|Title:||Growth Charts||Ability to exclude data points from growth charts|
|Description:||Anthropometric measures and trends in growth are central to the prevision of pediatric care. Abnormal growth is often the first sign of underlying chronic illness. In addition, body size is necessary for the dosing of most drugs in pediatrics. In general, there are three main direct measures - head circumference, length/height, and weight. Body mass index is calculated based on weight and height.||For all growth charts the system SHOULD allow for the exclusion of selected data points, as in when a patient presents with an acute abnormality that affects the measurement (e.g., acute dehydration).|
