  • Who is the intended audience?: Doctors and nurses evaluating children for high blood pressure.
  • Will you support feature X?: If there is enough interest.
  • Why did you make this tool?: A relative was frustrated with the existing way of doing things.
  • Why isn’t this free?: To recover the cost of the developer licenses.
  • What is with the animal?: That is a baby Capybara. I initially created this tool with the abbreviation CABP and thought it looked like a kid’s misspelling of the animal name.
  • Why don’t you add the recommended course of treatment?: So I don’t get in trouble from the FDA. This tool is not a medical device, and I am not a physician. But as a general rule: “Eat less and exercise more”.

Hello! Are you any closer to completing an android version of this app? It’s a great time saver.

Rachel: Yes! I have an alpha version built now and will release the production version likely this week. Keep an eye out for “Pediatric Blood Pressure Guide” in the Play Store with the same icon as above.

Can you please make it to Android????? I’m a pediatric nephrology NP and wul love to quit stilling my docs phone! It is an awesome app!!!

Sorry this took so long. I have sent you an alpha release invite.

Great App! When will you had 5th percentiles? Using this for hypotension would also be super helpful!

I never considered it as they were not part of the original paper’s tables, and you are the first to suggest it. The app is primarily in maintenance mode right now.

Great idea! Can you send me a link to the authoritative source for the 5th% data data, or are you talking about using the formulas to calculate it on the fly?

Also, are people interested in additional translations? If so, let me know if you know native speakers who could assist!

Great job on the application continue the great work just a request if possible if you can add an interval by 1 month

Could you please elaborate? Do you mean being able to specify 1 year and 1, 2,3 months? Or do you mean being able to track a patient over a course of several months?

Translation: “Why can’t the size be raised more than 84 cm?”
Thank you for your question. The paper and the dataset the app relies upon only specifies certain combinations of age and height/length. For me to go beyond that would be making unauthorized medical decisions.

Hi! Thank you for this app, we love it and use it in our health center. We would like to be able to use it on desktop to fit in well with our charting, have you considered creating one?

That is great! I am glad that it is helping so many people. I have not given much thought to making a desktop app, and you are the first to ask, though I certainly could make one. Does your Center primarily use Mac, Linux, or Windows?

Hi! Thanks for your reply. I’m surprised no one else has asked! Anyway we use primarily windows during patient care though we use your app on iPhones owned by the organization.

Please also included the fifth percentile coz its needed for us to know if the patient is hypotension

Great idea! Can you send me a link to the authoritative source for the 5th% data? This app is based upon the hypertension paper so I would need ot know the approved hypo values.
