How do I check someone's pulse?
« on: April 16, 2008, 09:45:49 PM »
You should be able to feel a person's pulse beating at various points on their body. One pulse point is on the wrist, just underneath the thumb bone.

Hold the person's arm so it is straight with the underside facing upwards. Feel around at the wrist using your index and middle finger of one hand until you find the pulse. Alternatively, press the same two fingers against the one side of the neck, just underneath the jaw.

If you are counting a person's pulse, use a clock with a second hand. Carefully count how many beats you feel in a full minute. A normal resting heart rate for an adult is 60 -90 beats per minute.
