Primary prevention of cardio vascular diseases in children

Primary prevention of cardio vascular diseases in children

Cor et Vasa 23(1): 21-27

Atherosclerosis begins in childhood or adolescence. Preventive measures must commence in these periods. In the pediatric consultative care, special attention should be paid to hypertension, hyperlipidemia and obesity. Standard examination procedures at a pediatric consulting station and at preventive examinations in the nursery, primary and secondary schools should include blood pressure measurement, commencing in children aged 4 yr. Fat metabolism should be examined mainly in children with familial history of cardiovascular diseases. Education concerning a healthy life regimen with rational nutrition and sufficient physical activity should be stressed.
