Program is based on the
Estimating Creatinine Clearance (ml/min)
Cockcroft and Gault equation:
CrCl = (140 - age) x IBW / (Scr x
72) (x 0.85 for females)
Estimate Ideal body
weight in (kg)
Males: IBW = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5
Females: IBW = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet.
Jelliffe RW. Creatinine clearance: Bedside estimate. Ann Inter Med. 1973; 79:604.
Male: (98 - (0.8 * (age - 20)) / (SCR in mg/dL)) x Patients BSA/1.73 M2
Female: Multiply above result by 0.9
