This multidisciplinary review of all aspects of pediatric hypertension is the most state-of-the-art treatment of the subject currently available. The topics covered range from the regulation and assessment of blood pressure in children, to its evaluation and day-to-day management. The authors not only outline the pathophysiology of hypertension in children, but also offer current information on blood pressure measurement, the proper techniques for diagnosis, the assessment of hypertensive end organ damage even in childhood, and the use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Additional chapters address the genetic background of hypertension, the characterization of the disease from infancy through the teen years, and the appropriate treatment of hypertension-with and without drugs-including details of current studies of antihypertensive medications and their use.
