Online calculator to find the maximum loss of blood allowable for a person. It is based on initial and final hematocrit, weight and average blood volume.

ABL Calculation

  • Gender:

    Male

    Female

  • Weight (kg):

     
  • Hi (%):

     
  • Hf (%):

     
  • Average Blood Volume (ml/kg):

     
  •  

  • Allowable Blood Loss (mL)

    indication

Formula:
ABL = EBV x [ ( Hi - Hf ) / Hav ]

Where,
   ABL =Actual Blood loss,
   EBV = Estimated Blood Volume,
   Hi = initial Hematocrit,
   Hf = final Hematocrit,
   Hav = average of (Hi and Hf).


Formula:

 

ABL = EBV x [ ( Hi - Hf ) / Hav ]
 
Where,
   ABL =Actual Blood loss,
   EBV = Estimated Blood Volume,
   Hi = initial Hematocrit,
   Hf = final Hematocrit,
   Hav = average of (Hi and Hf).

 


During surgery, allowable blood loss (ABL) calculator can be used by the surgeons to determine a patient's blood loss limit. This calculation can be applied for haemorrages too.
