The determination of vital signs is a fundamental aspect of patient care. Electronic health records have a structured format for their registration. It is known that the frequency with which this data is recollected is not representative of reality. To complement the missing data we have created a tool that extract the information regarding blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, height, weight and pain level recorded in free text in the clinical notes of outpatients.
