From nephrology to cardiopulmonary medicine, medical formulas are used to assess and predict physiological states of individuals. Wolfram|Alpha is capable of computing a wide range of physiological and health-related quantities, including blood oxygen level, creatinine clearance and peak expiratory flow.
Use the pregnancy calculator to estimate conception and due dates as well as fetal development.
Find formulas used in general clinical medicine. Compute the size of a catheter from the flow rate and pressure or find your free water deficit based on your body weight and serum sodium level.
Look up cardiovascular and respiratory formulas, including ventricular pumping rate, oxygen delivery rate, peak expiratory flow, respiratory quotient and oxygen index.
Use growth charts and other measurement data to compare the physical development of children. Find weight and height distributions or compute the projected growth of your child.
Compute hemodynamics, such as plasma glucose, blood oxygen level, serum osmolarity and oxygen saturation, in the circulatory system.
Assess kidney function using nephrology formulas that calculate peak urine flow rate and creatinine clearance.
Explore formulas to assess hormone levels. Free and bioavailable testosterone can be computed from serum albumin, testosterone and sex hormone–binding globulin levels.
An Apgar score is a measure of the overall condition of a newborn at birth. Skin color, heart rate, reflexes, muscle tone and respiration are criteria used for the scoring.
Estimate the physiological effect on your body from consuming alcoholic drinks, being in cold water or being exposed to windchill temperatures.
Estimate the risk of ophthalmologic diseases. The intraocular pressure measurement is used to estimate the risk of glaucoma.
