How to Take Blood Pressure Blood Pressure Cuff Placement

Okay so now we want to talk about the placement of the blood pressure cuff, and the placement of the stethoscope. So in general, you want to be a couple of inches, or a couple of centimeters actually, above the elbow crease. You don't want any clothes constricting around the blood pressure cuff. Go ahead and close that off, so now we have that. And the next part is placement of the stethoscope. One important aspect is to make sure that the ear pieces you can see are angled, and you want to make sure those angles are pointing forward when.

KT Tape Bicep

I'm Chris Harper, and with me is Melissa and we're here to show you the application for bicep pain Pain of the bicep may be in front of shoulder, or anywhere along the bicep and some causes may include tears or strains to the muscle itself nerve, ligament, or tendon damage. KT Tape helps treat this condition by relieving pressure, supporting the muscle, and may increase circulation. For this application, Melissa, let's go ahead and have you sit on the end of the table. We're going to tear one piece of tape, and we're going to position.

The bicep on stretch, so we're going to bring the arm out to the side and bring that arm back just a little bit. For this first piece I'm going to twist and tear the paper backing creating an anchor point down on the logo end of the tape I'm going to apply this with absolutely no stretch just above the elbow, so I'm actually avoiding the skin in front of the elbow as this tends to be very sensitive. I'm going to peel that paper backing off, I'm going to place that on twenty five percent.

Stretch, so if this is one hundred percent, I'll back that off fiftypercent, and fiftypercent again and I'm going to lay that tape down and with that last bit of tape, I'm going to take that paper off and put that piece down with absolutely zero stretch. Give that a good friction rub before you move out of position that creates some heat and better adhesion of the tape Okay, go ahead and bring that arm back down and rest right there. Some tips before applying, clean the skin very well to remove any.

Leg Lowering

Welcome back to Foundation Physical Therapy's YouTube channel today we're going to go through our alternating straight leg raise progression so we're going to go through a few different corrective strategies to improve the flexibility of the hamstrings to some extent but it also improves the mobility of the hips to a large extent and works on core stabilization. So you can't think of this as solely a hamstring stretch though it does stretch the hamstrings. So the first step to doing this if you know you have some limitations in your hamstrings or you just feel tight in the posterior chain when you're moving.

Is to stand in a doorway. So for the sake of this tutorial we didn't get in a doorway but you want to think of this pole here as one part of your doorjamb and the rest would be here and here. You want to lay partially in the doorway and then get your foot up on the doorway just like that right. You want to be in this position here so that you're not getting a huge stretch in the back of the leg. Then what you're going to do is.

Lay the opposite leg down nice and flat. Now if you find that you're like this then you need to back up and then eventually work yourself closer and closer to the doorway. So once I'm in this position I lay this leg flat and then all I'm going to do is put my arms out the side at a 45 degree angle then lift the leg up. Again pay attention to the toes, I'm not pointing them and I'm not letting this knee bend nor this knee bend. Keep them.

Both straight, come down and then come up. I don't really want to dig this leg into the doorjamb to help lift myself up I should be putting as little pressure through this leg as I can, it's just there for support. I would repeat this somewhere between 10 to 20 times or whatever feels comfortable and do it on both sides of the doorjamb so I get both legs. So this is a good way just to do some passive stretching to some extent but it also gets your movement pattern going on one leg as a trail leg and the other as a.

Lat Stretch

Welcome to Foundations YouTube Channel. We will be going over lat stretching. The lats, or the latissimus dorsi, is a muscle that goes from the upper arm and it ties into the lower back. When the muscle is too tight it can pull the arm into this position which can cause shoulder problems. If the muscle is too tight and you're doing overhead activities then it can cause you to arch your back and cause increased pressure on the lumbar spine. Stretching the latissimus dorsi is easy. I'm going to show you a stretch that you can hold.

For a couple minutes then I'll show you an active way to do it that's a little more challenging. So all you need is a chair and what you'll do at home is kneel in front of the chair and place your elbows shoulder width apart. You're going to sit into this position making sure that the back is flat and not arched. You may need somebody to kind of cue you to make sure you're doing it right. Then what you do is you just hang in this position, keeping.

KT Tape AC Joint Sprain

This application is for acromioclavicular joint or AC joint separation, where the collar bone separates from the shoulder blade. This can cause inflamation at that joint, and this is how we tape for it. In this application the point of pain is often at the tip of the shoulder where the collar bone meets the shoulder blade now I'll put a red dot just indicate where that typically is. and also positioning is important, we're going to come up in a good posture as well as approximating the joint, which means.

To push the shoulder into the body, so you're actually closing that joint down. For our first strip of tape, we're going to tear an Istrip off the roll tearing the paper in the middle we're going to place that tape on full stretch the middle section of tape and we're going to place that full stretch section over that point of pain and what I'm doing here is actually bringing this piece back a little bit because I'd like to leave this front piece a little short just so I don't end up in the the armpit area, and as I took that paper off.

I'm leaving no tension on the tape as I will back here, I'm just removing the paper and then laying the tape down with no stretch for my next piece I'm tearing off another Istrip, again tearing the paper in the middle and now placing the tape on full stretch in the middle section of the tape this is the point of pain and I'm placing that piece down and what I'm doing here again is going down the arm a bit and I'm leaving this end of tape short with no tension, this area of skin just behind the collar bone by the neck tends to be.

Very sensitive and on the arm, again I'm taking that paper off, and just laying that piece of tape down with no stretch. For my third piece I'm tearing off another Istrip. In this demonstration I'm using multiple colors to show the different layers of tape again full stretch on the middle section of tape and again, where that tape is being stretched I'm placing over that point of pain. and from here I'm just removing the paper and laying that tape down with no stretch on the ends And for my last piece, I'll use another Istrip.

Sphygmomanometer BP Apparatus, Mercurial. Item Code SP001

NET Brand Sphygmomanometer BP Appratus, Mercurial. Checking Blood Pressure is one of the doctor's first steps prior to any investigation. Sphygmomanometer is a device, which is used to measure blood pressure, It consists of an inflatable cuff, a measuring unit the mercury manometer and a mechanism for inflation bulb with valve. Manual sphygmomanometer is used in conjunction with a stethoscope. To take the blood pressure accurately, make the person sit down on a table, where it is easy to rest the arm in a position where the elbow is parallel to the heart. Wrap the cuff around the upper.

Middle arm. Locate the pulse and place the diaphragm of the stethoscope. Inflate the rubber bulb by compressing and releasing the bulb rapidly until you hear no sounds coming through the stethoscope. Inflate the cuff to 180mmhg. Deflate the cuff, blood will begin to flow through the artery again. Carefully listen for the first sounds and watch the reading on the gauge. This is person's systolic pressure. Gradually the sounds will become lighter and then fade away completely. That point is the person's Diastolic pressure. Now we have a reading of the person's blood pressure.

First Rib Mobilization for Neck Shoulder Pain Relief Ask Doctor Jo

Hey everybody, it's Doctor Jo. Today I'm gonna show you how to mobilize your first rib. It can cause a lot of problems like numbness in your arms or even headaches. So this is a good way to try and get some of that calmed down for you. THere's some simples exercises, let's get going. The first thing you can do is grab a belt or something tight, maybe even a long beach towel. But you want it to be something firm, not like those bands that give. Put the belt around the top of your neck and shoulder on the side that hurts.

Hold it here with the other side and if you can, if your arm's not hurting badly enough, grab behind you, so your kind of at and angle. Almost like a seat belt like when you're putting the seatbelt on. You want to take your neck and side bend towards that side and kind of turn down cause that makes those muscles those scalene muscles relax so it's holding on to that first rib there. You want to push down towards that opposite side. And give a nice big pull, hold it there, and take a deep breath. As you let the breath out, pull even harder.

And hold it there about as long as you can, 30 seconds, and then relax. If that gets pretty easy, and your not feeling quite as much of a stretch, you can actually then take a ball, racquetball, tennis ball, something kind of firm, and put it in that same spot. Right where that first rib rolls around the neck to the shoulder. Put it there, press down, side ben your head again. Nice deep breath, and I'm pushing down as I'm breathing out. Holding, holding, holding, and then relax. You can do this as many times as you want.

Basic First Aid Emergency Medical Treatment Basic First Aid Controlling Bleeding

Hi, I'm Amy, and today we are going to be talking about controlling the bleeding. Nita here, we are going to suppose that she has a wound to her arm. The first thing we are going to do if somebody is bleeding, it is always good because you never know whether or not if somebody's body fluid are infected, so you want to treat all blood and body fluids as if they are infected even if you know the victim. So if you have gloves it is great. Put on a pair of gloves. If you don't have gloves, you can ask the victim to go ahead.

And press their hand against the wound. You can use other materials such as Tshirts or a towel that is handy. Kitchen towels are probably the most common thing that people grab at their house. If you happen to have a first aid kit, which is highly recommended for people to have in their homes, you can go ahead and press the gauze pad against the wound, applying direct pressure. Most bleeding will stop with direct pressure alone. In order to secure the gauze, it is always nice to have a roll of bandage. Place the roll of.

Bandage against the wound and gently roll it around until you secure the gauze. It is always good to check for feeling, warmth and color of the fingers before and after you dress the wound. You want to make sure that you are not wrapping the gauze pad too tightly because if you are, you actually turn the gauze to a tourniquet, which you don't want to do, and you never want to apply a tourniquet to any bleeding no matter how severe it is unless the decision has been made to sacrifice a limb on this side of the injury. Once you.

Have secured that, it is always nice to keep your arm elevated. It helps to control the flow of blood. Try and keep that direct pressure on the wound. If that is not working and it is still bleeding through, you can also, especially with a wound in the arm, there is an artery inside the arm there ,and you can find that artery by feeling for the pulse with your finger tips and press their artery against the bone. The victim can very often tell you whether or not if you've located it because they should start to feel their fingers tingle.

And lose a bit of sensation and Nita is nodding her head, yes, my fingers are tingling, and then you want to gradually release that periodically because again you don't want to completely stop the flow of blood to the arm. You can also apply another gauze pad. If you can, hold that arm for me Feel comfortable doing that Then you can always apply more and more direct pressure. If it is a gaping wound, that is the edges of the wound do not close, if it is bleeding severely or if it appears that it is going to need.
