Vital Signs Assessment
Vital Signs (VS) include the measurement of pulse, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and temperature. These numbers provide critical information (hence the name "vital") about a patient's state of health.
Control of significant bleeding is a top priority during patient care as hemorrhage the leading cause of preventable death in both civilian and military trauma.

Practical Actions[edit | edit source]
Practical Action has a unique approach to development – we don't start with technology but with people. The tools may be simple or sophisticated – but to provide long-term, appropriate and practical answers, they must be firmly in the hands of local people: people who shape technology and control it for themselves.
Bicycle Trailers (Practical Action Technical Brief)
To make sure that the cycle trailer are affordable, Practical Action works with local partner organizations who operate credit schemes at low interest rates.
The 'A' frame (Practical Action Brief)
The A Frame at least assists the farmer to safely peg and construct contours that save the soil
Tsetse fly management (Practical Action Brief)
Trapping technology, which is often enhanced with attractant odours that attract and kill tsetse flies, is relatively simple and less polluting to the environment than insecticide application.
