This free printable blood pressure log is to be used by individuals to track their blood pressure readings for medical or personal monitoring.

High blood pressure is a common problem. Over time it can damage organs in your body, often contributing to strokes and heart disease.
You can measure your blood pressure using a simple tool with a cuff and air pump. Most devices have digital readouts to help make the process quick and easy. This device provides a reading of your systolic and diastolic pressure which measures your arteries filled with blood and then also at rest. A reading of 120/80 has often been used as a baseline measurement for a healthy human being. Much higher and you need to speak with a physician.
According to the American Heart Association, monitoring your blood pressure at home is helpful if it goes along with the periodic visits to your doctor.
This type of monitoring is ideal for individuals with a family history of high blood pressure. Even if you don’t have current issues, periodic monitoring can help you diagnose early. It’s strongly encouraged to monitor if you have been formally diagnosed with hypertension. If you are able to provide your physician with accurate results of the readings, then they will be able to determine the proper treatment. It will also make it easier to determine if medications are working or if they need to be adjusted.
This log can be helpful in organizing your results for your own records as well as providing documentation for your health care provider.
