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.
excellent tutor. I have always enjoyed Dr. Holts lectures from Rheumatology but this is my best lecture series in lecturio so far
10000000 x better than "medical school." I think medical school actually makes you dumber. This is the way to go.
Excellent , this is what I was waiting for. Thank you very much!
In general, great course. Was missing examples of normal and pathological heart sounds to be played in since with the relevant parts of the course.
