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.
