Peripheral arterial disease review
We are using this secure online system to help assess your peripheral arterial disease (PAD), complete a medication review if required, and gather some relevant lifestyle information. Your answers will always be seen by the practice team, and you can indicate at the end if you feel further discussion is needed. This will allow the clinical team to monitor the impact of your condition and tailor treatment to your symptoms.
YOU NEED: Your recent weight and height.
OPTIONAL: You can enter blood pressure readings. It works best to gather a set of readings before continuing. Measure your blood pressure in the morning and in the evening, while sitting down. Each time take two readings, 1 minute apart. Continue measurements twice daily for at least 4 days and ideally for 7.
You can also enter your resting heart rate (pulse rate).
SAFETY: Some features of arterial disease warrant urgent attention (see below) and if present should be reported urgently to the practice.
Your answers will be attached to your medical record but may not be seen immediately. This system should never be used if you are in need of urgent medical attention. In this event, please contact the appropriate services (999 or 111) or the practice as normal.
