There is no one best method for feminist research the situation or context guides the choice of the method to be used.

Methodological choices are made depending on the particular situation or context, instead of having a trust in the method as appropriate for every context and situation (Greaves et al., 1995, p. 334.

There so many types of data collection methods in research and the biophysiologics is one. It is popular in the medical field, both in practice and research because they deal with the human body. although this method is good, it still has its merits and demerits just as other methods have.The method for Data collection depends on the type of study. They are measures of biological function obtained through use of thermometers pulse technology, such as electrocardiogram or haemodynamic monitoring. They are used to monitor nursing actions or interventions and its effect on patient health. The purpose for use:
• to evaluate specific nursing procedures or interventions testing a hypothesis.
• improving measurement and recording of bio physiologic data collected by RN
• correlation of physiologic function in patient with health problems there are two types:

In-Vivo measures measurements performed directly with in or on living organisms themselves performed within living organisms. In-Vitro measurements performed outside the organism’s body measures gathered from participants by extracting some bio physiologic material from them and subjecting it to laboratory analysis chemical measures.e.g. microbiologic measures, histologic

They are used for all patients e.g. blood pressure monitoring, pulse, oxygen concentration, haematocrit chemistry and histological test. However we do not do clinical research for testing the efficacy of drugs but we monitor compliance of hypertensive, diabetics, asthmatics and sickle cell anaemia and use the parameters to assess or evaluate compliance treatment effectiveness as care coordinators. This is a key performance indicator for my unit as we look after these cases. My colleagues understand its importance and reports are analysed and clients followed up to their homes or through phone calls and
