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.

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.
