Description

This module aims to help healthcare professionals to check the arterial pulse. It focuses on the radial pulse, and also briefly considers the brachial and carotid pulses. The arterial pulse provides information about the patient’s condition and is therefore a vital sign. Checking the pulse is an essential clinical skill for healthcare professionals.

Palpating the pulse tells us the patient’s heart rate.
It also provides information on the regularity, volume and character of the pulse.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Describe the arterial pulse.
Identify the requirements and measures to be taken before and after checking the arterial pulse.
Name the common sites for palpating the pulse.
Describe methods to obtain a pulse rate.
Identify the information obtained in the assessment of the pulse.
