I have talked to different students regarding physical exam...I still have questions and actually I am kinda confused....
In a typical case: what is the right order?
Should i always check BP if it's not a pt with cardiac issue/hypertension
Should I always do fundoscopy?
Should I always look at throat/dentition?
Peripheral lymph nodes?
Should I always check cranial nerves if is not a neuro patient?Muscle strength?Vision?... I am so confused!If I will perform all these thing,i am gonna run out of time!?
What includes a regular physical exam (I mean what is MUST DO)?
