OBJECTIVE To compare volume overload in stable hemodialysis (HD) patients assessed by standard clinical judgment with data obtained from bioimpedance analysis. METHODS Ultrafiltration volume (VU) was delivered as prescribed by standard clinical practice. Independently, a measure for volume overload was assessed by a clinical score (SW). The Body Composition Monitor (BCM, Fresenius Medical Care, Bad Homburg, Germany) was used to derive values for extracellular volume (VE) and volume overload… CONTINUE READING
