A wrapper function for the schwartz() vectorised formula to calculate estimate glomerular filtration rate in children using the bedside Schwartz formula, using serum creatinine in mg/dl. Use the schwartz() function instead for µmol/l.

schwartz_US(creat, height)

Arguments

creat

numeric vector of creatinine levels in µmol/l (or mg/dl if units = "US")

height

numeric vector of heights in cm

Value

numeric vector of eGFR values
