The vital signs are measurements of bodymost basic functions. These include body temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate and blood pressure. Temperature measurement is the recording of core body temperature and varies slightly with age, gender, recent activity and food and fluid consumption. The body temperature can be measured orally, rectally or axillary and is generally measured using a thermometer.
The pulse rate indicates the heart rhythm and strength of the pulse. The pulse rate is measured by a pulse oximeter. The respiration rate denotes the number of breaths taken by a person in a minute. The blood pressure is the pressure exerted by the circulating blood on the walls of the blood vessels and is usually measured using a sphygmomanometer.
