Muhammad Asif, Muhammad Aslam, Saima Altaf
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(1):6-11.   Published online January 22, 2018

Mid-upper-arm circumference (MUAC) is considered an alternative screening method for obesity. The aims of this investigation were to examine the ability of MUAC to correctly identify children with elevated body mass index (BMI) and to determine the best MUAC cutoff point for identification of children with high BMI.


Anthropometric measurements (height, weight, and MUAC) from a cross-sectional sample of 7,921 Pakistani...

Height-specific blood pressure (BP) is the standard parameter used to diagnose childhood hypertension. However, there has been some argument that weight may be a better variable than height in the reference BP standards. Therefore, before assessing the BP status using the reference BP standards, a basic understanding of the fundamental association of weight and height with BP is required.

Secular trends of body sizes in Korean children and adolescents: from 1965 to 2010
Jin Soo Moon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(11):436-442.   Published online November 30, 2011

An anthropometric survey is one of the most important approaches to use when evaluating the health status of children. Secular trends in body sizes, such as height, weight, head circumference, chest circumference, and body mass index showed significant changes over 40 years in Korea. A series of periodic surveys were conducted in 1967, 1975, 1985, 1997, and 2005 by the...

Postnatal change of Atrial natriuretic peptide in newborn Infants
Eun Sook Kim, Heng Mi Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(9):1193-1197.   Published online September 15, 1992
Atrial natriuretic peptide(ANP)has been described as a part of the regulatory system of volume homeostasis. The role of ANP in postnatal volume hmestasis was investigated in 27 normal newborn infants during the early postnatal period. Plasma Mean plasma concentration of plasma ANP was 24.7¡¾13.8 pg/13.8pg/ml on the 1st day, 56.2¡¾60.0pg/ml on the 3-5th day and 35.0¡¾22.0pg/ml on the 7th day....
