Blood Pressure Measurement
Hi Helen

I am afraid that I have another question ...

My daughter participates in an investigation re weaning to solids in a well-reputed institute. She had her first examination today, and had her blood pressure measured. The sphygmomanometer was at 180 mmHg, which seems rather high for a baby? She has many dark red, blue petechiae as large as pinheads on both forearms, as a blood test was taken from her other arm.

Is this normal when you make tests on babies? At first sight, I consider to withdraw her from the investigation, on the other hand, I find it a very good idea to make this kind of research ...

What is your opinion? Should I ask them not to test her blood nor her blood pressure?

Best regards
The mother of a pirate
