Physical examination and clinical diagnosis is the next step after the core subjects of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Differential Diagnosis. Acquiring effective and safe clinical skills is perhaps the most important stage in the clinician's progression from theory to application. This unique ground-breaking presentation harnesses the use of technology to develop a visual tool that stimulates and enhances learning.
Perhaps the most complex of the physical examination procedures is presented here in a simplified a manner with the aid of many diagrams, animations and video footage. Important anatomical structures are explained inc. the spinal tracts, peripheral nerves, dermatomes and myotomes. Many important key concepts are explained inc. upper and lower motor neurone lesions and their manifestations. The examiner presents a detailed narrated examination procedure beginning with observation of posture and gait, systematic evaluation of major muscles, active and passive movements, power, co-ordination, reflexes, the sensory modalities and special tests. Option for real-time examination procedure (without narration), with or without subtitles. It also contains an extensive Q&A slide show. A revision booklet is enclosed. Over 350 tables, images and animations.
