The epidemiology of blood pressure in childhood and adolescence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The phenomena of growth and maturation, which are intrinsic to childhood and adolescence, are also fundamental to the investigation and understanding of the epidemiology of blood pressure during this period of life. As these phenomena are more fully taken into accunt in the design of studies, in screening procedurs, and in interpretation of data, we may gain more satisfactory insights to the causation of high blood pressure and the prediction of serious risks, even during childhood and adolescence.
