Especially in children on dialysis it is not always easy to differentiate between a gain in weight because of growth or because of fluid overload.
This is where the BCM-Body Composition Monitor helps you to assess the individual hydration and nutritional status of your patient. The device is based on bioimpedance spectroscopy and gives you a clear picture over time of the child’s fluid status and how the lean and fat tissue mass have developed.
