This session will be a demonstration of a full lower limb vascular assessment including palpation of pulses from the femoral to the foot and include the use of doppler waveforms/ sounds, toe, and ankle pressures. Candidates will be given the opportunity to carry out a basic vascular assessment to meet clinical guideline 147 and practice their skills.
- To identify candidates' individual learning needs for ongoing professional development
- To introduce basic vascular skills to align practice to national and international guidelines
- To introduce principles of correct doppler technique and interpretation of doppler sounds and waveforms
