Bioimpedance measurement in dialysis

Help us design and run research on bioimpedance measurements for dialysis

Link to organisation:

http://www.cedar.wales.nhs.uk/home

Full description:

Patients with chronic kidney disease have dialysis to remove impurities and excess fluid from their bodies. Bioimpedance uses small electric currents to estimate the amount of excess fluid. We are designing research to find out whether this could help avoid complications from removing too much or too little fluid. We are looking for adults having peritoneal dialysis, and parents of children who are having any type of dialysis.
