Arterial blood pressure is the lateral pressure or force exerted by blood on the vessel wall. It indirectly measures perfusion, and blood flow equals the change in pressure divided by resistance. 63 MAP = Diastolic pressure × 2 + Systolic pressure 3 Indications and Contraindications Patients with minor ambulatory complaints unrelated to the cardiovascular system may not necessarily need their blood pressure measured in the ED, but those with hemodynamic instability need frequent monitoring of blood pressure.

30 CHAPTER 1 Vital Signs Measurement 3 RESPIRATION Interpretation Breathing is initiated and primarily controlled in the medullary respiratory center of the brainstem. 31 Respiratory frequency reveals only a glimpse of the entire clinical picture. The pattern, effort, and volume of respiration may be more indicative of altered respiratory physiology. An abnormality in respiration may be a primary complaint or a manifestation of other systemic diseases. Increased RRs may be seen in patients with a variety of pulmonary or cardiac diseases, but acidosis, anemia, temperature, stress, and drugs (such as stimulants and salicylates) can significantly alter the RR in the absence of cardiopulmonary dysfunction.

Once properly inflated, palpate directly over the artery and deflate the cuff at a rate of 2 to 3 mm Hg/sec. Report the initial appearance of arterial pulsations as the palpable blood pressure. This practice, known as the Riva-Rocci palpatory technique, has shown mixed results in yielding accurate estimations of blood pressure. 85 The same technique is used with the Doppler device, but the palpated pulse is replaced with the Doppler auditory signal. Measurement of arterial pressure by palpation and Doppler yields only estimates of systolic blood pressure.
