2 to 20: The Children's Cardiovascular Health Study

Help us develop better ways to detect cardiovascular disease early

The University of Sydney is in the process of developing a simple method to assess central blood pressure in children.

Central blood pressure measured in the main blood vessel of the heart more closely predicts risks of developing heart disease than current methods measured in the arm. At current, there is no efficient way to measure this in children.

Participation will involve attending the Clinical Research Facility at the University of Sydney for approximately two hours over one day for cardiovascular assessments.

Participants will be reimbursed for travel expenses and time.

This study has received ethics approval from the RPAH Ethics Review Committee (Protocol No. X16-0065 & HREC/16/RPAH/80).
