Physiologic stability in severe acute malnutrition

Partnering with the St. Louis Nutrition Project, clinician-researchers from Washington University in St. Louis are studying the relationship between heart rate variability and severe malnutrition in Malawi.  The use of this non-invasive means of determining physiologic stability may improve the ability to identify children who need more advanced medical treatment.
