Carotid Pulse: The carotid pulse is one of the palpable pulses, tangible heartbeats that can be felt in various arterial sites throughout the body. The carotid pulse can be felt on either side of, or lateral to, the larynx in the neck on the carotid artery.
Normally, the carotid pulse can be felt by the fingers, but in some conditions, such as shock and low blood pressure, an instrument called a doppler may be needed to find the carotid pulse and amplify it so it can be heard. Conditions that can afflict the carotid pulse include arterial clots, arterial embolisms, hemorrhage, shock, cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac arrest.
