1. Ideal Weight (Devine, 1974), Predicted Body Weight (PBW) used in ARDS-NET Tidal Volume calculation
1. Weight (kg) = 50 + 2.3 * (htIn - 60)
2. Weight (kg) = 50 + 0.91 * (htCm - 152.4)
2. Ideal Weight (Robinson, 1983)
1. Weight (kg) = 52 + 1.9 * (htIn - 60)
3. Ideal Weight (Miller, 1983)
1. Weight (kg) = 56.2 + 1.41 * (htIn - 60)
4. Ideal Weight (Hamwi, (1964)
1. Weight (kg) = 48.0 + 2.7 * (htIn - 60)
5. Ideal Weight (Approximate quick calculation, modified from Broca's Index, 1871)
1. Weight (lb) = 106 + 6 * (htIn - 60)
6. Calculated values (using Devine Formula)
1. Ht 155 cm: 52 kg
2. Ht 160 cm: 57 kg
3. Ht 165 cm: 61 kg
4. Ht 170 cm: 66 kg
5. Ht 175 cm: 71 kg
