Hello everyone!

I am in my last year of nursing school and about to start my critical care rotation. In the past, I have had a lot of trouble locating the popliteal pulse. I never know how people can just hold the leg and feel it right away. I'm worried about this and want to fix it asap! So any advice that anyone can give me to make this easier would really help! :D

Well, are you able to find it on yourself? What about on others who are not patients?

I think this one is hard to find too. It helps to have the knee bent a bit.

Why are you using this? It seems like it would be adequate to find dorsalis pedis! Unless I guess you can't find that one?
