Respiratory Assessment!Register Today!
- by cccormier Nov 25, '11Hi 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.

Have you looked at the the health assessment resources in this thread?http://allnurses.com/nursing-student...es-145091.html
RN2007 attached a file that an instructor made for their class, it looks pretty helpful
also there are many other great links on the threadLast edit by dishes on Nov 25, '11
