Welcome to Pedia BP.
This application was designed and developed to more easily detect hypertension in children and adolescents.
The blood pressure measurement calculator is developed from the National High Blood Pressure Education Program (NHBPEP,2005) Working Group on Children and Adolescents.
The blood pressure measurement, SBP/DBP, are based on manual blood pressure measurements.
In adolescents, BP equal to or exceeding 120/80 mmHg is prehypertension, even if this figure is less than the 90th percentile.
It is critically important that hypertension and pre-hypertension are recognized and appropriately managed to decrease the risk of CAD, CVD, heart failure, CHD, and sleep apnea. Evidence shows that this problem is under-recognized due to a number of factors including lack of provider knowledge regarding the AHA blood pressure recommendations and the National High Blood Pressure Educational Program (NHBPEP) guidelines.
Another issue is the complexity of factors involved in diagnosing HTN in this population delineated by the (NHBPEP) guidelines. The blood pressure tables include 1,904 variables based on gender, age, and height percentile delineated from the CDC development charts.
The existing tables from The Fourth Report on the Diagnosis, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure in Children and Adolescents, which contain hundreds of normal and abnormal blood pressure values based on gender, age, and height percentile, were analyzed and streamlined into a much simplified single user interface. The application makes it easy to identify abnormal blood pressure values in almost any potential care or screening setting. This approach is ideal when blood pressure is measured in any setting.
The application screening tool can aid providers in accurate and timely evaluation of pediatric blood pressure readings, as well as aid in decision making regarding best practice with regard to management of issues identified.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Fixed issue with location of readings.

A must have for Pediatric BP assessment
Clear button has improved the usability of this app. Saves so much time!!!
Will you update the app using the 2017 AAP guidelines on hypertension?
Haven't used it on actual patients yet, but in sample cases it looks good. I do wish the height could be done in inches, but a quick calculation and I can adjust for that/my clinic.
