A new product called as BioZ System using electrical bioimpedance is described to provide useful clinical hemodynamic data. Its easy application expands its uses from the intensive care setting to the outpatient clinic. Its reliability has been tested against the traditional Swan Ganz technique. Bioimpedance is useful in various clinical settings such as in the management of congestive heart failure, early diagnosis of transplant rejection, monitoring drug cardiotoxicity, and differentiation of cardiac versus pulmonary causes of dyspnea.
