Blood pressure (BP) is variable in children and this could affect BP assessment, but the magnitude of within-visit BP variability (BPV) over consecutive measurements has never been investigated. This study aimed to determine the direction and magnitude of, and factors affecting, within-visit BPV in children and adolescents. BP was recorded among 3047 children (aged 12 years [95%CI 12, 13], males 52%) from the 2011–2013 Australian Health Survey. BPV was defined as the absolute difference… CONTINUE READING
