Caption: Pulse check. Patient having their wrist pulse checked by a first aider. The first aider has two fingers lightly placed over a wrist artery to feel the heartbeat. The presence or absence of a wrist pulse allows further aid to be planned. The side of the neck below the jaw has another pulse that may be checked. The absence of a heartbeat will require emergency medical aid that sometimes uses chest compressions to restart the heart.
