I might be missing something very obvious here, but is pulse not for the heart rate and respiration for the respiratory rate ?

CKM includes two archetypes -

openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.pulse.v1 &

openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.respiration.v1, Both of which seem to be capturing very similar data.

Which is recommended for general vitals recording of pulse rate? What is the reason why we have 2 very similar archetypes?
