Bioimpedance can be used to measure extracellular water (ECW) and total body water in hemodialysis (HD) patients and estimate ECW excess. However, ECW excess potentially includes both an increase in the plasma volume and also the extravascular volume. Overestimating the amount of fluid to be removed during HD risks intra‐dialytic hypotension. We wished to determine the association between estimates of ECW excess comparing several different equations using bioimpedance, brain N‐terminal pro‐brain natriuretic …
