Updated and revised, this is a comprehensive sourcebook of reference data for health professionals involved in evaluating people with abnormal features or syndromes. It includes many graphs, tables, and charts needed by clinicians to define normal patterns of growth and provides standards of comparison for possible congenital abnormalities. Numerous "how-to" illustrations give the step-by-step guidance needed to ensure that standardised measurements are properly taken for accurate recordkeeping. Designed for ease of use, the pocket-sized book has a durable plastic cover, making it ideal for use in the ward or clinic. Measurements are given in both Imperial and Metric.
