comprehensive 330 slide Guide to Physical Examination and History-Taking.
Foundational content to guide students’ approaches to history taking, interviewing, and other core assessment skills, step-by-step techniques that outline correct performance of physical examination.
A clear, logical, and holistic approach to physical exam across the lifespan. Approaching each system from a developmental perspective, this course addresses each specific system divided into four major components: interviewing techniques, anatomy and physiology, examination techniques, and normal variations and common abnormal findings all detailing how to approach each age group.
With the clues obtained during the history and physical examination the healthcare provider can now formulate a differential diagnosis, a list of potential causes of the symptoms. Specific diagnostic tests (or occasionally empirical therapy) generally confirm the cause, or shed light on other, previously overlooked, causes.
A complete physical examination includes evaluation of general patient appearance and specific organ systems. It is recorded in the medical record in a standard layout which facilitates others later reading the notes. In practice the vital signs of temperature examination, pulse and blood pressure are usually measured first.
