I am not in my first semester, but I'm still having trouble counting respirations while having distractions. I still have to act like I'm counting the pulse "for a full minute" and count respirations for the second half of that time. Anyone have any tips on how to do this another way? Whenever I try to do it while I'm using the Vitals machine, I find I don't have a full 30 seconds to observe for respirations and so I can never make it work out. Any other time I try it, I find myself getting distracted. I have a hard time looking natural while counting respirations/doing something else for a full 30 seconds. Thanks.
