  1. The LOINC Groups project is a work in progress. The contents of this file may change from release to release as we receive feedback from users and refine our processes.
  2. The contents of the file and the groupings MUST be validated by the user prior to implementation in any aspect of clinical care. We have created Groups that may be useful in specific contexts, but these Groups have not been vetted for use in either patient care or research and should be used with caution.
  3. More information on LOINC Groups is available on our website.

Group Description

This parent group contains individual groups for non-fetal body weight, body height and head circumference, where each group contains terms that represent the more routine measurements for each parameter. Each group is defined as "routine" based on the following: 1) they do not include terms with a Method of 'Estimated'; 2) body weight terms only include the challenges 'usual','used for drug calculation','with clothes','without clothes' and do not include any of the 'pre-' or 'post-' measurements; 3) body height terms only include the challenges 'lying' and 'standing' and do not include any 'pre-' and 'post-' measurements.
