EuroGrowth : program for monitoring the growth of children

HASCHKE, F
VAN'T HOF, M A

This CD-ROM contains EuroGrowth charts that have been created for health professionals to individually track the physical growth of children from birth to five years of age. The user can add, monitor and print individual growth data, calculate growth velocity, measure influence of breastfeeding on growth, modify growth by mid-parental height, correct growth for gestational age of premature infants and calculate z-scores.

Notes:
The data is drawn from growth montoring in Western Europe, and should be interpreted or adjusted before being applied in developing countries. However, the rate of growth described, and the tools developed to monitor and calculate the growth of young children, may still be useful to developing country health workers
