Determination of serum ionized calcium concentration (Cal) is more tedious as a screening method than measuring serum total calcium concentration (CaT) and is not widely practicable. Thus, in clinical practice and even in research, it is customary to 'correct' the serum total calcium concentration (CaT) for that of albumin (Alb) to estimate the 'true… (More)
