A longitudinal evaluation of blood pressure in children.

Abstract

Blood pressure levels obtained on two occasions, one year apart, were evaluated among 212 children. An overall correlation of .65 was obtained for systolic pressure and .43 for diastolic pressure. The results suggest that adult levels of correlation are not reached in childhood and that screening programs must consider the relative lability of children's measurements in establishing referral criteria.
