1.40 With regards to the requirement R 3.1.4, the casualty radial pulse is required to be measured directly by the vital signs device or it can be deduced using other measured parameters? Please explain.

Similarly to question 1.39, also the R3.1.4 is one of the (Desirably) automatically measured vital parameters. It is therefore desirable to have this parameter measured automatically, via triage tag or also in different ways. We leave this decision up to the suppliers.
