Abstract

The study provides oscillometrically measured BP standards for Chinese children, with age-related and sex-related height-specific and weight-specific percentiles. Implications of the findings are discussed. Screening by sex-specific BP-height percentile charts, and then if high, reference to the BP-sex-age-weight table, is suggested.
