Clinical Applications for the QuadScan4000

BURNS – Large changes in body fat mass during the treatment of major burns injuries.

CANCER – Improving nutrition before surgery can decrease post-operative complications and length of stay.

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE – Excessive fluid accumulation is associated with increased morbidity and prolonged convalescence after cardiopulmonary bypass.

COPD – Fat-free mass is an independent predictor of mortality irrespective of fat mass...supports the inclusion of body-composition assessment as a systematic marker of disease severity in COPD staging.

CRITICALLY ILL PATIENT – Critically ill patients retain fluid, up to 30 litres and more.

DIABETICS – Overweight and obesity are associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. Thus, it is important for clinicians to accurately measure and monitor the body composition of at-risk individuals and patients with diabetes.

DIALYSIS/NEPHROLOGY – As renal function declines salt & water retention worsens resulting in an increase in body weight due to an increase in water content.

DRUG DOSING – ''... the calculation of lean body mass (LBM) might be an important factor when determining drug doses as opposed to total body weight. This may avoid giving overweight patients a relative overdose of herapin..''

EATING DISORDERS – Bulimic patients with a past had lower percentage of body fat, lower muscle mass and higher percentage of extra-cellular fluid.

ELDERLY – Improved estimation of body composition in elderly subjects by use of age-specific prediction equations.

HIV/AIDS – Body composition testing can be used to monitor lipodystrophy and wasting, two problems associated with HIV.

HYDRATION STATUS/FLUID RETENTION – Measurement of extra-cellular and total body water provides useful information on the nutritional status of surgical patients and may be estimated

LYMPHEDEMA – Early intervention will reduce the long term consequences of Lymphedema post breast cancer.

MALNUTRITION/UNDERNUTRITION/NUTRITION – Malnutrition results in a loss of body cell mass (BCM) accompanied by an expansion of the extra-cellular mass (ECM).

NEONATES – Bioelectrical impedance analysis is a simple, non-invasive method of estimating total body water in neonates receiving intensive care. It can be applied to both the assessment of changes in body water and body composition.

OBESITY – Severe obesity is accompanied by large increases in fat mass and alterations in the composition of fat free mass, in particular total body water and its extra-cellular compartment.

OEDEMA – The Development of oedema after major abdominal surgery is associated with increased morbidity

PAEDIATRICS – Body composition in children is of increasing interest within the contexts of childhood obesity, clinical management of patients and nutritional programming as a pathway to adult disease.

PULMONARY OEDEMA – Impedance measurement may be useful in estimating lung water associated with lung injury following cardiopulmonary bypass.

REHABILITATION – Changes in body composition, as a consequence of dietary and exercise modification, contributed to the ''observed'' improvement noted in weight-adjusted peak aerobic capacity following cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training.

SEGMENTAL – There is increased use of segmental impedance in the assessment of diseases that affect body fluid balance.

SURGERY – The development of oedema after major abdominal surgery is associated with increased morbidity. Age and the reduced ability to excrete administered fluid load are significant aetlological factors and bioimpedance analysis can potentially identify patients at risk.

Who can benefit from using the QuadScan4000?

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. Body cell mass can easily be obscured by an expansion of extracellular fluid which will not be detected by looking at an overall increase in total body weight.

Segmental measures

Using the Prediction Marker (Impedance Ratio) you are able to monitor change in the condition of the body segment over a period of time.

Only the accurate raw Impedance measurement data at 5 kHz and 200 kHz is used to calculate the Prediction Marker (Impedance Ratio). So this is independent of regression equations and therefore does not require the subjects weight, height, gender or age.

However, the important point to remember is that it is CHANGE in the marker that should be focused upon to determine the TREND over a period of time, either hours, days, weeks or months.

The images below show the different types of electrode placements depending on the part of the body which requires measurement.

Segmental Measurement - Chest

Segmental Measurement - Hip

Segmental Measurement - Foot

Segmental Measurement - Hand

Segmental Measurement - Neck

Using your QuadScan 4000

Using your QuadScan4000 couldn't be easier – no training is required and the whole process is completely non-invasive, an important point for the patient. The QuadScan4000 has two main cable leads of which each lead has two crocodile/alligator clips, red and black. These clips are attached to the exposed tabs on the electrodes. The patients details are input using the simple keypad.

It works by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body and measuring the bioelectrical impedance at fixed frequencies of 5, 50, 100 and 200 kHz. Once the test has been performed a complete body composition analysis is displayed on the LCD screen within three seconds and comprehensive analysis can be printed.
