The online calculator helps you to calculate the concentration of calcium.
This technique is common in clinical practice, but a number of studies made on the subject of sufficient reliability and sensitivity of corresponding correction formulas.
Accurate assessment allows to obtain a direct measurement of the concentration of ionized form of calcium.
Here are two formulas which are used to assess the level of total plasma calcium corrected for albumin content of the plasma:
Total plasma calcium (corrected) (mg/DL) = measured calcium levels plasma (mg/DL) + 0.8*(4 - measured albumin level of plasma (g/DL)).
Total plasma calcium (corrected) (mmol/l) = measured level of plasma calcium (mmol/l) + 0.02*(40 - measured albumin level of plasma (g/l)).
