Significant Observations from Physicians Using the BCM
The BCM, utilizing advanced bioimpedance technology, has been shown to be an important tool in helping to provide both objective and reliable information needed in determination of dry weight. This has the potential to help in limiting the repetitive cycle involved in the probing process and, thus possibly reduce chances of hypotensive events that may lead to cardiovascular issues.
“No heart attacks were observed and no emergency dialysis occurred, and the number of intra-dialytic complications such as hypotension were reduced with the assistance of the BCM in the assessment of fluid status in a group of HD patients2.”
“Volume control guided by objective assessment of fluid overload (with the BCM) showed significant decrease in left ventricular mass and improved BP control3.”
“Assessment of fluid overload with bioimpedance spectroscopy (BCM) provides better management of fluid status, which leads to significant improvement in the cardiovascular status of HD patients – Hur, et al3.”
