The app additionally performs specialised calculations of blood stress (using NIH 2004 or AAP 2017 references), prolonged obesity measures, waist circumference, arm circumference, triceps and subscapular skinfolds, target (midparental) top, predicted adult top, and peak velocity for healthy youngsters. Citations are provided for each reference vary used for the calculations. Patient-specific data derived from WHO and CDC development charts may be saved on gadget for later retrieval.
