Be prepared in any clinical setting with this portable, full-color, illustrated guide. Key information includes differential diagnosis tips, pediatric variations, sample documentation, and other helpful assessment data for quick reference. Separate chapters cover age-specific exams for infants, children, and adolescents, the healthy female evaluation, and reporting and documenting findings. The two-column format featuring Exam Techniques, Expected Findings, and Unexpected Findings provides quick and reliable reference to key exam steps. Over 250 full-color figures depicting anatomy and physiology, exam procedures, and normal and abnormal findings offer a visual guide to performing exams. Documentation examples promote concise yet thorough patient charting for each system exam. Aids to Differential Diagnosis Tables summarize distinguishing characteristics of abnormalities, making it easier to identify patients' symptoms. Lists of the equipment required in preparation for each system exam facilitate efficiency in the practice setting. Color-coded tables highlight pediatric variations and provide quick-reference coverage of developmental considerations specific to pediatric patients. Updates throughout reflect the latest research and evidence-based practice findings on all aspects of the physical exam. New content on electronic charting reflects the shift to electronic medical records in clinical practice and offers a current resource on what and how to chart. An updated drug table provides a list of physical findings potentially related to common classes of drugs.
