Introduction to Vital Signs Examination and Evaluation Study Guide
This module will walk the student or clinician through the fundamentals of assessing vital signs. This module is broken down into sections for ease of use and will follow a sequence that reflects how vital signs are assessed in a health care environment. The guide was not designed to replace a comprehensive physical examination course or textbook. Additionally, because this module was designed to be completed in tandem with “hands-on” or experiential learning laboratory (i.e., clinical practice), the learner should complete the linked laboratory performance tool as he/she completes the module (i.e., click the "PDF” icon to access the attached tool). The individual sections of the module are described below.
