Do You Use a GFR Calculator?

If you're currently using a GFR calculator on your PDA or smartphone, you should know that the CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) has proposed a new equation to calculate GFR. If you're a medical student or resident and you get asked to calculate a GFR, your PDA or smartphone may not be adequte. Read about the new formula here: How Do You Calculate GFR?

I'm sure we'll soon see a new PDA/smartphone application that includes the CKD-EPI equation for GFR.
