1. Use your fingers to find the pulse
Use two fingers or three fingers, namely the index finger, middle finger and ring finger to find your pulse. But do not use your thumb because your thumb has a pulse itself.

Inspection can be done on the wrist (radial pulse) and in the neck (carotid pulse).

At the wrist, use three finger pads of index, middle and ring fingers. The ideal place is below the wrist crease at the base of the thumb. Press lightly until you find the pulse (the blood pulsing beneath the fingers). If necessary, move the fingers until you find the most taut pulse.

In the neck just use two fingers, index and middle fingers. The ideal spot is about one inch to the side of the center of the throat, right where the neck and jaw meet.

2. Check and record level, strength and rhythm
Use a clock or watch in the hands of another. Calculate and record how many pulses that occurred within 10 seconds.

3. Multiplied by 6
Heart rate is the number of beats per minute. So the number of beats for 10 seconds multiplied by the number 6 (60 seconds each with 1 minute). The result is your heartbeat.
