How to Use This Log
Section I: Blood Pressure Tips and Facts
Review these tips and facts to help you better understand what blood pressure is, how to maintain it, taking readings, and how hypertension is diagnosed.
Section II: Blood Pressure Log
Each page in this section allows you to chart your blood pressure and heart rate (pulse) for one week. If you take your blood pressure twice a day, fill in both the white and dark colored boxes. If you take your blood pressure once a day, fill in only the white boxes.
The page opposite each chart enables you to write daily notes as needed. Items you may want to take note of are: food eaten, changes in medication dosage, physical activity, lightheadedness, headache, or any other symptoms. These notes will help you and your medical provider better manage your treatment if needed. Speak to him or her about which notes are most important to record for your specific circumstances.
Section III: Medical Appointment Log
These pages are designed to make the most out of
appointments with your medical provider. Prior to
your appointment1 use these pages to write the
questions you would like to ask your provider and
items you want to discuss. During the appointment.
you may use the log as a helpful reference. There is
also space to write responses and other information
you obtain during your visit, such as changes In
medication or new blood pressure goals.
Section IV: Medication Log
This chart allows you to list all your medications in
one location. There is a column to record the name,
dosage amount, and date you first began taking
each medication. Your doctor may advise you to
stop taking a medication in some cases, and there is
a column to record that date as well. Be sure to
record all your medications because even if a
medication is not related directly to blood pressure
treatment, your blood pressure may still be affected.
