In APTA's new podcast, Pump UpThe Cuff: The Importance of Monitoring Vital Signs, Cecilia Graham, PT, PhD, and Diane Clark, PT, DScPT, focus on the importance and necessity of routine monitoring of vital signs by physical therapists. Graham and Clark discuss what is meant by vital signs based on the definition provided by Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking and why physical therapists should be concerned about patients' vital signs. The podcast also includes a patient scenario to help illustrate the importance of monitoring vital signs.
A transcript, video, and PowerPoint accompany the podcast.
