Ree Vue Indirect Calorimetry

Overview

ReeVue Indirect Calorimetry2Indirect Calorimetry measures the oxygen that the body uses and determines resting metabolic rate, which establishes the precise caloric intake required for weight loss. Knowing the results helps with the management of obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and sleep apnea.

Strengths

  • The Ree Vue measures the oxygen that the body consumes. This measurement calculates a patient’s Resting Energy Expenditure (REE). This technique is referred to as Indirect Calorimetry and is used for nutritional assessment and medical nutrition therapy.
  • Ree Vue prepares physicians to give effective, yet time efficient, weight loss counseling to their patients.
  • Indirect Calorimetry uses Resting Energy Expenditure (REE/RMR) to pinpoint the most calories a patient can eat and still lose 1-4 pounds per week.

The Procedure

  • The procedure is a 10-minute breath test. It displays results and provides a printout that is ideal for maintaining records and helping the patient understand the results.
