lower-limb pulses

lower-limb pulses

lower-limb sites where arteries are palpable, i.e. where they overlie bone; e.g. inguinal (femoral); popliteal, anterior tibial, posterior tibial, dorsalis pedis and peroneal pulses; distal pulses are weaker than proximal, and become increasing difficult to palpate with peripheral vascular disease or oedema Figure 1
