1. A device configured to determine a bio-impedance or a body composition of a patient in preparation of, or during, a peritoneal dialysis treatment, comprising:
four electrodes, each electrode being integral with a surface of (i) an organizer of a continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis system (CAPD), (ii) an automated peritoneal dialysis device, or (iii) an automated peritoneal dialysis-cycler (APD-Cycler),
wherein the device is configured to start measuring or to allow measuring the bio-impedance or the body composition, or both, upon or by inserting a disc with a dial into the device, wherein the dial is rotatable relative to the disc for selecting between two or more operating states of the device.
