Metabolic Testing (RMR)

RMR Testing


About the RMR

Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.

The ReeVue RMR by KORR directly measures the concentration of oxygen breathed out by each patient.  The patient merely breathes through a simple mouthpiece as all the exhaled air is collected and analyzed.  Because there is a direct correlation between oxygen consumed and calories burned (4.813 calories for every milliliter of oxygen consumed), an accurate measurement of oxygen consumption is an effective measurement of calorie consumption.

  • Pinpoint your caloric needs for your specific goals.

RMR TESTING PROCESS

Pre-test Requirements

In order to have the best possible results, follow these simple instructions:

  • Avoid eating a meal 4 hours before the test.
  • Avoid exercising on the day of testing.
  • If possible, avoid the use of stimulants such as caffeine prior to testing.

Testing Process

  • Patient sits or reclines in a comfortable
    position.
  •  The patient breathes into a
    MetaBreather mouthpiece. A nose clip
    ensures that all the exhaled air is
    analyzed by the ReeVue.
  • After 8-10 minutes, the device will
    beep, indicating the test is finished.
  • RMR results are visible on the screen
    and will be printed.
