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

OVERVIEW:

Updated in 2011, this first of two programs on measuring vital signs demonstrates and describes the techniques used to accurately measure temperature, pulse and respiration in a patient. Measurement of temperature is demonstrated using a variety of thermometers emphasizing the use of 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
  • Demonstrate assessment of respiration
