Determining Blood Pressure Readings
How to Determine Blood Pressure Readings During Auscultation
Have you ever asked yourself:
- How do I read a blood pressure dial?
- What sounds do I need to pay attention to as I watch the dial?
- What numbers should I document for the blood pressure measurement?
If you seek answers to these questions, then this course is for you.
Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE subject of blood pressure. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—observing the dial and listening to Korotkoff sounds to determine blood pressure readings.
