Temporal Pulse

Summary Information: Temporal Pulse

Temporal Pulse: The temporal pulse is one of the palpable pulses, tangible heartbeats that can be felt in various arterial sites throughout the body. The temporal pulse can be felt just in front of the ear on the skull on the temporal artery.

Normally, the temporal 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 temporal pulse include pseudoaneurysm of the temporal artery, arterial clots, arterial embolisms, hemorrhage, shock, cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac arrest.
