Bioimpedance spectroscopy is a noninvasive measurement tool that may offer advantages compared with conventional invasive cardiac measurements. Bioimpedance monitoring provides data needed to make treatment decisions that promote optimal cardiac performance. Transthoracic or whole-body impedance, are useful surrogate measures of intrathoracic or body fluid in patients with congestive heart failure.Tell me more
The kidneys play a vital role in maintaining normal tissue hydration and serum sodium level. In haemodialysis patients, with impaired or absent kidney function, fluid status is managed by removing excess fluid using ultrafiltration and by restricting dietary sodium intake. Ideally, haemodialysis patients should remain close to normal hydration throughout the interdialytic period, with minimal periods of excessive dehydration or fluid overload and with...Tell me more
Bioimpedance spectroscopy offers rapid, non-invasive, inexpensive determination of body composition by measuring fat-free mass, fat mass, intra, and extra cellular fluid. Long-term patient monitoring can provide a long term path to wellness.Tell me more
