Main BP Treatments
The BP Treatments Screen is a listing of all entered
treatments, sorted by Start Date, in decreasing order to
make the most recent treatments easily viewable. Tx 1
is always assigned to the earliest Tx Start
Date. By design, ascending Tx Numbers (#) are assigned
to specific Tx Start Dates. This feature allows BP
results, obtained prior to purchasing bp Trax, to be
entered and properly managed, compared and analyzed.
Each Tx is viewed in a Tx Tag containing the following
information: Tx Name, Tx #, Dosage and Start & End
Dates. The most recent Tx End Date is indicated by
“----------“, since it has no yet ended.
