physiology: Calculate physiologic characteristics of awake and anesthetized adults, children and infants

A variety of formulae are provided for estimation of physiologic characteristics of infants, children, and adults. Calculations include: body surface area, ideal weight, airway dead-space, the alveolar gas equation, and GFR. Each formula is referenced to the original publication.
