Guiding the hemodialysis patient on the safe path between volume overload and dehydration can be difficult in daily clinical practice.
- Assessment of fluid status based on subjective indicators has been a limiting factor due to the lack of objectiveness
- Several other methods that have been proposed are often unavailable, expensive or difficult to handle
- Most importantly, they are unable to quantify fluid overload or deficiency
The BCM-Body Composition Monitor is the only body composition device specifically designed for the use in patients with ESRD and is the cornerstone of the Advanced Fluid Management therapy program of Fresenius Medical Care. It measures and quantifies key fluid and nutritional parameters and provides a reliable decision basis for fluid and nutritional management of dialysis patients.
The BCM-Body Composition Monitor measures noninvasively, fast and cost-effectively at the bedside.
