Pulse rate is counted by putting slight pressure on any section of the body where the artery is close to the skin and where the pulsations can be felt. The most convenient location is the radial section of the wrist (radial pulse). Other locations include side of the neck (carotid pulse), groin (femoral pulse) or side of the feet (Posterior tibial artery pulse).

  • Place your index finger and middle finger just below the thumb
  • Exert slight pressure with the index and second finger against the wrist bone
  • Count the pulse for 30 seconds using a watch or clock and multiply this number by 2

I am 41 yrs of age, i have high blood pressure, sugar diabetes and i have a 'Bockdalek Hernia', whereby my small intestines and part of my spleen has moved through the diaphraigm to under my left lung. There is a history of heart disease in my family also. Over the past 2 months i've been experiencing palpitations...my heart rate reaching 128 or more and pain going up my neck and into my jaw..could this be related to the hernia or some form of heart condition?
