Measuring Vital Signs Part 1: Temperature, Pulse, and Respiration

OVERVIEW:

Vital signs are indicators of basic bodily functions that are periodically measured by healthcare personal to monitor a patients health.  Measuring vital signs is a fundamental clinical skill that every nurse need to master to provide competent patient care.

Updated with a fresh look and feel, this program is the first in a new two-part series that demonstrates and describes how to accurately measure temperature, pulse and respirations in a patient. Temperature measurement is demonstrated using electronic, aural (tympanic), and temporal thermometers. Techniques and sites used for measuring the pulse are shown, and assessment of the rate, depth, rhythm and quality of respiration is demonstrated.

OBJECTIVES:

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Identify the indications for measuring temperature
  • Demonstrate techniques for measuring oral, axillary, and rectal temperature
  • Define pulse
  • Locate five sites on the body to palpate the pulse
  • Demonstrate assessment of both radial and apical pulse
