Determining the systemic arterial blood pressure (SABP) is one of the most important tools for evaluation of children’s health. The normal variation of children’s SABP is between 5th-95th percentile curve. SABP is affected by various factors including weight, gender, height and environmental conditions, therefore we measured the SABP of children in Shahrekord. The sample consisted of 1000, 7-12 years old students (Each sex: 500) randomly selected from 25 primary schools of Shahrekord. We plotted SABP percentile cure on the basis of weight stature and sex. Our results showed that, the most abundant systolic SABP was 100 mmHg (27.7%) and the least abundant was 75 mmHg (1%). For diastolic SABP, the highest and lowest prevalence were 65 mmHg (28.2%) and 45 mmHg (0.1%), respectively. There was a positive correlation between age, weight, sex and height on one hand and SABP on the other hand. The SABP in girl was mildly higher than that of the boys with the same age group.
