A wrapper for peld(), a vectorised function to generate a PELD score for paediatric liver transplant candidates, using mg/dl as the unit for the serum bilirubin level.

peld_US(INR, bili, albumin, listing_age, growth_failure)

Arguments

INR

numeric vector of INR

bili

numeric vector of serum biliruin (mg/dl)

albumin

listing_age

numeric vector of age at the time of listing (years)

growth_failure

numeric vector of whether there is growth failure (1 = yes, 0 = no)

Value

numeric vector of PELD scores
