Statistical Analysis of Pediatric Task Force Data Base

2014-08-27 03:57:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To define pediatric sex-specific blood pressure percentiles that were a function of both age and height. Also, to define the precise age at which blood pressure distributions for different racial groups diverged.

Description

BACKGROUND:

Hypertension is a well-recognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease in adults. Furthermore, many studies have shown that there is tracking among longitudinal pediatric blood pressure determinations. An important unresolved goal in pediatric hypertension research is to define at what level of pediatric blood pressure is a child at increased risk for adult hypertension. When the grant was awarded in February 1991, there had been two NHLBI Task Forces in Blood Pressure Control in Children which had published reports in 1977 and 1987. One of the goals of each task force was to define appropriate percentiles for blood pressure in children. In the Second Task Force Report, results from nine large epidemiologic studies were combined into a data base with more than 70,000 readings from which blood pressure percentiles were derived as a function of age and sex. However, many research workers stated that height is more strongly related to blood pressure than age and have urged that Normative data for pediatric blood pressure be demarcated by height rather than age.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Blood pressure percentiles were constructed that were a function of age, sex, race, and height, thus providing a more comprehensive profile of pediatric blood pressure distributions than any previously published work.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.

Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)

Dental care for patients with chronic diseases. These diseases include chronic cardiovascular, endocrinologic, hematologic, immunologic, neoplastic, and renal diseases. The concept does not include dental care for the mentally or physically disabled which is DENTAL CARE FOR DISABLED.
