Allen's Test- YOU'VE got to check out this website. I wanted to upload a great website, http://fpnotebook.com but it has very few pix, but at the very bottom there are usually links to pictures. It has tons of diseases, anatomy, PEDs, OB, lab & diagnostic tests, and more. It's easy to understand and the info is divided into 'books' mostly by body system. There is also an alphabetical list.
Allen Test: "Hold patient's hand with palm up. Have patient clench and unclench hand while occluding radial and ulnar arteries. The hand will become pale. Lower the hand and have patient relax the hand. While continuing to hold radial artery, release pressure on ulnar artery. Brisk return of color (5 to 7 seconds) demonstrates adequate ulnar blood flow. If pallor persists for more than 15 seconds, ulnar flow is inadequate and radial artery cannulation should not be attempted." - Jarvis
