Blood pressure in the percentile ≥90 - <95 in the FR guidelines is known as prehypertension, with a prevalence of 14.3 % and in the AAP guidelines as elevated blood pressure with a prevalence of 16.3 %. The prevalence of hypertension with FR guidelines was 14.9 % and with AAP guidelines was 12.8 %.
