pedbp: Pediatric Blood Pressure

Data and utilities for estimating pediatric blood pressure percentiles by sex, age, and optionally height (stature) as described in Martin (2022) <doi:10.1001/jamanetworkopen.2022.36918>. Blood pressure percentiles for children under one year of age come from Gemelli (1990) <doi:10.1007/BF02171556>. Estimates of blood pressure percentiles for children at least one year of age are informed by data from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) <doi:10.1542/peds.2009-2107C> or from Lo (2013) <doi:10.1542/peds.2012-1292>. The flowchart for selecting the informing data source comes from Martin (2022) <doi:10.1542/hpeds.2021-005998>.
