Korotkoff Sounds
arterial sounds heard through a stethoscope applied to the brachial artery distal to the cuff of a sphygmomanometer that change with varying cuff pressure and that are used to determine systolic and diastolic blood pressure

Pulse
the rate at which the heart beats; usually measured to obtain a quick evaluation of a person's health.

Respiration Rate
respiration rate is the number of breaths a person takes per minute.
Normal respiration rates for an adult person at rest range from 15 to 20 breaths per minute.
Height and Weight
and
BMI (Body Max Index)
clinical measurements, specifically pulse rate, temperature, respiration rate, and blood pressure, that indicate the state of a patient's essential body functions.
Vital Signs
the pressure of the blood in the circulatory system, often measured for diagnosis since it is closely related to the force and rate of the heartbeat and the diameter and elasticity of the arterial walls.
