What is the points of radial pulse?
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 middle 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.
