Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Individual Predictive Equations (2019)

Evidence for Predictive Equations 

Eleven equations were tested for validity in predicting resting metabolic rate (RMR) in adults with COPD. Three methods for predicting total energy expenditure (TEE) in adults with COPD were also tested.

The evidence for each prediction method for RMR and TEE is below. For a summary of all predictive methods below, see Summary of All Predictive Equations (2019) in Methods to Estimate Energy Requirements (2019) in the left navigation bar.
