Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
The stress of just being in an exam room during your scheduled appointment can often lead to elevated blood pressure readings. This is why many healthcare professionals recommend keeping a log at home of your blood pressure readings over a longer period of time. American Medical ID, a partner of The Mended Hearts Inc. and the American Diabetes Association, now provides more than a dozen different medical logs at no cost through downloadable forms.
Patients and their healthcare providers now have easy access to interactive medical logs, trackers and diaries. These can serve as very useful tools in the effort to manage chronic medical conditions, in partnership with a physician, nurse, pharmacist or other medical care providers. It has been demonstrated that keeping track of vital medical information with a medical log or checklist is a highly effective way to assist in meeting the targets set out by medical care providers.
Medical logs being offered include: Insulin Injections, Seizure Record, Blood Pressure Readings, Blood Sugar Levels, Pain Medication Taken, Headache Diary, Medication Refills, Allergy Listing, Emergency Information Form, Medical History Form, Immunization Log, Calorie Counter Log, Babysitter Information Sheet, and Exercise/Activity Log.
“If you have diabetes, you will likely be instructed at some point to get a diabetes ID and to monitor your blood sugar or record insulin injections. Your diabetes educator or physician has probably already told you to do this because managing diabetes is much easier when accurately tracking this information. Why not make it easier for people to do this?” said Rick Russell, founder of American Medical ID, “There are apps out there, but sometimes it’s easier to just have something you can pin to the fridge. If it’s right there in front of you, you’ll remember to do it.”
Since 1994, Houston-based, employee owned and operated, American Medical ID has created high quality, customized medical identification jewelry to meet one’s everyday lifestyle. Candidates for a medical ID include anyone living with chronic or rare medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, heart conditions, stroke risk or memory impairment; persons with allergies such as food, drug or insect; and those taking multiple medications or blood thinners.
