How do you check a pulse?
If you're checking your own pulse, you can check either wrist, where you might see the throbbing of the pulse, or either side of your neck, using the minute hand of your watch, for a minute. IF you are checking someone else's pulse, the same principles apply as use above. Just be careful not to use your thumb to check wrist pulses or you might actually be counting your own.

By applying two of your fingers to your neck or wrist (where the major veins are) and pressing lightly. You should then be able to tell how many times you feel a slight "tap' …per. min.
You can check your pulse by putting two fingers on your wrist, or putting two fingers on the side of your neck. Either place works for checking your pulse. but i would try the… neck first.

well i am at feversham college and i have been told by mrs snowden that the pulse needs to be found if there is a service user that has collapsed or if there is care worker th…inking that the service user is not breathing.
You can check the pulse in the carotid (neck) or brachial (upper arm) arteries for CPR pulse checks. Other possible locations for checking a pulse are Radial (wrist), Poplitea…l artery (knee) posterior tibial or dorsalis pedis (foot).
When people go into cardiac arrest, their body usually cuts off most circulation to their extremities to keep the core of their body alive. So, a patient could have a very wea…k or absent radial pulse but they may still have a carotid pulse. it is also used to compare the radial pulse to the carotid pulse. You should check for a carotid pulse every few minutes, at the same time check for breathing, coughing, and moving. Don't check it more often than that as stopping chest compressions can waste precious time. Continue CPR if there is no breathing or pulse, ect.
Their wrists and or their neck
Not for an adult; but it is still required for children and infants.
Elephants have very thick skin, so feeling the pulse through the skin isn't an option. However, a simple ultrasound can detect the blood flowing in an artery and the heart rat…e (pulse) can be checked that way.
