am trying to figure it out exam procedure. Like how much time to spend per patient and where to write notes on paper or computer.
Could you please exlain exam procedure or if there is link/site form where i can read.

There will not be any thing abnormal. Lets say patient complian of chest pain with inspiration. so you are worried about pericarditiis but you will not hear any pericardial rub so what will you write in PE. or patient is say he is feverish.


Who do the vitals? Are you requied to take vitals or they will be listed. Do you take BP for instatnce in case of pulus peridoxsus? Do they provide otoscope and optholomoscope.


Form where do you get cotton swab, tongue depressor, alcholol swab? are they in patient's room or else where.

please help.
