Similarly, other haemodynamic parameters including AIxao-75, and aortic and brachial pulse
pressures slightly changed in this period, but did not reach statistical significance (p>0.
To apply the algorithm, let's use the following example: a toddler has blood on his face and arms but no visible bleeding, he is crying, after calming him momentarily his respiratory rate is 40, he has a palpable brachial pulse
and he resumes crying loudly while you assess perfusion.
Her right hand was cool to the touch and her fingers were dusky; the radial pulses and brachial pulse
could not be palpated and could be detected only with Doppler ultrasound.
Feel for a pulse for up to 10 seconds (check for the presence of a carotid pulse in an adult or child; check for a brachial pulse
in an infant) (Fig.
Also feel the pulses--the brachial pulse
is easier to measure than the femoral pulse, but feel the pulses everywhere, Dr.
