♥ You can palpate to feel for the abdominal aorta. Use a flat palm or outstretched fingers. It will usually require you to depress the abdomen and can be difficult if the patient is obese or is very muscular.
♥ There are 2 more common pulse points he didn’t mention. The Popliteal, found behind the knee cap and the Femoral found in the groin area.
♥ Can you demonstrate how to find the pulses of the body? Send us your video to replace this one. We’d much rather have resources created by nursing students and/or nursing professors.
