Vitals calculator for Blood Pressure Percentile

In pediatrics, a normal blood pressure is determined by percentile at wellness exams. It is based on height, age and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It would be nice if there was a calculator built into the vitals section that could determine this percentile.

        Since pediatric blood pressure values vary with age and height, the EMR needs to calculate whether at BP is normal, prehypertensive or hypertensive for a child of a particular height, age and gender and then tracks it over time

        The blood pressure should be set to alert for abnormals for pediatrics which are different than adults and vary by age and ht.

        this should be high on your list. It is a simple spreadsheet, Also I would like the BMI percentile to automatically be calculated again. With the new format I have to open the growth chart every time
