(FR) DETERMINATION D'INDICE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of determining an index indicative of the presence, absence or degree of left ventricular hypertrophy in a subject. The method includes using a processing system to determine a measured impedance value for at least one body segment. For each body segment the measured impedance values are used to determine at least one impedance parameter, which are then used to determine a fat-free mass for the subject. The fat free mass can then be used as the index.

(FR)
Ce procédé permet de déterminer un indice indiquant la présence, l'absence ou le degré d'hypertrophie ventriculaire gauche chez un malade. Il consiste à utiliser un système de traitement afin de déterminer une valeur d'impédance mesurée pour au moins un segment corporel. Pour chaque segment, les valeurs d'impédance mesurées déterminent au moins un paramètre d'impédance qui, par la suite, va servir à déterminer une masse exempte de graisse du malade, laquelle masse peut ensuite servir d'indice.
