Strictly speaking, as a reference chart describes the anthropometry of a given population, we need as many reference charts as the number of different populations, no matter whether their anthropometric differences are ascribable to ethnic characteristics or to environmental, nutritional, socioeconomic and health conditions.

Several neonates at term have poor effect on the precision of estimates at low GA. Basic Science to Clinical Care. Views Read Edit View history.

Even lubcehnco an accurate neonatal standard were available, its clinical use could be questionable: Articles from Archives of Disease in Childhood. Early in her career, she worked with obstetrics chairman E. 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.

As asserted by Karlberg et al24 clinicians seem to prefer local references when communicating with patients and their parents, and do not seem to take seriously any attempt to establish an international standard.

Customised fetal growth chart: An alternative proxy is based on the prediction of birth weight based on early ultrasound assessments of fetal growth 9: Do we really need, however, as many standards as the number of lubchejco populations?


Neonatal anthropometric charts: what they are, what they are not

This page was last edited on 28 Decemberat If the main reason for the differences emerging by comparison between different reference charts is the inequality in health between poor and rich populations, these differences tend to vanish when the restrictive exclusion criteria that define a standard population are adopted.

Lula Olga Lubchenco — was an American pediatrician. ByLubchenco noted that a high percentage of her former preterm patients were developing blindness from an eye condition known as retrolental fibroplasia RLFwhich was later renamed retinopathy of prematurity ROP.

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. Bamberg C, Kalache K D. Paediatr Perinat Epidemiol 17 — Lubchenco was a private-practice charg and a faculty member at the University of Colorado School of Medicine for a short time before she was asked to head Colorado General Hospital’s Premature Infant Center on what was supposed to be an interim basis.

So far, there is insufficient evidence that this alternative method performs better than those based on fetal or neonatal charts.
