It is recommended that people with diabetes undergo annual neurological and foot pulse assessment as part of screening for complications of diabetes (NICE, 2004). It has been suggested by Brearly et al (1992) and Lundin et al (1999) that there may be a degree of unreliability in the use of the manual palpation technique to assess foot pulses. The authors conducted a study in primary care practice to see if Doppler ultrasound would result in more accurate pulse assessment and, therefore, more appropriate diabetes management.
