"Hypertension" is defined as SBP and/or DBP that is [greater than or equal to] 95th percentile
for sex, age and height percentile.

Observed Maximum Workspace of the Male and Female Samples No.
Together, the results for the 95th and 99th percentiles suggest that the normality assumption made by all of the approaches, except the historical simulations, is more reasonable for the 95th percentile
than for the 99th percentile.
Five views of the data are possible: the range of TATs (from the minimum to the 95th percentile
time), average times, mode TATs, percentages of goal, and average lateness.
* Hypertension was defined as average SBP or DBP greater than or equal to 95th percentile
for gender, age and height on at least three separate occasions.
The odds of having urinary DCP concentrations above the 95th percentile
in NHANES 2003-2004 and 2005-2006 were significantly associated with type of housing (single vs.
Children with systolic BP above the 95th percentile
had a more than 4-fold increase in coronary artery disease as adults compared with children below the 95th percentile
(SOR: B, retrospective study).
Study participants were women who underwent a clinical screening at 36-38 weeks' gestation indicating an estimated fetal weight above the 90th percentile, and who then underwent sonography indicating an estimated fetal weight above the 95th percentile
. Those randomized to induction were induced within 3 days.
(To calculate your own child's BMI, you can use the following link: http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/) A BMI greater than the 85th percentile compared to other American children of the same age is defined as overweight, and obesity is defined as a BMI greater than the 95th percentile
. Severe obesity is defined as a BMI greater than the 99th percentile.
Obesity, defined as a body mass index at the 95th percentile
or higher for age and gender, rose from 11% in 1999 to 12% in 2009, a significant increase.
The multiethnic group of 86 females and 70 males all had body mass indexes (BMIs) greater than the 95th percentile
, but did not have diabetes, abnormal thyroid function, or liver disease due to hepatitis or Wilson's disease.
