Where should the nurse aide’s fingertips be placed on the client’s when taking a client’s radial pulse?

A Wrist

A radial pulse is found at the client’s wrist. To locate it, place your index and middle fingers on the hollow area below the thumb. Light pressure are applied to feel the pulse. Count each beat for 30 seconds and multiply by 2 to get the pulse rate. If the client has an irregular heartbeat, count for 60 seconds. Record the pulse rate in the client’s chart.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
