The information you obtain in this history taking will allow you to make the best treatment decisions. It is also important to document your findings using the patient's own words whenever possible. As you perform your physical examination, stop and treat any life-threatening problems as soon as you find them. For a responsive medical patient, your physical exam will typically be brief, and will consist of a focused physical exam. You will focus your exam on the chief complaint. If you are responding to a trauma patient, you will focus on the injury. Many patients feel vulnerable when subjected to a physical exam. To provide reassurance, maintain professionalism and demonstrate compassion throughout the entire exam. [MUSIC] Thank you for viewing this program excerpt.
