Fluid volume changes during hemodialysis was monitored by continuous whole body impedance measurements. The fluid changes recorded using this method was compared to fluid volume changes measured in plasma water (PV) using 125I-albumin, and extracellular volume (ECV) using 51Cr-EDTA before and after treatment, and total body water (TBW) changes reflected by continuous bed scale monitoring. Changes in impedance correlated to TBW changes, r = 0.80, p less than 0.001, while correlations to changes in ECV and PV were: r = 0.57 and r = 0.55, respectively, p less than 0.05. Alterations in body fluid volumes recorded with whole body impedance is best correlated to total body water changes. The use of continuous whole body impedance monitoring has been shown to offer a simple non-invasive method for recording total body water changes during hemodialysis.
