pulse defined in 1951 year

pulse - pulse;
pulse - Wave of raised pressure which passes rapidly (much faster than rate of flow of blood) from heart outwards among all the arteries, every time the ventricle discharges its contents of blood into the aorta. The increased pressure dilates the arteries, and this can be felt; the dilation also relieves the pressure somewhat, so that the pulse dies away as it proceeds and has quite disappeared in the capillaries.
