My winning poster at the NCRI Conference Liverpool 2014 – Assessment of hydration states in advanced cancer using bioelectrical impedance analysis

Leave a comment

Today I presented my poster on the assessment of hydration states in advanced cancer using bio-electrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA). The work is the result of my PhD which has been submitted for examination. My findings suggest that hydration status (as measured by BIVA) relate to clinically measurable signs, symptoms and survival. Further work is needed to determine how BIVA can be used to guide the management of fluid states in advanced cancer.
