This paper reviews various bioimpedance methods permitting to measure non-invasively, extracellular, intracellular and total body water (TBW) and compares BIA methods based on empirical equations of the wrist-ankle resistance or impedance at 50 kHz, height and weight with BIS methods which rely on an electrical model of tissues and resistances measured at(More)
A method for extracting fluid volumes from multifrequency bioimpedance, which takes into account the body geometry and the presence of nonconducting elements, was tested on 12 young dialyzed patients against correlations for total body water volumes (TBW) from Watson et al. and Humes et al. Our calculations of TBW from impedance were found to overestimate(More)
We propose a method for calculating directly total body water (TBW) volumes (V (t)) from whole body resistance extrapolated at infinite frequency (R (infinity)) using a XITRON 4200 impedance meter. Mean TBW resistivities for men and women were determined from measurements of R (infinity) and fat-free mass (FFM(d)) measured by DXA in 58 healthy subjects(More)
The kinetics of urea, creatinine and phosphate removal during dialysis were investigated in pediatric patients using a two-pool model taking into account fluid shifts and mass transfer between the two compartments. It is found that even urea must be described by a two-pool model since it presents a post dialysis rebound due to equilibration between the two(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review various methods for measuring body composition by bioimpedance and their limitations, as well as available impedance meters, including body fat analyzers for home use. RECENT FINDINGS Bioimpedance spectroscopy, which requires multifrequency impedance meters, is preferable for fluid volume measurements, especially extracellular(More)
A two-stage ultrafiltration and nanofiltration (UF/NF) process for the treatment of model dairy wastewater was investigated to recycle nutrients and water from the wastewater. Ultracel PLGC and NF270 membranes were found to be the most suitable for this purpose. In the first stage, protein and lipid were concentrated by the Ultracel PLGC UF membrane and(More)
This article compares the determination of body fat-free-mass (FFM) by impedance, using either hand-to-foot resistance (R₁₃) or foot-to-foot one (R₃₄) from comparison with dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements in a normal population. The first goal was to see if the foot-to-foot resistance used in body fat analysers provides less accurate information(More)
Our main goal was to test various impedance methods for measuring body composition in adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN) during refeeding therapy. A specific objective was to compare the information provided by a foot-to-foot impedancemeter (FFI) with that supplied by a medical multifrequency impedancemeter and by dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). We(More)
