  • Concerned Pulse Rate 32

    My sister's pulse rate has been very low, 32 when the RN took it today..what can be causing this? Is she is a dangerous situation?

    It would help if you would complete your empty profile, and tell us also more about your sister. Does she have a SCI? If so, what level and ASIA category? How old is she? What was her blood pressure at the time? Did she have any symptoms of autonomic dysreflexia at the time? Was she alert and oriented? Was she producing reasonable amounts of urine? What did the nurse say/do?

They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
