Rad·ford nom·o·gram

(rad'fŏrd),
a nomogram used to predict necessary tidal volume for artificial respiration on the basis of respiratory rate, body weight, and gender; correction factors are supplied for activity, fever, altitude, metabolic acidosis, and alterations in dead space.

Etymology: Edward P. Radford, Jr., American physiologist, b. 1922
a mathematical chart device used in respiratory therapy to estimate combined tidal volumes and rates for mechanical ventilation. It is based on the three parameters of body weight, sex, and respiratory rate.
