  1. Blood pressure tracking in Korean schoolchildren.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Many studies have examined the blood pressure tracking among children and adolescents, but the results have been mixed.

    This study examined blood pressure tracking in 304 Korean school children following them for 5 years from age 6 to 11.

    Methods

    In addition to the examination of relative ranking, in percentile groups, of blood pressure and time-lag correlation analysis, we used the McMahan's tracking index, tau (tau), which indicates the proportion of variation attributable to tracking apart from the natural growth (increase) component.
