Pulso radial

Las arterias llevan la sangre oxigenada desde el corazón hacia los tejidos del organismo y las venas transportan la sangre desprovista de oxígeno desde los mismos tejidos de regreso al corazón. Las arterias son los vasos sanguíneos que tienen "pulso", un empuje rítmico de la sangre en el corazón seguido por un nuevo llenado de la cámara cardíaca. Para determinar la frecuencia cardíaca, se sienten los golpes del pulso en un punto como el interior de la muñeca, por 10 segundos, y se multiplica esa cantidad por 6. Este es el total por minuto.
