Cockcroft-gault formula - a formula to estimate creatinine clearance that takes into account sex, age, weight, and serum creatinine (scr). Ccr=(140 - age) x wgt (kg) / 72xcrt (mg/dl) x 1 (if m) or 0.85 (if f), for conventional units. Ccr=(140 - age) x wgt (kg) / 72xcrt (mcmol/l) x 88.4 x 1 (if m) or 0.85 (if f) [if wgt is in lbs; wgt (kg) = wgt (lbs) x 0.45], for si units. (cockcroft, d.W. And m.H. Gault. Prediction of creatinine clearance from serum creatinine. Nephron. 1976. 16(1):31-41.)
