Blood Pressure Percentiles for Girls (2 - 17 years)

 
Input:
 
Age  
Height  
Systolic BP  
Diastolic BP  

 
Results:
 
Height Percentile  
 
Systolic BP Percentile  
Diastolic BP Percentile  
 
Threshold for Stage II hypertension*
(defined as 99th percentile plus 5 mmHg)
SBP Threshold  
DBP Threshold  
 

 

Systolic BP Percentile Interpretation

 
Percentile < 90: Normal Systolic Blood Pressure
Percentile >= 90 and < 95: Prehypertensive Systolic Blood Pressure
Percentile >= 95: Hypertensive Systolic Blood Pressure

 

 

Diastolic BP Percentile Interpretation

 
Percentile < 90: Normal Diastolic Blood Pressure
Percentile >= 90 and < 95: Prehypertensive Diastolic Blood Pressure
Percentile >= 95: Hypertensive Diastolic Blood Pressure

 
 
Notes
  • In this calculator, the subject's blood pressure percentiles are based on age and height percentile.
  • Stage I hypertension is defined as either Systolic BP or Diastolic BP between the 95th percentile and the 99th percentile plus 5 mmHg.
  • Stage II hypertension is defined as either Systolic BP or Diastolic BP greater than the 99th percentile plus 5 mmHg.
  • Children and adolescents whose BP exceeds 120/80 mmHg are also considered prehypertensive.
