Fluid Volume During Fluid Shifts


About this study

This study is designed to answer the question of if several non-invasive methods are comparable to the invasive clinical gold standard of radiolabeled albumin in terms of detecting changes in fluid volume. It is broken into two studies: Aim 1 Study A is designed as a pilot phase to develop the non-techniques, and Aim 2 Study B is comparing these techniques to the gold standard.
