1
Normally arterial pulse is always, can be caught and venous pulse, and sometimes felt precapillary.It appears pulse as a result of fluctuations of walls of blood vessels, with heart rate, so he shows us the heart rate, which normally is 60-80 beats per minute for an adult and more often - a normal heart rate for children.Newborn heart rate by an average of 140 beats per minute by the end of the first year of life has 110-130, further indicators of heart rate gradually decreases with age to adulthood or later reaching the standard 60-80.
2
most often determined on the pulse of the radial artery.In children, measure the pulse on the temporal arteries.Palpation of the carotid arteries to determine the characteristics of the central arterial pulse.The standard
location for measuring the pulse and artery of the back of the foot.
3
Note when measuring the pulse, the pulse that the normal values ​​established for the person in a horizontal position if you are standing, the pulse is 5-15 beats per minute higher than the norm.
4
starts measuring pulse on symmetrically arranged arteries.If the pulse simultaneously in two vessels, one can explore further the pulse on only one of the two arteries.
5
When measuring the performance of the radial pulse grasp the wrist area so that your thumb is on the back of the hand, the other four fingers lie on the artery that runs along the radius, that is,the inner side of the arm.
carotid pulse check symmetrically on either side of the larynx.
6
can not in any case to check the pulse, pressing one finger artery, it can cause an error.Measure the pulse of at least two fingers (index and middle), easily holding the artery.
7
not necessary to press on the artery as measured by heart rate, excessive.From this surge may disappear altogether, since you pinching the artery, stop the flow of blood through it.
8
Count the rhythmic pulse of at least 30 seconds, for greater accuracy minute.If you felt the pulse of only half a minute, do not forget to multiply the result by two, to learn performance heart rate per minute.
9
addition to the measurement of the frequency of the doctor determines the rhythm of the pulse, filling, height and voltage pulse.A special study of pulse, using sphygmography, plethysmography and rheography.These methods allow the pulse parameters display in graphical form to the doctor later analyzed pulse curve.
10
Often today, to monitor the pulse of the heart rate monitor is used.Particularly relevant are devices for people with diseases of the cardiovascular system and for the athletes.
