Patients with acute/critical illness are particularly vulnerable to muscle loss and fluid shifts, which adversely impact clinical outcomes. Assessment of these parameters in hospital settings is often subjective and imprecise, which creates discrepancies in identification and difficulty in assessing longitudinal changes. Body composition (BC) technologies provide objective information about muscle and fluid status that can enhance clinical assessment, and BC variables could be biomarkers for prognosis and targets to monitor intervention …
