Physical Exam

During the exam, information gathered. This can later be used as a baseline when compared to other exams over time, such as annual exams

A standard physical exam typically includes an overview of the patient’s medical history as well as an inspection of vital signs, vision acuity, a head, eyes, ears, nose and throat examination, a gastrointestinal examination, a cardiovascular examination, a respiratory assessment, a musculoskeletal assessment, a neurological examination and a skin and lymph node check.
