: Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine, 2016, vol. 24, p. 129

The concept of brain-heart interaction has been described in several brain injuries. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) may also lead to cardiac dysfunction but evidences are mainly based upon experimental and clinical retrospective studies. Methods We conducted a prospective case-control study in a level I trauma center. Twenty consecutive adult patients with severe TBI were matched according to...
