Any ideas about when and how to be able to add in "objective" sOap notes things 

        blood pressure


Also, I notice that the measurement that is abbreviated as "RR" could be any of

        "respiratory rate"
        "blood pressure measured with a specific sphygmomanometer"
        "relative risk"

… any idea how blood pressure came to be abbreviated "RR"? In idiosyncratic 
North America, we measure blood pressure in mmHg (no doubt using different 
devices than in Europe) and we abbreviate it

        --> can this be added to "base" GNUmed?

and for respiratory rate we use

        --> how to handle in GNUmed?
        --> use instead BF for "breath frequency"?

BTW here are some links to other abbreviations
