These downloadable PDF Calculators were created as a rapid and convenient means to calculate and document estimates of Glomerular Filtration Rate. Once downloaded, use directly from the desktop. No internet connection is required. Completed forms can be 'saved' and 'printed'.
Three (3) versions were created to accommodate 3 equations, original MDRD Study Equation, MDRD Study Equation for creatinine methods traceable to isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS), and CKD-EPI 2009 Equation.
New CKD-EPI Equations incorporate Cystatin C in the calculations
