Semin Fetal Neonatal Med 9 — The large differences between charts probably are of merely trivial consequence when charts are used in monitoring individual children.

The new intrauterine gowth curves created and validated in this study, based on a contemporary, large, racially diverse US sample, provide clinicians with an updated tool for growth assessment in US NICUs.

Critical sample size concerns the more external eg, the 3rd and 97th centiles at lower GA, therefore, attention should focus on the number of severely preterm neonates, who are more difficult to recruit.

Growth Charts version 1. Differences between reference charts reflect the different anthropometric characteristics of chatr neonates belonging to different populations and also the different prevalences of risk factors for prenatal growth in those populations.

The AAP recommends chadt all newborns be classified by birthweight and gestational age. Acta Obstet Gynaecol Scand 69 — The revisions may take 5 years. Determined by maternal history, clinical examination, and ultrasound examination. Female Height chart Weight chart Head circumference chart.
