Vital Signs (Nursing)

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

In almost all care settings, the nurse is responsible for obtaining vital signs. These include a heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, temperature, oxygen saturation, and level of pain. Obtaining accurate and timely vital signs is crucial since they form the basis of many clinical decisions.

In this course, youโ€™ll learn how to obtain each of the above-mentioned vital signs correctly, what important considerations to keep in mind, how to obtain highly accurate values, and the multiple ways in which certain vital signs can be measured (e.g., oral vs. rectal temperature).

I needed to refresh knowledge of vital signs before placement at my nursing school and this was perfect, it also has the benefit of not only saying whats normal and not but a little of the physiology of why! will revisit when I need to refresh over the years.
