Analysis of the nutritional, hydration and cellular status of patients
Diuretics, accurate fluid monitoring and the inevitable decrease of lean muscle mass are all concerns for patients, nurses and doctors alike. Bioelectrical Impedance Technology will meet all these needs non-invasively, giving accurate and reliable measurements for fluid, lean muscle mass, nutritional status and overall cellular health. Bioelectrical Impedance Technology has been used successfully in dialysis wards to measure the volume of fluid over-hydration to help determine dry weight, as well as in IC wards to assess nutritional status, recovery rate and hydration levels. In addition, the QuadScan4000 may be used to detect malnutrition in patients with normal or high body fat.
