Suggestion: If there is a way to specifically demonstrate femoral pulse location with possible animated graphics. This would be helpful with trainees who have never had to monitor this before. Thank you for another excellent video! Dorothy

That's a great idea Christen, I'll add that to the list, all of the places to feel for pulses. Thank you for the suggestion!

Great video, only thing I could suggest that would assist new learners / students would be to add audio of an actual heart beat. Often sounds very different than what you would first imagine. Loving the videos and articles.

Great video as always. The quiz asked about pulse deficits which wasn't addressed in the video (would be appropriate to include if you redo the video). Also, what is your reference for 90 mmHg systolic if you can feel a pedal? While a number, this doesn't really address the possible too low of a MAP. Thanks!
