Vital (life) signs are very important. They tell you
and other medical personnel about the patient's present condition. By maintaining a
record of a patient's vital signs, the effectiveness of the medical treatment that the
patient receives can be evaluated. This course provides you with information you
need in order to take a person's vital signs.
