Hi there, waaazup?? :D:D:D


Could you help me? I am working on the p.e. of the extremities.
In FA is written to check for periph.pulses and blood pressure of both arms.

How do you perform the inferior arms exam? Do you check the femoral pulse? Is it correct to check only popliteal, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries?


Thank you Happy-2

Yes the femoral pulse palpation is now allowed, popliteal DP and PT pulse is also checked

i would also check the gait and look for intermittent claudication
