About Growth Charts

Path: Clinical tab > Patient Chart button > Vital/Growth > Growth Charts tab

There are 16 charts, including two new body mass index (BMI) for age charts for boys and for girls (ages two to 20 years). Graphs will display only the baseline norms that pertain to the sex of the selected patient.

All percentiles that appear in growth charts and on school/camp forms are calculated using reference data from the National Center for Health Statistics, in collaboration with the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (2000; see http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/ for more information).

The growth charts in Office Practicum also contain complete data sets for WHO and Down Syndrome growth curves. These curves are for viewing only.
