Paper Abstract

Electric bioimpedance is one of methods to assess the hydrate status in hemodialyzed patients. It is also being used for assessing the hydration level among peritoneal dialysed patients, diagnosed with neoplastic diseases, patients after organ transplantations and the ones infected with HIV virus. During measurements sets were obtained from two groups, which were named a control (healthy volunteers) and test group (hemodialyzed patients). Zscored, discretized data and data retrieval results were computed in R language environment in order to find a simple rule for recognizing health problems. The executed experiments affirm possibilities of creating good classifiers for detecting a proper patient with the help of medical data sets, but only with previous training.
