Use of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis for the Assessment of Nutritional Status in Critically Ill Patients

Abstract

Malnutrition is common in the critically ill patients and known to cause a variety of negative clinical outcomes. However, various conventional methods for nutrition assessment have several limitations. We hypothesized that body composition data, as measured using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), may have a significant role in evaluating nutritional… (More)
