Do you have to take a BP on a real human for the psychomotor exam?

Well I understand you can't take a real BP on a manikin. So I guess let me rephrase. When doing a scenario, will you ever have a live "patient" aka an actor, that I will have to put a blood pressure cuff on and use my stethoscope to take a real BP? Or do I just put them on a manikin and ask the instructor what it would be?

It’s up to your testing program. If you’re worried about taking vitals, you better start practicing on everyone you can.

It depends. If we are using a patient actor, you’ll take a BP on the patient actor and the proctor will tell you what the simulation BP is. If we’re using a high fidelity manikin, you’ll take a BP on the manikin.
