Table 2 Calculation of normal extravascular lung water for males and females

From: Validation of extravascular lung water measurement by single transpulmonary thermodilution: human autopsy study

Male Female
EVLW = [0.56 × normal lung weight (in grams)] - 58 = [0.56 × 878] - 58 = 433.7 EVLW = [0.56 × normal lung weight (in grams)] - 58 = [0.56 × 636] - 58 = 298.2
Standard deviation: 189.8 Standard deviation: 134.4
Normal EVLW = 433.7 ± 189.8 mL Normal EVLW = 298.2 ± 134.4 mL
Normal EVLWp = 7.5 ± 3.3 mL/kg Normal EVLWp = 7.3 ± 3.3 mL/kg
  1. EVLW, extravascular lung water; EVLWp, extravascular lung water indexed to predicted body weight.
