How to Take Blood Pressure How to Take Blood Pressure

Okay so now we got the blood pressure cuff inflated fully. And there's no longer a pulse coming through that brachael artery. Now you want to slowly open up the dial, so that the blood pressure is, the millimeters of mercury is falling around 2 millimeters of mercury per second. And when you hear that first beat, that is your systolic pressure, and then continue deflating at 2 millimeters of mercury until you no longer hear that beat, and that is your diastolic pressure. So the systolic pressure is the pressure on top, and the diastolic.

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.

Why is My Heart Racing During Pregnancy

Why is my heart racing during pregnancy You still have not calmed down from freaking out about finding out you're pregnant. I already knew I was pregnant. Are you anxiously awaiting the answer as to whether it is a boy or a girl We already know the answer to that, we just are not telling anyone else. Your heart usually has to work a little harder during pregnancy because your body is circulating an extra liter or gallon of blood, I do not remember which. I know you lose five to ten pounds as the body sheds the extra blood and fluids it accumulates.

To support the baby. If your heart is pounding more than it usually does, this could be a sign of dehydration, as it strains to circulate less fluid than it needs. Sit down, rest and have a noncaffeinated drink. That would be a relief literally, if I thought that was a problem. If you have an irregular heart beat, chest pains or shortness of breath in addition to a fast heart beat, that could be a sign of preeclampsia. I've heard of that. It causes premature labor. It is a sudden spike in blood pressure, and you get a racing heartbeat, skyrocketing blood.

Pressure, blurred vision and heart problems before you risk a stroke, heart attack or other major problem. Now if my heart is racing, it is due to all the adrenaline. If you even think you have preeclampsia, do not try to relax to slow the heart rate but consult with a doctor. What else could it be If you were laying down and suddenly stand up, the heart rate has to spike to circulate all the fluids around. That just makes me dizzy. Unfortunately, laying on my back makes me dizzy too.

If you were earlier in the pregnancy, I'd say faintness was a symptom of low blood sugar or dehydration. Late in the pregnancy, dizziness can be because the baby is putting weight on the veins in your back. I'm not dizzy now. Dehydration can cause your heart rate to spike, as well. So the solution may be drink a lot of water. Or eating liver and steak. High heart rates can be caused by anemia. I'd rather take the vitamins. You can have a racing heart because you overdosed on prenatal vitamins.

First Aid Safety Tips How to Measure Record Vital Signs During First Aid

You know, there are many ways to determine and assess the victim of an illness, accident or injury. Hi, I'm Captain Joe Bruni. What I'm going to discuss and talk about, is how to basically assess a persons vitals signs without using any technical instruments. Like a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope or things along those lines. The first thing that we want to assess is their level of consciousness through the pupils. Ask them do they know where they are, do they know their name and to see if they are alert and oriented. We.

Can also take a light, shine it in the persons eyes to see if the pupils are equal and reactive. And if they are symmetrical and of the same size. Level of consciousness. The next thing we want to determine is pulse rate. We can gain the pulse rate or gage the pulse rate by feeling the radial pulse in the wrist or the carotid pulse up in the neck line. Count the beats for fifteen seconds. Multiply it by four for our heart rate. We would then move on to respiratory rate and count the respiratory rate watching rising chest fall.

Or stomach rise and fall for fifteen seconds. Multiplying by four. Checking skin condition by examining whether they are pink and flushed, or pale and sweaty, or cool and clammy. Which would be a poor indicator. And finally checking capillary refill or circulation by taking a pen or some type of hard object like our fingernail. Pressing down on the nail bed and watching the white spot turn back to pink. In the time it takes to say the words capillary refill that nail bed should have flushed back pink again. All a good vital sign. Basic steps.
