Segmental intracellular, interstitial, and intravascular volume changes during simulated hemorrhage and resuscitation: A case study

pressures, pulmonary arterial pressure, and cardiac output. We think that monitoring extent of interstitial and intracellular volume changes by noninvasive instrument would provide a better guide in fluid management in such patients. The ZSpec-2 will also be useful for intravenous fluid management in the acute setting. The on-line monitoring of volume shifts between compartments is crucial particularly in critically ill patients (in septic or cardiogenic shock, burns patients, or perhaps critically patients in the Emergency Room or Operating Room). Such patients often

A system to monitor segmental intracellular, interstitial, and intravascular volume and circulatory changes during acute hemodialysis

Introduction Hemodynamic redistribution of fluids between body segments and between the intracellular and extracellular compartments within those segments are often of central importance to various fluid management procedures [ 1 , 2 ], Objective methods to monitor such factors include tracer dilution techniques, which are invasive, time consuming, and expensive, and cannot be repeated in the short intervals that are required to follow events over the usual time course of interest. Bioelectric impedance instrumentation may be used to monitor these changes

Electrical field landscape of two electroceuticals


In recent years several electrical wound management systems, so called electroceuticals, have been introduced claiming an induced electrical response in the wounded tissue. Some have external current and voltage sources while others have internal constructions aiming at creating necessary therapeutic currents. We investigate two representative electroceuticals by mapping out their electrical field landscapes using a previously developed skin model within a numerical simulation scheme. We find very strong fields from the electroceuticals of the order of 1 kV/m amenable for electrotaxic influence on pertinent cell types for wound healing. Current densities can locally be as high as 1 A/cm2.

The first year with the Journal of Electrical Bioimpedance (JEB)

this process in 2011 with the very distinct goal of finally getting indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge and getting an impact factor. We are very fortunate to have an extremely competent group of section editors and we are very grateful for their contributions to the quality of the journal. Readers that have long experience with bioimpedance and feel that they would like to contribute to the development of joeb, are encourage to contact us. References 1 Bernius S.

Electrodermal activity responses for quantitative assessment of felt pain

of felt pain strength is a key factor for successful pain management during surgery and other clinical procedures. Presently, most of the pain scoring systems used in clinical practice rely on patient cooperation and attentiveness. However, in some cases, for example in unconscious, confused, uncooperative patients, or in the case for infants, questioning is impossible. As a result, pain is usually poorly evaluated and inadequately managed. Therefore, a more practical, patient-independent method for this purpose is highly desirable. As pain provokes a sympathetic

The feasibility of using compression bioimpedance measurements to quantify peripheral edema

Introduction Management of patients with fluid overload requires assessment of volume status using patient physical examination findings from the cardiopulmonary exam and examination of the extremities for peripheral edema. Recently, interest has grown in attempts at quantitative assessment of tissue hydration using BIS in many disease states [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. In addition, the tissue response to stress in the setting of edema has recently been the subject of study as a quantitative tool for edema assessment [ 4 , 5 , 6 ]. The examination for early stage

Textrode-enabled transthoracic electrical bioimpedance measurements – towards wearable applications of impedance cardiography

with integrated textrodes would facilitate continuous monitoring of cardiac activity. The usefulness of ICG has been questioned by many but it is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) [ 5 ] for a number of clinical uses, patient management, and monitoring applications. In addition the particular and distinctive capability of ICG to provide beat-to-beat cardio-vascular information non-invasively opens several monitoring scenarios. Many of the applications endorsed by the CMS would
