This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and reliability of bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy in young children suffering of acute hydrational disorders. Whole body and segmental measurements were carried out in a group of 42 of children aged 4 to 147 months, using a BIS analyzer (Xitron 4000B). This phase of the study involved several hundred of BIS… CONTINUE READING
