Body Composition Monitor

Table 3 Model for OH in dialysis patients. This gave the possibility of making BCM measurements across a gresenius of paths and also allowed the isolation of individual segments for measurement see figure 1. Segmental bioelectrical impedance analysis. Sample size Pilot work comparing BCM measurements from hand-to-hand and from hand-to-foot showed standard deviations of the mean difference fresenuis OH of around 1. Pilot work comparing BCM measurements from hand-to-hand and from hand-to-foot showed standard deviations of the mean difference in OH of around 1.

Furthermore, the consistency of LTM and ATM from the start to end of dialysis was assessed based on the effect of measurement time in each of the mixed-effects models.

Probing the dry weight by bioimpedance: Fluid management is an important part of care for haemodialysis patients Fdesenius et al.

Haemodialysis patients showed different pre-dialysis patterns than subjects with normal renal function. Despite the good agreement between change in BCM-measured OH and change in weight, the model for OH did suggest there was a degree of ultrafiltration induced changes in fluid distribution, with a larger change in the ffesenius limbs than the upper.

However, dialysis has been shown to perturb fluid distributions Shulman et al. All BCM measurements were checked visually for artefacts, and repeated until the difference in measured OH was no greater than 0.

If relative changes in R E over dialysis are used to indicate changes in fluid status, it can be seen that the greatest relative change is in the leg segments table 5. The effect of arteriovenous fistulae in haemodialysis patients on whole body and segmental bioelectrical impedance.

Please review our privacy policy. BCM-measured OH is greater when measuring across a site of vascular access, but the increase arguably is not clinically freenius when the uncertainty in other methods of target weight gcm is considered.

However, the effect mean: Statistical analysis To investigate the validity of post-dialysis measurements, the agreement between change in BCM-measured OH from the reference path and change in weight was assessed using Bland-Altman analysis. There is growing evidence that the use of bioimpedance measurements with the body composition monitor BCM; Fresenius Medical Care, Germany can help guide fluid management and improve outcomes Moissl et al.

Assessing fluid change in hemodialysis: There are also a number of situations where it would be helpful to make post-dialysis BCM measurements. Freseinus patients showed similar results other than having higher BCM-measured OH when measured across the site of a vascular access.

The evidence supporting this recommendation comes from studies using different bioimpedance with different analysis techniques to the BIS used in the BCM. Clinical journal of the American Society of Nephrology: A larger sample would bfm better estimates of these different estimates.

The American journal of clinical nutrition. Use of post-dialysis measurements There was good agreement between change in BCM-measured OH on the reference measurement path [pre-dialysis OH] — [post-dialysis OH] with change in weight fig.

To investigate the validity of post-dialysis measurements, the agreement between change in BCM-measured OH from the reference path and change in weight was assessed using Bland-Altman analysis. Using the 8-lead BCM, the impedances of each limb individually can be isolated figure 1which can support the results of the regression models. Changing from a whole-body measurement to a hand-to-hand or cross measurement will involve substitution of one limb for another and a change in the pathway through the trunk.

Bioimpedance measurements with the Body Composition Monitor BCM have been shown to improve fluid management in haemodialysis. A whole-body model to distinguish excess fluid from the hydration of major body tissues.

Methods Subjects Ethical approval was granted by a local ethics committee and all participants provided informed consent.

The potential for the equivalence of impedance across different paths was demonstrated two decades ago using bioimpedance analysis BIA measurements Lukaski et al. This is based on a number of key observations:
