Reading medical reports can be like deciphering a foreign language. Knowing whether a proper physical examination has been done and what the descriptive terminology means. Trying to understand the names tests done of during examinations and knowing what they really are testing. Determining whether the examination and tests are even relevant to the injured body part. This course will look at a few of the common injured body parts and walk through a physical examination, define tests done during the examination, and terminology.
The course objectives are as follows:
*Attendee will understand the normal anatomy of selected body parts.
*Attendee will understand what a thorough physical examination entails for selected body parts.
*Attendee will understand the purpose of manual tests done during the course of a physical exam and how those tests are performed.
*Attendee will understand how the physical exam and tests performed during an exam lead to a diagnosis.
*Attendee will understand how the physical exam relates to the PR4 and interpreting the information contained in the medical report.
Time: 8:00 am – 12:30 pm
