Visualize and print pediatric growth charts



You can display and print the pediatric growth charts of your patients in order to see if they follow the regular curve for Canadians as established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and to determine their percentile rank.

  1. Click on the title of the Vital signs summary box to open the Vital signs grid.
  2. Click on the printer icon at the top-right corner of the Vital signs grid.
  3. Next, you can check the box of your choice:
    1. 0-24 months: Head circumference + weight/length
    2. 0-24 months: Length/age + weight/age
    3. 2-19 years: BMI/age
    4. 2-19 years: Height/age + weight/age
  4. Click the Print button to open the chart in a new tab. The red dots displayed on the chart show the patient’s position in the graph.
  5. You can then print the chart if needed.
