Clinical Trial Summary

Hypertension is an increasingly common problem in children, especially among those who are obese or with diabetes and chronic kidney disease. This study is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether improved blood pressure control can be achieved with the use of remote home blood pressure monitoring in children with uncontrolled blood pressure.


Clinical Trial Description

Hypertension is an increasingly common problem in children, especially among those who are obese or with diabetes and chronic kidney disease. This study is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether improved blood pressure control can be achieved with the use of remote home blood pressure monitoring in children with uncontrolled blood pressure. Study investigators will randomize 60 children who have elevated BP (defined as receipt of ≥1 anti-hypertensive agent or office SBP ≥90th percentile) to either home BP monitoring with a home SBP target of < 90th percentile or less than 120 mm Hg, which ever is lower (intervention group) versus usual care group in 2:1 ratio. This study aims to (1) compare the safety of BP lowering in intervention versus usual care patients, (2) determine the efficacy of the intervention and provide estimates for the refinement of sample size determination for an eventual full-scale trial, and (3) assess the feasibility and acceptability of the intervention, recruitment rates, and barriers to trial completion. ;
