Bioelectrical impedance analysis of body composition and survival in patients with heart failure

Used Parameters : BW, BMI, FFMI, FMI, PBF

Publication Year : 2018

Country : UK

Journal : Clinical Cardiology

Background Studies have shown that higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with improved prognosis in heart failure (HF), and this is often termed the obesity paradox. Hypothesis Analysis of body composition may reveal that muscle mass rather than adipose tissue accounts for the obesity paradox. Methods Bioelectrical impedance analysis of body composition in 359 outpatients with HF was performed using an In Body 520 body composition scale (Biospace Inc., California). Body fat and lean mass were indexed by …
