Correlation of Limb Bioimpedance to Echocardiographic Indicators of Congestion in Patients with NYHA Class II/III Heart Failure.

Preliminary findings demonstrated excellent correlations with BIS measurements and IVC size, right atrial pressure and pulmonary artery systolic pressure measurements which suggest a possible alternative method to detect fluid overload despite the small sample size. Trending a patient's impedance using the SOZO device at home or the practitioner's office may assist clinicians in providing more accurate, individualized HF care.
