Examination of Cardiovascular and Respiratory System

Examination of Cardiovascular and Respiratory System

by Stephen Holt, MD, MS

The physical examination of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems is a fundamental part of the standard physical exam. It understandably relies on the previous comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the relevant structures. Mainly, this exam consists of the inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation of the thorax, along with the medical history.

The assessment focuses on the integrity and proper functioning of the heart, great vessels, and thoracic cage, and lungs. The key is to identify and distinguish normal functioning from abnormal conditions, including heart sounds, murmurs, arrhythmias, pleural diseases, and normal and adventitious breath sounds.
