Enter patient vitals

The Patient Vitals panel records patient measurements like blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, weight, and more.

You can display the information as a graph over time or simply as the most recent value.

Each data type includes a history of the past measurements and displays the time since each item was last updated.

  1. Go to the Patient Vitals panel
  2. Select the value field to the left of the measurement you want to update
