OBJECTIVE No uniform method for calculating growth velocity (GV) (grams per kilogram per day) among extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants has been reported. Because the calculation of actual GV is so labor intensive, investigators have estimated GV with varying approaches, making comparisons across studies difficult. This study compares the accuracy of 3 mathematical methods used for estimating average GV, namely, 2-point models using the difference between weights at 2 time points divided… CONTINUE READING
