We at Medgadget love us some web apps. We’re not too thrilled about home blood pressure management, though, as it tends to drive a lot of people unnecessarily to our emergency department for what turns out to be an expensive educational encounter.
A new alternative is the web app at http://bp-chart.com/. On this site, you can log your BP measurements to your heart’s content, store them, plot them, export them to Excel, or package readings for your doctor. You can even share blood pressure readings on Facebook and Twitter.
The site’s programmer, Mateusz Mucha, has made his data public (you can keep yours private). He also points to new data that online physician monitoring of BP leads to greater reductions over time.
So give it a try! It’s free.
