Summary: Impedancemetry in the anaesthetic risk assessment in children with acute lymphoblastic leukosis.

Objective: to evaluate the appropriateness of using bioimpedancemetry in the complex of anesthesiological examination of children with ALL

Annotation: The article describes the issues of improving the methodology for assessing the severity of the condition and anesthetic risk of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Bioimpedancemetry reveals significant tissue imbalance, nutritional disorders, risks of dehydration and hypovolemia. A decrease in the functional reserves of the cardiovascular system was revealed against the background of chemoradiation therapy.

Conclusion: Based on the study, the author suggests the use of bioimpedancemetry in the complex of preoperative examination in patients receiving chemoradiotherapy.
