Body Composition Monitor in Hemodialysis Patients

2014-07-23 21:09:33 | BioPortfolio


Control of volume status is a pivotal issue in haemodialysis therapy. Objective and practical management for maintaining normovolemia is needed.

The investigators hypothesized that intervention of volume status with the body composition monitor (BCM) may improved hemodynamic parameters and biomarkers in hemodialysis patients.


The investigators will assess BCM in enrolled hemodialysis patients by 4 weeks for 16 weeks During the former 8-week intervention period, The investigators will adjust patients' volume status according to the results of BCM.

During the latter 8-week observational period, The investigators will evaluate the changes of patients' hemodynamic parameters and biomarkers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The separation of particles from a suspension by passage through a filter with very fine pores. In ultrafiltration the separation is accomplished by convective transport; in DIALYSIS separation relies instead upon differential diffusion. Ultrafiltration occurs naturally and is a laboratory procedure. Artificial ultrafiltration of the blood is referred to as HEMOFILTRATION or HEMODIAFILTRATION (if combined with HEMODIALYSIS).

Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.

A genus of ALGAE in the family Lagenidiaceae. One species (L. giganteum) parasitizes the larval stage of MOSQUITOES and is used in its biological control (PEST CONTROL, BIOLOGICAL); it also causes disease in freshwater FISHES.

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.
