Moore et al reported equations for predicting extracellular water in adults.
Patient selection: males from 20 to 84 years of age, females from 20 to 74 years of age
(2) body weight in kilograms
(3) extracellular water in liters
extracellular body water in liters for a male =
= (0.135 * (body weight)) + 7.35
extracellular body water in liters for a female =
= (0.134 * (body weight)) + 5.27
