Simple estimate of creatinine clearance from plasma creatinine in neonates.


Thirteen newborn infants, 8 preterm and 5 term, with either mild or serious neonatal asphyxia were studied. From the first 24 hours of life to day 13, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimated by creatinine clearance was compared with the values obtained using Schwartz's formula: GFR (ml/min per 1.73 m2) = 0.55 x length (cm)/plasma creatinine (mg/100 ml… (More)
