Respiratory Assessment!

  1. 0 Hi there,

    I'm in my first year in a BScN program and our group is soon to be evaluated on the Respiratory, Abdominal, Peripheral Vascular, Neurological and Muskuloskeletal assessments.
    I am most nervous about conducting the Respiratory portion as I can not seem to find if I need to start with auscultating the anterior or posterior of the body?
    If someone could help me out or share their knowledge, that would be great!
    Also, any tips/pointers on any of the above assessments would be so kind.

    Why don't you ask the teacher where to start?

    Best of luck. I remember that practical demonstration. It was nerve wracking. But we all passed.

    It doesn't really matter whether you start with the front or the back.

    Have you looked at the the health assessment resources in this thread?Health Assessment Resources, Techniques, and Forms
    RN2007 attached a file that an instructor made for their class, it looks pretty helpful

    also there are many other great links on the thread
