For example:<br /><br />Metric Units: BMI = Weight (kg) / (Height (m) x Height (m)) <br />English Units: BMI = Weight (lb) / (Height (in) x Height (in)) x 703 <br /><br />I assume that the model would need to account for both ways.<br /> <br />2) LDL Cholesterol <br /><br />Total Cholesterol - HDL Cholesterol - (Triglycerides/5.0(mg/dL))<br /><br />Note: This is based on Friedewald's formula. There is an Iranian formula, but I'm not sure how common it is.<br /><br />3) Time difference between the ED departure time and the Inpatient admission time within an episode of care.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
