Bioelectrical impedance analysis is studied as a bedside tool to estimate capillary leak in order to guide dosing of hydrophilic antimicrobials.
The objective of this study is to compare the rate of low blood pressure events (Intradialytic Hypotension: IDH) when intradialytic exercise is performed in the first half of the hemodialy...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the application of the impedance threshold device during hemodialysis in children to optimize fluid removal, reduce the incidence of complications ...
High volume fluid therapy in open abdomen (OA) trauma patients contributes to excessive visceral edema, delayed fascial closure, and prolonged parenteral nutrition. Thus, we investigated w...
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 ...
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...
Can vaginal bioelectrical impedance (VZ) electrophysiologically determine alterations of the endometrium in preparation for implantation?
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...
Although lymphedema is fundamentally abnormal accumulation of excess water in the extracellular space, previous studies have evaluated the efficacy of physiological bypass surgery (lymphaticovenula...
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)
The physician's inability to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to the patient due to the physician's disability. Common causes include alcohol and drug abuse, mental illness, physical disability, and senility.
A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
