More on breath acetone (BA) in heart failure

Via Medpage Today.

Baseline BA values vary widely (many fold) in normal subjects. So, comparison with a patient's baseline may be more useful than the absolute value.

In this study a mass-spectrometry technique was used but simple gas chromatography also works.

This field is very promising. I previously blogged the topic and provided background here.
