With a prevalence of more than 15% in ICU, septic shock today represents a real public health problem and remains the leading cause of mortality in ICU. Undernutrition is characterized by an alteration of the body composition and in particular by a loss of muscle mass. In intensive care, there are indirect elements suggesting a link between loss of muscle mass and prognosis.
Muscle mass results from a balance between the pathway of proteolysis and that of protein synthesis, depending on many factors, not one of the most important are insulin. The protein PTP1B (Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B), by the dephosphorylation of its numerous substrates, constitutes an endogenous regulator of numerous intracellular signaling pathways, including that of insulin. PTP1B could play a role in the protein synthesis abnormalities observed during sepsis leading clinically to impaired body composition including muscle body mass. Therefore, we propose to study the association between PTP1B and loss of muscle mass in patients in sepsis in resuscitation.
The intestinal barrier plays an essential role in protecting against microbial luminal flora and the phenomenon of bacterial translocation. Zonulin is one of the major regulators of tight junctions, important actors in the intestinal barrier function. The increase in plasma zonulin levels, greater than 0.6 ng / mg, is directly correlated with increased intestinal permeability (16). However, elevation of plasma zonulin has never been evaluated in septic resuscitation patients. This is why we propose the evaluation of the association between plasma zonulin and the loss of muscle mass in these resuscitation patients.

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 ...
The state of hyperhydration in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with increased mortality. Bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) appears to be a...
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a widely used modality of renal replacement therapy. Due to its continuous nature of therapy, better control of fluid status and preservation of residual renal ...

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 assessment of body hydration is a complex process, and no measurement is valid for all situations. Bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) has emerged as a relatively novel technique for as...
Conventional Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) or Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis (BIVA) can provide direct evaluations of body composition. The purpose of this study was to evaluate lean...
We investigated bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA)-derived parameters in critically ill patients to evaluate any differences between survivors and nonsurvivors.
The aims were to assess the prevalence of malnutrition and to validate bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) against whole-body DXA for the assessment of body composition in patients with SSc.
Noninvasive bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) has shown promise in acute heart failure (HF) management. To our knowledge, its use in predicting outcomes in outpatients with chronic HF patients ha...
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).
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.
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)
