How to determine the pulse on the carotid artery?

To determine the pulse on the carotid artery, you need to put your fingertips on the front surface of the trachea in the middle of the neck and, pressing them to the skin, slowly shift them to the right side of the neck until they abut the edge of the muscle. Here you should slightly increase the pressure back and forth: the carotid artery should pulsate under the fingers.
