    Impaired grip strength in children with congenital heart disease

    Physical fitness is an important aspect of wellness. In 569 long term survivors of CHD surgery both grip strength & health-related physical fitness (a 5 parameter composite) were reduced but the reductions were unrelated. Grip strength is easily assessed but is not a surrogate for the more complex tool.

    Anaemia in childhood is a global health problem, however the WHO thresholds for haemoglobin levels & definition of anaemia during infancy are based on data from over 60 years ago and an update is long overdue. This review, by Larsson et al, of haemoglobin levels and reference intervals in Swedish infants reveals much narrower red blood cell reference intervals during infancy, highlighting the necessity of age definitions when presenting reference intervals.
