Improving assessment of patient health

The assessment of a patient’s state of health and nutritional status is still based on classic vital signs and BMI (Body Mass Index). As critical parameters of body composition are not measured, the opportunities to initiate preventive measures or to optimise treatment remain unused.

The SECA medical Vital Signs Analyzer (mVSA) compensates for the weaknesses of BMI and increases the potential of non-invasive, ad hoc diagnostics.

The seca mVSA Spot-Check Monitor measures the four classic vital signs of blood pressure, SpO2, pulse and temperature plus body composition consisting of fat mass, muscle mass and body water by means of Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA).

The options of combining data from body composition and vital signs yield a much faster and more differentiated assessment of the patient’s state of health and nutrition status than is possible with vital signs and BMI alone. At the end of the very brief examination, the doctor immediately has all the information required for decision-making.
