The carotid pulse is on the neck. The brachial pulse is in the elbow. The radial pulse is at the wrist. The femoral pulse is in the groin. The popliteal pulse is behind the knee. The tibial pulse is on the ankle. The pedal pulse is on the foot. A nurse usually takes the radial pulse and assesses* it for rate, rhythm and strength. The normal pulse rate is approximately beats per minute (bpm). Tachycardia is a rapid resting pulse rate usually over 100 bpm and bradycardia is the name given to slow pulse rate usually below 60 bpm. A pulse can be bounding* or weak and thready*. It can be regular or irregular. Blood pressure readings* are different in France and in Anglo-Saxon countries. In France, they are measured in Kilopascals and in Anglo-Saxon countries they are measured in MmHg = millimeters of mercury. For example, in France a patient is told he has a blood pressure reading of 12. In an Anglo-Saxon country, this would be approximately 120. (Just add* a zero). Also a French doctor only says the top* measurement = systolic. In Anglo- Saxon countries, the doctor gives the patient the systolic and the diastolic (the lower number) so, a reading of 12/6 in France is read in English as 120 over 60. A patient is hypotensive (low blood pressure) or hypertensive (high blood pressure). It is measured with a Sphygmomanometer*. The temperature is measured with a thermometer. Temperature readings are recorded* in Centigrade or Fahrenheit. Temperature readings are measured orally (in the mouth), in the ear, in the axilla, on the forehead or rectally* and the reading varies* according to* the part of the body that is measured. A normal oral body temperature is 36.8 C or 98.2 F. The respiratory rate* (RR) is measured by placing* the hand on the chest* of the patient and counting the number of breaths* for 60 seconds. The respiratory rate varies from 12 to 20 breaths per minute. r Extra Vocabulary assesses (to assess) évaluer bounding bondissant thready fi lant blood pressure readings lectures de la tension artérielle add (to add) ajoute (ajouter) top supérieur / en haut syphgmomanometer appareil de tension (sphyg) artérielle infl atable cuff brassard de tensiomètre recorded (to record) enregistrer / tracer / mesurer rectally varies (to vary) according to respiratory rate placing (to place) chest breath(s) breathlessness to be breathless rectal varier selon, d après, en fonction de taux (fréquence) respiratoire en plaçant / placer thorax respiration(s) essouffl ement être essouffl é (à bout de souffl e) 10 grammar How to Make Questions Questions with the verb to be. To make questions with the verb to be, inverse the subject and the verb. Ex.: He is English. = Is he English? All the other verbs use the auxiliary DO, DOES, DID. Ex.: Do they take blood pressures in the morning? DOES he HAVE a temperature? Questions in the past use the auxiliary DID. Ex.: Did she work on Pasteur ward last year? All verbs, except the verb to be, use the formula: Auxiliary Subject Infinitive (ASI) which is easy to remember. Modal verbs follow the same rule. Ex.: May I drink after midnight? CAN he EXAMINE you now? exercise 2 Make questions from the following affirmative sentences. 1. Mr. Jordan was admitted to hospital last week....? 2. He was suffering from an RIH....? 3. He had a partner....? 4. He waited a year for his operation....? 5. The nurse took his BP....? 6. He shared a room with Mr. Phillips....? grammar QUESTION WORDS Which? = objet = que? Where? = lieu = où? Why? = raison = pourquoi? Who? = personne = qui? When? = temps = quand? What? = information ; opinion = quoi, quel? How? = manière = comment? How much? = quantité = combien? How many? = pluriel = combien? How long? = durée = combien de temps? How often? = fréquence = combien de fois? To make a question using a question word, use the following formula: QW.A.S.I. = Question word + auxiliary + subject + infinitive. 11 With the verb to be : the question word is immediately followed by the verb to be. Ex.: When does the doctor operate? QW.A.S.I. but Where is the nurse? Modal verbs can replace DO, DOES, DID. Read the following examples: To be Which is the best? Where is the ward? Why are the nurses tired? Who is the patient? When is my operation? What is your name? How are you? How much is it? How many are in the room? How long is the operation? Who can he ask? When may I eat? All other verbs Which do you like best? Where do you live? Why does she have a temperature? Who does he think he is? When does the doctor visit? What did you want? How do they know? How much do you charge? How many did you want? How long did it take? exercise 3 Make questions with the following affirmative sentences using the question word in brackets. 1. My appointment was at 10 o clock. (WHEN)...? 2. His operation is tomorrow. (WHEN)...? 3. He liked the room. (WHAT)...? 4. Janet was in the bathroom. (WHERE) The nurse asked questions. (WHAT)...? 6. The patient is tired because he didn t sleep. (WHY)...? 7. He waited a year. (HOW LONG)...? grammar Look carefully: When a question word = WHO, WHAT, WHICH, etc., replaces the subject of the sentence, DO NOT USE the auxiliaries DO / DOES / DID. Ex.: Nurse Waite takes the temperature. = Who takes the temperature? (subject) When a question word replaces the object of the question, use the auxiliaries. Ex.: Nurse Waite takes the temperature. = What does Nurse Waite take? (object) 12
