My son wanted to know what a blood pressure cuff did. So I showed him by putting it on his arm and taking his blood pressure. His blood pressure was 121/108. He is 10 years old. SHould I be worried? Is that high for kids?

I dont really have an answer because I'm not sure. But I'm surprised they havent taken his blood pressure before! My son is 5yrs and he gets it read everytime he goes to the dr.!
