Post a reply: Brachial perimeter - variation

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

Hello,

Could you tell me the variations considered as "normal" of the brachial perimeter? (in 1 week? 15 days? a month?)

Indeed, I often notice large variations (increase or decrease of 10mm / 20mm / 5mm in 1 week for example) in the medical records of children followed in nutrition centers for acute malnutrition.
I suspect it comes from the lack of sensitivity / misuse of the MUAC bracelet but could you guide me by giving me a "fork" deemed normal if the child takes or lose weight.

I thank you in advance for your help
