Bioimpedance resistance ratios for the evaluation of dry weight in hemodialysis.

Abstract

MATERIAL Restoration of body water compartments to normal by ultrafiltration is a major goal of hemodialysis. Dry weight is the term used to define normal body water in dialysis patients, but it is limited, as it is based solely on clinical observations. Bioimpedance spectroscopy can accurately measure the resistance of body fluid compartments. The ratio of… (More)
