Vital Signs Examination
First place the thermometer in the armpit. It takes a long time so this step needs to be done first. Put it in the armpit that is further away from you so you can check pulse and blood pressure on the arm that is nearer to you.
30 seconds on the radial artery (the thumb-side of the wrist) using two or three of your fingers: forefinger, middle-finger, and ring finger.
30 seconds, while pretending to check pulse. Look at a woman's chest and a man's abdomen to count.
Blood pressure is measured using a sphygmomanometer and a stethoscope. Normal range of blood pressure 139/89 (so, 140/90 and up is considered high blood pressure) and 91/61 (so, 90/60 and below is considered low blood pressure).
