In many medical settings, the chemistry of the body (i.e. serum, saliva, urine) is assessed, but the critically important analysis of the structure of the body is missing.
Supine Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (S-BIA) gives the practitioner state-of-the-art measurements of the composition of the body, allowing for more progressive, precisely-targeted, and individualized strategies for weight, health, and disease management. By monitoring subtle measureable changes in composition associated with chronic disease and cellular hydration, you have the ability to make timely adjustments and help patients move from surviving to thriving.Using state-of-the-art frequency technology, BIA measures numerous biomarkers associated with health and disease.
At your hosptial, clinic, university, or office, Dr. Saunders covers each step and level of involvement with body composition, including how to:
properly conduct the supine BIA protocol
avoid common errors
calibrate and care for the device and adhesive electrodes
load and run your BIA software
understand the report options available
read reports (including Skeletal Muscle Mass, Fat, Total Body Water, Intracellular Water, Extracellular Water, Lean Dry Mass, Lean Soft Tissue, Phase Angle, BMI, Basal Metabolic Rate, Daily Energy Expenditure, and Food & FItness sections)
determine areas where you may want your patient to work
discuss relevant supplement strategies
identify areas you may want to consider further testing
translate the data to patients in a meaningful and memorable way
