    MELDNa/MELD-Na Score for Liver Cirrhosis

    Adds sodium to the MELD model for liver cirrhosis.


    Note: The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network recently incorporated sodium into their new MELD Score as of January 2016, using a different model than MELD-Na. We recommend using the new MELD Score primarily.
    Why Use

    The MELD-Na may improve upon the MELD Score for liver cirrhosis.
