Description

Computes estimated creatinine clearance using the Cockroft-Gault formula.

Usage

1
crcl.cg(..., scr.mg.dL, weight.kg, age.yr, is.female, scr.umol.L, scr.conversion.factor = 88.4)

Arguments

...

Ignored. This forces all parameters to be named, which is safer.

scr.mg.dL

Numeric. Serum creatinine in mg/dL.

weight.kg

Numeric. Body weight in kilograms.

age.yr

Numeric. Age in years.

is.female

Logical. TRUE for females, FALSE for males.

scr.umol.L

Numeric. Alternative specification of serum creatinine in umol/L.

scr.conversion.factor

Numeric. A factor for converting serum creatinine from umol/L to mg/dL.

Details

All arguments can be vectors.

Value

A numeric vector containing the estimated creatinine clearance in mL/min.
