Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual 12-2 Vital Signs assessments of pulse, respiration, blood pressure, and temperature; body functions essential to life
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual 12-3 Pulse a vital sign; a quantitative measurement of the heartbeat using the fingers to palpate an artery or a stethoscope to listen to the heartbeat
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual 12-4 Pulse Rates for Adults Normal 60 to 100 beats per minute (70 to 80 bpm on average) Tachycardia more than 100 bpm Bradycardia less than 60 bpm

Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual 12-8 Respiration breathing; the process of bringing oxygen into the body and expelling carbon dioxide from the body
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual 12-9 Normal Rates of Respiration 15 years and Older 15 to 20 breaths per minute A Well-Trained Athlete 6 to 8 breaths per minute
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual Normal Vs. Obstructed Respiration Under normal circumstances breathing (respiration) is quiet and effortless. Noisy respirations indicate an obstruction in the air passages.
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual Blood Pressure the pressure exerted by the circulating blood against the walls of the arteries
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual Systolic & Diastolic Pressures The systolic pressure is the top number in a blood pressure reading. It reflects the blood pressure when the heart contracts. The diastolic pressure reflects the blood pressure when the heart is at rest and is recorded as the bottom number of a blood pressure measurement.
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual Positive Test Results for Blood Pressure Readings outside of these ranges indicate a potential problem: normal systolic range 100 mm Hg to 140 mm Hg normal diastolic range 65 mm Hg to 90 mm Hg
Copyright © 2002 Career Publishing, Inc. Visual At Valley Community College the beginning of soccer season signals the need for every player to have a physical exam. It typically takes the entire athletic training staff all morning to perform the necessary physicals and this year promised to be no different. On the date set for the physicals Ms. Morgan, the head athletic trainer, set up a different station for each vital sign. She then assigned a student trainer to each station. Steve was assigned to take blood pressures. He was doing a good job of taking blood pressures. Ms. Morgan was getting the same pressures as he was nine out of ten times. One of Steve’s friends, Rudy, was in line to have his blood pressure taken. To Steve’s surprise, Rudy’s blood pressure was 170 over 92. Steve did not know how to tell a friend that his blood pressure would jeopardize his chance to play soccer. So, Ms. Morgan and Steve sat down with Rudy to discuss his unusually high blood pressure. Rudy assured them that he had a condition called “White Coat Syndrome” in which he gets nervous when someone takes his blood pressure. He promised to have his family physician check him out and forward the results to the school’s athletic department. Why is it important for an athletic trainer to check the student athletic trainer's work periodically? How elevated is Rudy’s blood pressure when compared to the normal range? Is it acceptable to have a family physician perform the physical and forward the results instead of having it performed by the athletic training staff?
