What is the average blood pressure for a 7 year old girl?

A bit complicated: It depends on their age and how tall they are. For a 7 year old who is at the 50th percentile for their height (half the kids their age are taller and half are shorter), the 50th percentile for blood pressure is 96/57. A more important question is what is a high blood pressure. For a 7 year old at the 50th % for height, about 109/71 is above 90% for bp. See: http://1.Usa.Gov/tzhane.

Close to adult : The normal is between 90/60 and 120/80. However this varies slightly by height as well. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/hypertension/child_tbl.htm http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/health/public/heart/hbp/bp_child_pocket/bp_child_pocket.Pdf.

Average = 109/66: Once you get above 123/79 at that age you are in a higher than expected range.

Cuff size??: You won't get an accurate reading on most 10 year old kids if you're using a home blood pressure monitor. Young kids need small cuffs for the most part. A too large cuff will give you low BP readings. Likewise a cuff too small will give you elevated BP readings.
