ARCHETYPE Growth velocity (openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.growth_velocity.v0)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.growth_velocity.v0
ConceptGrowth velocity
DescriptionThe rate of growth, or change in growth measurements, over a period of time.
UseTo record the rate of growth for common measurements, such as body length/height, head circumference and body weight, over a known period of time. The growth velocity will usually be positive, especially in childhood, although there may be circumstances where it is neccessary to record a negative velocity, for example in situations of loss of height with age.
MisuseNot to be used to record the actual point-in-time measurements for body length/height, head circumference and body weight. Use the appropriate OBSERVATION archetypes for this purpose - OBSERVATION.height, OBSERVATION.head_circumference or OBSERVATION.body_weight. Not to be used to record the actual change in measurements over actual, identified time periods for body length/height, head circumference and body weight. Use the interval event model and the 'Change' mathematical function in appropriate OBSERVATION archetypes for this purpose - OBSERVATION.height, OBSERVATION.head_circumference or OBSERVATION.body_weight.
PurposeTo record the rate of growth for common measurements, over a known period of time.
