BMI is the most commonly used indicator to evaluate overweight and obesity, but it cannot distinguish changes in body composition. Over recent years, it has been demonstrated that bioelectrical impeda...
To investigate the validity of an eight-contact electrode bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) system within a household scale for assessing whole body composition in COPD patients.
Bioelectrical impedance analysis is a valuable method for estimating fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) in COPD patients by means of specific predictive equations. In addition, raw BIA variables su...
Bioelectrical impedance analysis has evolved over the years to include the use of multiple frequencies and impedance measurements to improve the accuracy and reliability of body composition estimates....
The recognition of fluid retention is critical in treating heart failure (HF). Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a well-known noninvasive method; however, data on its role in managing patients...
Bioelectrical impedance analysis is studied as a bedside tool to estimate capillary leak in order to guide dosing of hydrophilic antimicrobials.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the ElectroFluidGraph(tm) (EFG) impedance analyzer is comparable to a predicate device in measuring human body composition.
The study is to collect the body composition data using five different methods-bioimpedance analysis (Tanita®), DXA (GE Medical), BodPod (Life Medical), deuterium dilution (heavy water), ...
The study was based on the clinical trial BCA-01 (NCT01368640) "Generation of prediction equations to analyze body composition of adults based on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)" an...
Aim of the present study is to determine whether muscle mass as assessed by bioelectrical impedance analysis correlates with and corresponds to muscle mass as assessed by CT scan analysis ...
A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
The relative amounts of various components in the body, such as percentage of body fat.
