  • Descrição: We evaluated 2597 adolescents, 12 to 18 years old (1283 females) from High Schools in Buenos Aires. All subjects completed a record at home, with personal and family history. Weight, height, waist and hip were measured without shoes and in light clothes. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured twice in the sitting position. 36% of these adolescents had never had their blood pressure measured. Percentiles obtained were similar to those of the Task Force. 6.4% of females and 11.3% of males had their blood pressures ≥ 95th Percentile, and 9.9% and 8.7% between 90 and 95th P, respectively. Blood pressure had a significant correlation with weight, height, waist and hip (p<0.0001). Adolescents offspring of hypertensive parents have an OR=1.58 of having blood pressure>95th P (95% CI: 1.15 to 2.16). 6.4% of females and 6.2% of males were obese (BMI≥95P) and 13% and 17% respectevily were overweighed (BMI between 85 and 95P).
