A person’s body height.


Body height is used for various reasons, including to measure growth, such as in babies, children or adolescents, to calculate body surface area, to for example calculate the correct amount of medication, or in combination with body weight to calculate the Body Mass Index. Height is also used to determine a person’s nutritional state.

This healthcare information building block offers the option to record a person’s body height.
