Using the updated American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Clinical Practice Guideline external icon, a CDC study shows that about 1 in 25 youth ages 12 to 19 have hypertension, and 1 in 10 has elevated blood pressure (previously called “prehypertension”).   The combined prevalence of elevated blood pressure and hypertension in children is around 6%, or 3% for each.1, 2 The combined prevalence increases . The normal blood pressure range, while steadily increasing with age, will shift based on the child's height. The BP reference data include the 50th, 90th, 95th, and 99th percentiles for age and height for both boys and girls. So the graphs on this page show the upper half of the blood pressure range found in children. Normal BP is defined as.   But don't use this news as an excuse to book a beach vacation just yet. For the new study, appearing Friday in the Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers examined blood pressure readings from more than , patients at nearly 2, clinics over three years, starting in January More than a third of the patients were.
