Seidl et al derived gender-specific equations for the ratio of total body water (TBW) to blood water. This ratio is the same as the correction factor "r" used in the Widmark equation for the ratio of total body to blood ethanol concentration. The authors are from the University of Erlanger-Nurnberg in Germany.
