Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
What is RMR?
RMR stands for Resting Metabolic Rate.
What is the REEVUE Machine?
The REEVUE machine measures the oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced by the body. This number, in turn, is used to calculate the number of calories that an individual burns at rest in a 24-hour period. This technique is called Indirect Calorimetry. The REEVUE can be used for any patient where a measurement of metabolic rate or oxygen uptake (VO2) will be useful, including weight management and nutritional assessment services. Breathing into this portable machine for ten minutes provides a quick and accurate result for RMR.
