Are neonatal anthropometric charts intrauterine growth charts? The use of charts, such as those given by Lubchenco et al, 1 based on the distribution of measurements taken on neonates with different gestational age, should be restricted to the auxological assessment of babies at birth. These charts, now called neonatal anthropometric charts, must not be confused with the intrauterine growth charts, which are a tool for monitoring fetal growth, based on ultrasound measurements of anthropometric traits during pregnancy: preterm births are abnormal events and preterm neonates cannot be equated to fetuses of the same gestational age who will be born at term. SGA includes infants who have not achieved their own growth potential, because of maternal, uterine, placental and fetal factors, 5 , 6 as well as small but otherwise healthy infants. IUGR refers to a clinical and functional condition and denotes fetuses unable to achieve their own growth potential: a fetus with IUGR would have been larger, without adverse environmental or genetic factors affecting growth.

Mujinn Pediatrics 11 — A comprehensive auxological evaluation of the neonate should consider not only weight, length and head circumference at birth but also fetal ultrasound biometry and Doppler velocimetry. Pediatrics E1 [ PubMed ]. Support Center Support Center. Highly restrictive criteria aiming to exclude all neonates exposed to any known risk factor for intrauterine growth define the characteristics of infants who fully expressed their growth potential.
Neonatal anthropometric charts: what they are, what they are not The target population is the population on which the chart is built and lubcheenco which the chart will apply. Her work led to the popularization of the term low birth weightwhich underscored the fact that such babies may or may not have been born early. Basic Science to Clinical Care. Conclusion The lubchehco charts currently in use largely differ as regards inclusion and exclusion criteria, techniques and instruments for measurement, accuracy of assessment of gestational age and methods to compute centiles.
To avoid the methodological weakness of clinical use of a reference, a set of exclusion criteria can be defined, concerning mothers for example, hypertension, diabetes or renal diseases, fetuses genetic disorders or congenital anomaliesor uterine lubcbenco placental factors. Customised fetal growth chart: Lubchenco retired from clinical practice inbut she lubfhenco a member of university committees until her death.
Do we really need, however, as many standards as the number of different cart In this case, only one standard could apply to all populations. The new World Health Organization child growth standards are based on such an assumption. The use of charts, such as those given by Lubchenco et al1 based on the distribution of measurements taken on neonates with different gestational age, should be restricted to the auxological lubchenfo of babies at birth.
Riv Ital Ped 25 — An alternative proxy is based on the prediction of birth weight based on early ultrasound assessments of fetal growth 9: Should neonatal charts be updated? Lubchenco was born in Russian Turkestan in Last menstrual period confirmed by early ultrasound assessment.
Growth Chart Kurva Pertumbuhan WHO Pada tahun , WHO mengeluarkan sebuah kurva pertumbuhan standar yang menggambarkan pertumbuhan anak umur bulan di lingkungan yang diyakini dapat mendukung pertumbuhan optimal anak. Untuk membuat kurva pertumbuhan ini, WHO melakukan penelitian multisenter pada tahun sampai dengan tujuan untuk menggambarkan pertumbuhan anak yang hidup di lingkungan yang tidak memiliki faktor penghambat pertumbuhan. Penelitian ini terdiri atas dua bagian; pertama adalah penelitian longitudinal subyek diikuti dari lahir sampai usia 2 tahun ; dan kedua adalah penelitian cross-sectional pada anak usia 1,5 sampai 5 tahun. Panjang badan diukur pada posisi tidur telentang untuk anak usia tahun dan setelah usia 2 tahun tinggi badan diukur sebagai tinggi berdiri.
