Bioimpedance spectroscopy hand

Cristina Garagarza, Ana Laura Flores, Ana Valente
BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis (HD) patients are vulnerable to multiple metabolic and nutrition derangements, leading to changes in body composition. Handgrip strength (HGS) has been used as a nutrition marker. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between HGS and lean tissue mass (LTM) with several parameters in HD patients and develop HGS predictive equations. METHODS: Cross-sectional study with 155 patients in HD treatment for ≥3 months. Body composition was assessed through bioimpedance spectroscopy...

OBJECTIVES: In kidney transplant recipients, reduced muscle mass and hand-grip strength are associated with impaired nutritional status. Serum testosterone is highly associated with muscle strength in the general population. Here, we aimed to determine the associations among serum testosterone, hand-grip strength, and nutritional and inflammatory parameters, as well as graft function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study included 144 stable male kidney transplant recipients from our renal transplant outpatient clinic...

Postoperative lymphedema is considered irreversible once it has developed, and significantly lowers the patient's quality of life. However, lymphatic function has recently been clarified, and it is possible that lymphedema can be cured if early treatment is started. This two-arm randomized clinical trial (UMIN000026124) will prospectively evaluate 24 patients with early-stage breast cancer-related lymphedema at the Nagoya University Hospital and Aichi Cancer Center Hospital. The eligibility criteria will be patients who are diagnosed with stage 0-1 breast cancer-related lymphedema, as defined by the International Society of Lymphology, within 12 weeks after breast cancer surgery...

The relative importance of sarcopenia and its individual components as independent predictors of mortality in the dialysis population has not been determined. We estimated whole-body muscle mass using pre-dialysis bioimpedance spectroscopy measurements in 645 ACTIVE/ADIPOSE-enrolled prevalent hemodialysis patients from San Francisco and Atlanta. Low muscle mass was defined as two standard deviations below sex-specific means for young adults from NHANES and indexed to height2 , body weight, body surface area, or body mass index...

Impedance spectroscopy can be used to analyze the dielectric properties of various materials. In the biomedical domain, it is used as bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) to analyze the composition of body tissue. Being a non-invasive, real-time capable technique, it is a promising modality, especially in the field of lung monitoring. Unfortunately, up to now, BIS does not provide any regional lung information as the electrodes are usually placed in hand-to-hand or transthoracic configurations. Even though transthoracic electrode configurations are in general capable of monitoring the lung, no focusing to specific regions is achieved...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Patients with chronic kidney disease treated by haemodialysis (HD) are at increased risk of sarcopenia. Bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy (BIS) can be used to determine body composition, and is one of the several potential screening tools for sarcopenia. The newer generation of portable hand-held devices can be readily used in dialysis centres. The results from BIS devices using a two-compartmental model of body composition can be affected by hydration status and so ideally measurements should be made when patients are not overhydrated...

Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) is frequently used to monitor body fluid and body composition in healthy and clinical populations. BIS guidelines state that there should be no skin lesions at the site of electrodes, and if lesions are present, electrode positions should be changed. However, alternate electrode positions are yet to be reported. This study aimed to determine if ventral electrode placements were suitable alternatives for whole body and segmental BIS measurements. Three alternate electrode placements were assessed for whole body BIS using a combination of ventral hand and foot electrode placements...

PURPOSE: Early detection and timely intervention have potential to reduce late-stage lymphedema (LE) in patients with breast cancer undergoing axillary lymph node dissection (ALND). This study aims to determine if detection and early treatment of subclinical LE by using prospective monitoring with bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) can lead to reduced development of clinical LE. METHODS AND RESULTS: Subclinical LE was prospectively detected using an L-Dex(®) U400 analyzer to measure BIS in 186 patients who underwent ALND between 2010 and 2013 through our LE monitoring program...

BACKGROUND: Detection of early lymphedema is important for effective treatment outcome and reduction of disease burden. The aims of this study were to determine normal inter-limb variance in the hand and four segments of the arm using bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) to provide diagnostic thresholds for detection of early lymphedema development, to determine the intra-rater reliability of these measurements, and to compare the inter-limb BIS ratios to differences based on arm circumference measures...

The harmonic impedance spectra (HIS) of a time-varying bioimpedance Z(ω, t) is a new tool to better understand and describe complex time-varying biological systems with a distinctive periodic character as, for example, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. In this paper, the relationship between the experimental setup and the identification framework for estimating Z(ω, t) is set up. The theory developed applies to frequency response based impedance measurements from noisy current-voltage observations. We prove theoretically and experimentally that a voltage source (VS) and a current source (CS) analogue front end-based measurement lead, respectively, to a closed-loop and an open-loop HIS identification problem...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Intracellular resistance (Ri), a raw measure of bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS), has been suggested for assessment of muscle health. The associations of repeated BIS measurements with functioning and nutritional status were investigated in nursing home residents suffering from poor health and disabilities. METHODS: A total of 106 nursing home residents (age 83±8 yrs, 75% women) were recruited. Whole body and calf BIS measures (lean body mass, resistance at 50 kHz, and Ri), height and calf electrode distance (D) were used to calculate six muscle indices...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of lymphedema is frequently based upon measuring the increase in volume of the affected region compared to that of a comparable unaffected region. This requires methods that can measure the volume of body regions that are not only accurate and sensitive but also suitable for use in clinical practice. To date, bioimpedance spectroscopy has been used to measure volume increase due to lymphedema in whole arms but excluding the hand. We report here an impedance-based method for the measurement of hand volume...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether oral health in hospitalised elderly was associated with body cell mass (BCM) measured with Bioimpedance spectroscopy. BACKGROUND: Body cell mass is the tissue producing the metabolic work necessary for all body functions. BCM is mainly muscle tissue. Low BCM is associated with diseases, ageing and poor nutritional status. Reduced oral health is also associated with these parameters; thus, BCM and oral health may be related. METHODS: Body cell mass was measured using Bioimpedance spectroscopy in 138 acutely hospitalised elderly ≥70 years...

Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) is suitable for continuous monitoring of body water content. The combination of body posture and time is a well-known source of error, which limits the accuracy and therapeutic validity of BIS measurements. This study evaluates a model-based correction as a possible solution. For this purpose, an 11-cylinder model representing body impedance distribution is used. Each cylinder contains a nonlinear two-pool model to describe fluid redistribution due to changing body position and its influence on segmental and hand-to-foot (HF) bioimpedance measurements...

Discrepancies in body fluid estimates between segmental bioimpedance spectroscopy (SBIS) and gold-standard methods may be due to the use of a uniform value of tissue resistivity to compute extracellular fluid volume (ECV) and intracellular fluid volume (ICV). Discrepancies may also arise from the exclusion of fluid volumes of hands, feet, neck, and head from measurements due to electrode positions. The aim of this study was to define the specific resistivity of various body segments and to use those values for computation of ECV and ICV along with a correction for unmeasured fluid volumes...
