Critical view on diagnosing muscle wasting by single-frequency bio-electrical impedance in COPD.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Assessment of muscle wasting in COPD is relevant as it is independently associated with metabolic and functional consequences and even survival. Muscle wasting can be approached by assessing fat free mass (FFM), but it is already demonstrated that FFM measured by bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) underestimates FFM measured by dual energy X… (More)
