Updated CPG: Hypertension in children and adolescents

The Hypertension in children and adolescents CPG has been updated.

The Key points for the CPG are

  1. Severe hypertension requires urgent consultation and management.  Hypertension associated with encephalopathy is a medical emergency
  2. All hypertension in children requires monitoring and follow-up
  3. Blood pressure should be measured annually in healthy children
  4. Where possible, abnormal machine BP measurement should be confirmed, preferably with a manual BP, ensuring appropriately sized cuff is used for accurate measurement

This CPG was previously called Hypertension.
