Other Methods for creatinine clearance estimation

Other Methods for creatinine clearance estimation

Prof. Lee introduces three other methods for creatinine clearance in this step.

Continuing from the previous step, he says that Cockroft-Gault tends to overestimate the creatinine clearance for those who are overweight, diabetes, or diabetic obesity.

Following that, we learn Jelliffe Method, Salazar & Corcoran Equation, and Schwartz Formula (for children).

In Salazar & Corcoran Equation, we find that the maximum life expectancy for men is 137. Besides, for obese women, the maximum life expectancy is 146. Therefore, it is compared very closely with 140 as suggested by the Cockcroft equation.

In Schwartz Formula, we should notice that the adjustment factor is based on the age of the pediatric patient.
