body cell mass

body cell mass

The sum total of functional cells within an organism, the maintenance of which is a parameter of interest in critically ill patients. Measurement of fat-free mass, bone mineral and extracellular water by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and multifrequency bioimpedance allows a reasonably accurate estimation of body cell mass at the bedside.

Furthermore, we compared classical GFR measurement methods with those based on bioimpedance analysis-derived body cell mass (BCM) and fat-free mass BSA.
Phase angle (PA) value determined by BIA is an indicator of cell membrane damage and body cell mass (Varan et al 2016).
Reactance, intracellular water, its ratio to extracellular water, and ratio of extracellular mass to body cell mass were factors correlated with symptoms of the infection group (20).
Body cell mass, lean mass weight, fat mass weight, and dry lean mass were measured using a Multi-Frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analyzer (Bodystat; QUAD SCAN 4000, U.K.) with 4 electrodes connected to the right hand (wrist and middle fingers) and right foot (ankle and above the knuckle of the toe).
In addition to its use in estimating adiposity, BIA is also used in the estimation of body cell mass and TBW in a variety of clinical conditions.
OBJECTIVE: To determine (1) lean and fat body compartments, reflected by fat-free mass (FFM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM), body cell mass (BCM), total body potassium (TBK), fat mass and percentage fat mass, and their differences between age groups in healthy, physically active subjects from 18 to 94 y of age; and (2) if the rate of decrease in any one of the parameters by age might be accelerated compared to others.

Because of the dangers of wasting, especially as an AIDS-associated condition, HIV+ people should have their body cell mass (BCM) monitored by their healthcare provider.
And yet another is low body cell mass, which leads to increased fat mass.
