    Any advice/hints on how to easily find pedal pulses?

    Practice, practice, practice. Friends, relatives, neighbors. People with normal circulation. Place your fingers along the tendon in the foot, just like you do when taking a radial pulse. If you have a patient with pulses that are hard to find, get a doppler from the nurses station. Sometimes nurses mark them with a ink X so they can find them later. Not kidding.
