Resting pulse rate of children and young adults associated with blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors.
Few researchers have investigated the resting pulse rate of children and young adults as a risk factor or indicator for subsequent cardiovascular morbidity in a representative sample of the total population.
Data from the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey for persons ages 6-24 years revealed mean resting pulse rates that declined with age until ages 12-16, were higher in females than males, and in whites than blacks.
At age 12-17 and 18-24, blood pressure and body temperature showed consistent, independent, positive associations with pulse rate in whites.
