About The Course:

Marcus Johnson, 53-year-old male, is in the emergency room for a checkup as he was feeling short of breath. As a preliminary checkup procedure, his radial pulse will have to be read. 

This VR simulation for Radial Pulse is designed to help healthcare professionals locate and listen to a patient’s radial pulse. With both training and assessment modes, learners can perform the procedure and assess themselves on their performance.  

Learning Objectives:
  • Employ clinically approved method of finding the radial pulse 
  • Apply standard technique of listening to a radial pulse 
  • Educate the patient on the finding of the pulse reading 
  • Accreditation Association for Hospitals and Health Systems. (2017). Standard 07.02.03. Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program: Accreditation requirements for acute care hospitals. Chicago, IL: Accreditation Association for Hospitals and Health Systems. (Level VII)

Core Skills Training

Radial Pulse Reading

As a part of this Radial Pulse procedure, the user will begin by verifying the identity of the patient. The learner will perform hand hygiene and then inform the patient of the procedure. Using their index and middle finger, the learner will locate the radial pulse on the inside of the patient’s wrist. After taking a reading of the pulse, the learner will inform the patient of the result.
All necessary affordances are provided to complete the procedure with efficiency.


With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient.  

  • Photorealistic virtual environment  
  • Physics-based interactions  
  • Detailed instructions  
  • Adequate affordances to assist in task completion 


Test acquired skills to perform the procedures from start to finish without prompts. An incorrect step will take the learner back to the start to start afresh.  

  • Live scoring  
  • Instant feedback  
  • Adequate affordances for efficient performance  
  • Time tracking to monitor activity completion
