Specifically, for application the patient's length-based measurements zone if the child appears overweight. Thus, incorporating a visual estimate of whether the child is over-weight provides a simple method to predict weight that appears to be clinically relevant given the rise of obesity in the United States.

I ordered this for our recent EDAP inspection and I must say it was better than I expected. I prefer this over the Broselow Tape, it has more medications that are regularly used in a code along with several other useful tools.
