A wrapper for meld_na(), a vectorised function to calculate the MELD-Na score, a variant of the MELD score incorporating serum sodium levels. In this wrapper function, bilirubin and creatinine are in mg/dl.

meld_na_US(INR, bili, creat, Na, dialysis)

Arguments

INR

numeric vector of INR

bili

numeric vector of serum bilirubin (mg/dl)

creat

numeric vector of serum creatinine (mg/dl)

Na

numeric vector of serum sodium (mmol/l)

dialysis

whether on dialysis/CVVH (1 = yes, 0 = no)

Value

numeric vector of MELD-Na scores
