Batton B. Neonatal Blood Pressure Standards: What Is "Normal"?. Clin Perinatol. 2020;47(3):469-485. doi:10.1016/j.clp.2020.05.008

Blood pressure (BP) is routinely measured in newborn infants. Published BP nomograms demonstrate a rise in BP following delivery in healthy infants at all gestational ages (GA) and evidence that BP values are higher with increasing birth weight and GA. However, the complex physiology that occurs in newborn infants and range of BP values observed at all GA make it difficult to identify “normal” BP for a specific infant at a specific time under specific conditions. As such, complete hemodynamic assessment should include the physical examination, perinatal history, other vital signs, and laboratory values in addition to BP values.
