Abstract
Background & aims Application of bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) requires comparison of an impedance vector to reference intervals derived from healthy subjects. The aim of this work is to obtain reference nomograms of bioimpedance vectors from healthy subjects living in Santiago de Cuba. Methods A sample of 4030 healthy people, ages 2–80 y, was measured using a tetra-polar whole-body bioimpedance analyzer at 50 kHz. BIVA method uses the 50, 75 and 95% confidence ellipses of ref...
