One, it's likely that many heart failure patients--just like the rest of America --overindulge in rich, salty foods at holiday celebrations that, in the case of individuals with heart failure, wreak havoc with their extracellular fluid volume.
An anatomical limb model was used to calculate extracellular fluid volume from the Cole model results and limb dimension measurements .
As extracellular fluid volume increases, the person begins to experience oedema.
The SIADH paradigm also accounts for occurrences of EAH at moderate levels of fluid intake, as water retention before the onset of an escape from antidiuresis leads to weight increase with an expanded extracellular fluid volume.
Only extracellular fluid volume was considered in this analysis because of its likely strong influence on short-term residual-limb fluid volume change .
A multifrequency bioimpedance analyzer (XiTRON Hydra 4200, ImpediMed; San Diego, California) that we modified for the purpose of testing people with transtibial amputation was used for assessing residual-limb extracellular fluid volume change.
Using bioimpedance analysis, we measured extracellular fluid volume changes on individuals with transtibial amputation while they ambulated with either elevated vacuum sockets, suction sockets, or sockets with lock-and-pin suspension.
