Wennesland et al developed several equations for predicting the plasma volume in adult males. The authors are from the University of California San Francisco and University of California at Berkeley.
NOTE: The authors are the same as in the next section.
Subjects were adult males mostly in their 20's and 30's.
plasma volume in mL =
= (29.7 * (body height in cm)) - 2770
= (19.6 * (body weight in kg)) + 1050
= (19.9 * (height in cm)) + (13.1 * (weight in kg)) - 2000
= (1580 * (BSA in square meter)) - 520
• The standard deviations were from 240 to 260 mL.
• The coefficient of variation is around 10%.
