BACKGROUND Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS), ultrasound lung comets (ULC) and serum biomarkers (N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide, NT-proBNP) have all been used to assist clinicians to determine hydration status in dialysis patients. METHODS We performed simultaneous BIS, ULC and NT-proBNP measurements in 27 peritoneal dialysis patients to determine the concordance of the three methods. RESULTS Patients with evidence of increasing lung congestion (as determined by ultrasound) were… CONTINUE READING
