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, you’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).
