Newborn blood pressure
what is the normal newborn blood pressure?
The normal blood pressure in a newborn varies with age after birth and state (sleeping, awake, crying, etc.) but is approximately 70 (+/- 9) over 42 (+/- 12) at 24 hours of age. By one month, the normal blood pressure is 85 (+/- 10) over 46 (+/- 9). By 6 months it is about 93 (+/- 14) over 55 (+/-9) and by one year of age it is about 94 (+/-11) over 56 (+/-8).
