DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.002

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.

The Prevalence of Elevated Blood Pressure in Adolescents in Nassau, The Bahamas

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.114
Pages: 
17–22
Synopsis: 
The estimated prevalence of elevated blood pressure in Bahamian adolescents is relatively high. The prevalence of 8.9% is comparable to those in the region. Researchers advise yearly screening in reducing the cardiovascular disease risk profile.

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.
