As a medical professional, you may be asked to obtain vital signs. Vital signs are always obtained during a routine physical examination and are also used for assessing symptoms, or as part of a follow-up assessment for patients undergoing treatment. This module provides a thorough introduction to the process of obtaining adult vital signs, covering body temperatures, pulse rates, respiratory rates, and blood pressures. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three different scenarios that test your ability to prepare for and assess adult vital signs; each covers temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure for a variety of clinical presentations. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident. If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/clinical/medical-assisting/vital-signs/obtain-vital-signs-adult

You'll learn

  • the normal values for adult vital signs, including average body temperatures (oral, aural, and axillary), pulse rates (apical and radial), respiratory rates, and blood pressures
  • to visualize the relevant anatomy - pulse and temperature sites, and the main vessels - using our anatomy illustrations and 3D model
  • how to prepare for taking an adult's vital signs
  • to practice and perfect your skills in obtaining accurate temperatures and pulse rates, volume, and rhythm
  • how to take blood pressure and respiration rate accurately
  • the requirements for accurate recording of patient data obtained
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
