ABSTRACT
The routine palpation of all pedal pulses should be a part of every industrial pre-employment physical examination for workers over 40. In routine pre-employment examinations the incidence of peripheral vascular disease in healthy laborers between the ages of 40 to 60 is 1 per cent. The dorsalis pedis pulse normally is not palpable in about 15 per cent of healthy laborers. But, the absence of both the dorsalis pedis and posterior pulse in an extremity is such an important sign of impending vascular disease that a waiver should be obtained before a worker is employed.
