Neonatal Hypertension

Blood pressure (BP) in neonates depends on various factors, such as gestational age, postnatal age, and birth weight. This is often caused by a blood clot in a kidney blood vessel, a complication of having an umbilical arterial catheterization.

      Neonates normal blood pressure

      Neonate (96 h)

     systolic pressure          67-84

     Diastolic pressure       35-53

 

The etiology of hypertension in infants and adolescents is varied; however, the prevalence of pediatric primary hypertension is increasing. Hypertension can be detected in 1 to 2.5% of all neonates. Early diagnosis and appropriate management of hypertension in infants and adolescents is important to prevent the development of hypertensive end organ disease.
