Why Does a Doctor Check the Pulse?

Ask Us Questions

When a doctor checks the pulse, he or she is counting heartbeats per minute. This tells the doctor about the health of the patient's heart. The pulse rate depends on the blood requirement of the body and this indicates the pressure on the circulatory system. An irregular pulse rate indicates a fault in the normal functioning of the heart. A good practitioner of Ayurveda can simply measure the pulse of a person and understand all about the ailments in the body.
