ReeVue - Indirect Calorimetry

ReeVue - Indirect Calorimetry

The REEVUE measures the oxygen that the body consumes. Using this measurement it calculates a patient's Resting Energy Expenditure (REE). This technique is refered to as Indirect Calorimetry and is used for nutritional assessment and medical nutrition therapy.

The REEVUE performs a simple 10 minute breath test. It displays results and provides a printout that is ideal for maintaining records, as well as helping the clinician and patient to understand the results.

The REEVUE is lightweight and portable. It does not require a computer or manual calibration.

The REEVUE provides an accurate method for measuring 2 (oxygen consumption) and REE (resting energy expenditure).

Indications For Use

The REEVUE can be used for any patient where a measurement of metabolic rate or oxygen uptake (VO2) will be useful, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Nutritional assessment
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Syndrome X
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Weight management
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular Disease



The REEVUEhas been validated against the clinical standard metabolic cart and has demonstrated equivalent accuracy in resting volunteers for both oxygen consumption and resting energy expenditure.


When the REEVUE is turned on, it automatically self-calibrates and is ready to use. After the test is completed, results are presented on the display screen and are printed directly to the printer supplied with it. No computer or software is needed to operate the REEVUE.

Clinical Validation of the ReeVue

A study comparing resting energy expenditure (REE) and oxygen consumption (VO2) measurements reported by the ReeVue and by the Deltatrac metabolic cart was done at the University of Utah. This study,which has been submitted for publication, shows very good agreement between the ReeVue and the Deltatrac for measurement of both VO2 and REE.
