stima dell'altezza tramite misurazione dell'ulna

Vi presentiamo una tabella di stima delle altezze prelevando la misurazione ulnare del Pz.

Gomito>Estremità ulnare distale.

Molto utile per avere rapidamente tutti i valori per il calcolo del BMI in fase di CAREPLAN

tutti i valori sono espressi in cm
