Abstract in another language

The aim of this article is to give a broad overview of current methods for the identification and quantific- ation of the human dehydration level. Starting off from most common clinical setups, including vital parameters and general patients’ appearance, more quantifiable res- ults from chemical laboratory and electromagnetic meas- urement methods will be reviewed. Different analysis methods throughout the electromagnetic spectrum, ran- ging from direct current (DC) conductivity measurements up to neutron activation analysis (NAA), are discussed on the base of published results. Finally, promising techno- logies, which allow for an integration of a dehydration assessment system in a compact and portable way, will be spotted.
