The number of people with hypertension continues to increase every year, it is estimated that by 2025 there will be 1.5 billion people affected by hypertension, and it is estimated that each year 9.4 million people die from hypertension and its complications. Measurement of blood pressure in children and adolescents is needed to detect whether there is a tendency for hypertension in children and adolescents. The management of hypertension in children and adolescents can reduce the prevalence of hypertension in adulthood.
