Estimate renal function with the Renal Eval App.
This app has been developed by the clinical pharmacists and nephrologists of Service ICAR and SiteGPRÂ® at the University Hospital of PitiĂ©-SalpĂŞtriĂ¨re in Paris, France. It allows you to easily estimate your patientsâ€™ renal function (Creatinine clearance or glomerular filtration rate).
The formulae used are those recommended by international agencies and medical societies: Cockcroft-Gault and MDRD.
In one click, the app will calculate the renal function of your patient and will give you 3 results, simultaneously:
-Cockcroft-Gault (in ml/min)
-MDRD (in ml/min/1,73m2)
-MDRD adjusted (in ml/min) with adjustment according to your patientâ€™s body surface
The body mass index (BMI) will also be calculated.
With these results, you will be able to access two other apps: Renal AdaptÂ®, which will help you know whether a medication requires dosage adjustment or not, and Renal DosageÂ®, which will give you access the adjusted dosages of medications in patients with renal impairment. These recommendations are also elaborated and updated regularly by Service ICAR and SiteGPRÂ® medical and pharmaceutical staff.
