What are the pulse points?
The pulse can be felt in several locations on the body.
- The radial pulse point is on the thumb side of the inner surface of the wrist.
- The brachial artery pulse point is on the inner medial surface of the elbow, at the antecubital space (crease of elbow).
- The carotid pulse felt in the carotid artery of the neck when pressure is applied.
- The femoral point, located midway in the groin.
- The Dorsalis Pedis on the instep of the foot and the Popliteal at the back of the knee.

The point of the radial pulse is located on the patient's 'thumb' side of their wrist. You locate the patient's radial artery (pulse pont) in the patient's wrist using your mi…ddle two or three fingers. You count the number of pulses that occur in eiher 30 seconds or 1 minute. NEVER use your thumb to take a pulse. You would then be feeling your OWN pulse.
The carotid pulse. Its in the neck on either side of the throat.
The common carotid artery - because it's closest to the heart.
It is usually easiest to find the brachial pulse under the bicep, in the arm. The carotid pulse can be a little tricky, but if you can see it, you can get the rate visually.

Pulse points are places on your body where your arteries are so close to the surface that you can feel your pulse. The easiest to find pulse points are the brachial (inside of… the elbow), radial (wrist), and carotid (neck).

The pulse point that is located at the wrist is called the radialpulse. All together there are five pulse points in the human body.
It is the radial pulse located just up from the thumb on the inner aspect of the wrist.
Dorsalis Pedis Artery because it is the farthest from the heart out of the common pulse points.
They are all near an artery.
That's the carotid pulse.
Dosalis Pedis, Posterior Tibial, Popliteal, Femoral, Carotid, brachial and radial arteries.
