Vital signs and Patient Care
Vital signs are an important component of patient care. They determine which treatment protocols to follow, provide critical information needed to make life-saving decisions, and confirm feedback on treatments performed.Blood pressure
NOTE: the systolic blood pressure is the number on the left, the diastolic blood pressure is the number on the right.
- Blood pressure is affected by the amount of blood lost as well as IVs and medication.
- Non existent: 0 - 20 systolic.
- Low: 20 - 100 systolic.
- Normal: 100 - 160 systolic.
- High: 160 and above systolic.
The heart rate (pulse) is affected by the amount of blood lost and medications.
- Low: 45 and below
- Normal: between 46 and 119
- High: 120 and above
A patient will enter cardiac arrest when:
- The heart rate is below 20.
- The heart rate is above 200.
- The systolic blood pressure is above 260.
- The diastolic blood pressure is below 40 and the heart rate is above 190.
- The systolic blood pressure is above 145 and the heart rate is above 150.
For the following procedure to work revive needs to be enabled.
- A unit in the revive state will be unconscious and will stay unconscious until it is either woken up or the revive timer runs out.
- A unit in the revive state can’t die from any source of damage, only the timer reaching 0 can kill it.
- Each successful CPR will increase the time the unit can stay in the revive state.
- To wake up a patient the use of a PAK is required.
- Each successful revive removes a life from the unit, once the lives run out the next time the unit will take fatal damage it will not enter the revive state and will die.
- Each successful round of CPR (filled up completion bar) increases the time left in the revive state.
