Cardiomyopathy Ischemic Self Monitoring

Self-monitoring for ischemic cardiomyopathy includes:

  • Monitor your blood pressure.
  • Monitor your pulse:
    • Take your pulse daily while you are at rest:
    • Keep a log of your results.
    • Report to your doctor any pulse rates that exceed 20 beats per minute over your normal resting pulse.
  • Monitor your weight:
    • Keep a log of your results.
