Greetings Colleagues. A quick question: In an emergency setting of OTP (SAM prevalence rate of 7%), in OTP admission, what percent of admitted kids are to be expected to have admission MUAC 11.4cm, given that the admission criteria for OTP is <11.5cm? In some situations it was found that about 30% of kids were being admitted with MUAC 11.4cm. Any experience, information, reference materials will be appreciated in this area to better understand this admission on nearer to the cut off point.

Warm regards,
