Percentage of SAM-related-deaths of children that would be excluded from treatment in a MUAC-only program. Simulation of the effect of various case loads and case fatality rates for children with SAM by MUAC-only, WHZ-only and Both criteria. The data gives the percent of total SAM-related-deaths that would occur in children excluded from treatment in a MUAC-only program. Case Loads and Case Fatality Rates for: S-muac = MUAC < 115 mm with WHZ > = −3Z: S-whz = WHZ < −3Z with MUAC > 115 mm: S-both = MUAC < 115 mm and WHZ < −3Z. The colours represent the percent of deaths occurring in cases that would be excluded from treatment in such a program: Red 75–100%: Pink 50–75%: Orange 25–50%: green 10–25%: Blue 0–10%
