It is essential to carry out a clinical assessment of dry body weight in dialysis-dependent children in order to develop a suitable dialysis prescription. Bioimpedance analysis and inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD) have been evaluated and utilized in adults as non- invasive parameters for the assessment of dry weight and extracellular volume. Since there are no data available for normal children, we performed a prospective study to establish reference standards for a pediatric population (111… CONTINUE READING
