Yet another publication!

Postby jasonwalker » Wed Oct 08, 2014 6:48 pm

This one has a compound nomogram to calculate Lean Body Mass and Ideal Body Weight in overweight children. (Ideal is what you should weigh; lean is what you weigh without your fat. Overweight people often have more muscle bulk, as a result of carrying the extra weight around, so lean and ideal are different.)

The article is open access, viewable here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/anae.12860/full

Interestingly this one has a comparison study of nomogram versus calculator, as operated by shop-floor clinicians. Spoiler: the nomogram wins. Fewer mistakes, and faster. Similar accuracy.

Just had a quick read through - that's a nice article!

I have saved to reread it again more carefully.
