Calculates the MELD score to quantify end-stage liver disease for transplant planning.
MELD Score = (0.957 * ln(Serum Cr) + 0.378 * ln(Serum Bilirubin) + 1.120 * ln(INR) + 0.643 ) * 10 (if hemodialysis, value for Creatinine is automatically set to 4.0)
Note: If any score is <1, the MELD assumes the score is equal to 1.
Calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care nor should they substitute for clinical judgement. disclaimer
