Bioelectrical impedance analysis

This technique, which is based on the electrical impedance of body tissues, can be performed at the bedside. It provides a reliable estimate of total body water under most conditions. Fat-free mass and body fat can be estimated from equations using values derived from bioelectrical impedance analysis. It can be a useful technique for body composition analysis in healthy individuals and in many medical conditions except those involving major disturbances of water distribution. As such disturbances are frequent in critically ill patients, the use of this technique cannot be recommended in such a setting.
