Children caregivers must know the pediatric high blood pressure existence, the consequences associated
with it, the risk factors and it’s prevention. In [12, 13] can be found a statistical data analysis using a
simpler questionnaire introduced in [4] under the aim of a preliminary study about pediatric arterial
hypertension caregivers acquaintance. The present article presents a preliminary analysis of a questionnaire
applied to children caregivers and filled online. The questionnaire structure consists in 15 questions which
were built under the aim of easy and quick answer. We have developed multivariate techniques to get
models with enough explication of the data.
