Blood Pressure and its Correlates in Tobagonian Adolescents

Issue: 
Pages: 
305–12
Synopsis: 
In this study, the authors examined the age-specific patterns and correlates of blood pressure among Tobagonian adolescents attending secondary school. The findings suggest that the higher levels of elevated blood pressure observed were primarily due to excess weight and adiposity.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine age-specific patterns and correlates of blood pressure (BP) in Tobagonian adolescents.

Methods: Blood pressure, weight and heights were measured using standardized procedures. Age-height and gender-specific BP levels were established and compared with those established for adolescents in the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Jamaica.

Anthropometry and Blood Pressure Changes in a Caribbean Adolescent Population of African Ancestry: An Evaluation of Longitudinal Data Using a Multilevel Mixed Regression Approach

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.002
Pages: 
674–83
Synopsis: 
The effect of anthropometry on longitudinal blood pressure changes was evaluated and compared to similar estimates generated from cross-sectional data from the same population. Findings suggest that anthropometry is an important covariate of blood pressure changes during adolescence and that age-related mean blood pressure changes from longitudinal data were similar to those generated by cross-sectional data.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of growth pattern on blood pressure changes in an adolescent population of African ancestry based on longitudinal data and to compare this with estimates derived from cross-sectional data.
