Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2011, vol.76, n.1, pp.26-31. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262011000100006.

Background: Nutritional assessment is a widely used criterion for prognostic purposes and clinical management. In obstetrics, maternal and neonatal body mass Índex and neonatal ponderal Índex, respectively, are used. Objective: To construct bidimensional tables to facilítate indexes obtaining process in clinical practice, moreover, graphs also are recommend for nutritional categorize using this indexes. Methods: The anthro-pometric indexes that associate weight with height were calculated by their respectively formulas: weight divided by height squared or cubed, depending if body mass index or neonatal ponderal index is needed. For the subsequently categorization of both maternal and neonatal nutritional status, these indexes have to be judged in terms of gestational age graphics. For this process, we recommend national standard references. Results: Two bidimensional tables were built to calcúlate the indexes and were delimited according to anthropometric averages of our population. Conclusion: These tables will facilítate the obtaining of indexes by the clinicians and, at the same time, the nutritional status diagnosis of pregnant women and their newborn.
