Post a reply: Reliability of MUAC in monitoring and Percentage of SAM cases developing complications.

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

1. How much MUAC is reliable to recruit and exit the case? With change of 1 to 2 mm the status of the case has been changed. If there are 3 measurers, there will be 3 different readings of a case. According to guidelines 5 mm difference is acceptable between two measurers (worker and monitor). 2. How much percentage of SAM cases can develop complications in OTP? What is a difference between morbidity and complication of a SAM cases? If a SAM case has fever (temperature <101.3 F) this is morbidity and if temp is >101.3 F then this is complication.
