OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using the Cockcroft-Gault and the 4-, 5-, and 6-variable Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formulas for digoxin dose adjustment. METHODS Steady-state serum digoxin concentrations were determined in 100 patients with heart failure and normal to severely… CONTINUE READING
