Circulation to the f: To check circulation you can check your pulses on the top of the foot and on the inside of the ankles. If you can palpate these pulses, then you know you're getting adequate circulation. The best way is to do a dopler or a non-invasive vascular study to determine blood flow and if its adequate.
