MyDiary Blood Pressure Log

Recording Blood Pressure

Adding a new entry is simple and only requires a few clicks. Start by clicking on the 'New Entry' tile in the main menu.

Entry Editor

The top half of the app displays the current date and time, with the blood pressure data located below. Click on any of the values to change them.

You can change Systolic, Diastolic, or Pulse by clicking on their fields. Once the field is selected, use the keyboard to enter a value. Entering the first digit will clear the old value so there is no need to clear it with the backspace. You can leave any of the values empty if you do not wish to use them.

Date and Time

To edit the date or the time, simply click on the value that you want to change.

Other Measurements

See Configure fields visible in the Entry Editor


Once all displayed values are correct, click on the save button located in the top right corner of the screen. If you accidentally try to close the editor without saving, you will be asked if the changes should be saved or ignored.

Add Extended Information

The bottom part of the entry editor allows you to store some additional information within each blood pressure record.

As you can see, the first two options are location and posture. Location defines where the reading was taken (e.g. left arm or right leg), while posture specifies the posture taken during the measurement (e.g. sitting or standing).

Location Picker

Entry Editor

To change either of the values, just click on it, and select a new value from the displayed list. You can also specify a default value that will be given to every new entry. To do so, press and hold, the preferred value until the dialog box disappears.

Selecting Tags

The last two fields of the entry editor, Comment and Tags, allow you to enter custom information.

While comments can accept any text, tags have to be predefined. To define custom tags, click on the 'Edit' button in the tags selection window.

Tags Editor

Enter one tag per line and you'll be able to select it after clicking 'OK'. Changing existing tags won't affect previous entries.
