Hypertension in Children

I will be doing a two hour lecture in early October 2009 on Hypertension. I may touch on the subject of High Blood Pressure in that lecture, but in the meantime see the 2004 Guidelines on High Blood Pressure in Children and Adolescents at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.

Remember, Blood Pressure norms in children and adolescents are determined by sex, age and height! See the document above for appropriate blood pressure tables.
