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. Future functions will cover more material with a focus on anaesthesia, critical care and peri-operative medicine.

Calculate physiological characteristics of adults and children

A variety of formulae are provided for estimation of physiologic characteristics of infants, children, and adults. For example, calculations of ideal weight, and the alveolar gas equation. Each formula is referenced to the original publication. Future functions will cover more material with a focus on anaesthesia, critical care and peri-operative medicine.

Functions are provided for estimation of a range of physiologic characteristics of infants, child and adult humans.

  • Height, weight and fluid compartments.
  • Henderson-Hasslebalch
  • Alveolar gas equation
  • Airway deadspace

Each formula is referenced to the original publication. Warnings can be given for estimation based on input data outside of normal ranges. Future functions will cover more material with a focus on anaesthesia, critical care and peri-operative medicine.

Contributions welcome.
