Physical Assessment Demo TODAY!!!!

  1. Hey, all. Ok, so I'm SUPER nervous today! :uhoh21: I've got my Physical Assessment return demo in 3 hours!! Thankfully, I've been studying all weekend, and feel like I have a good handle on things. The only problem I can see developing is going to be auscultation of lung sounds. Finding the IC spaces especially, anyone have any tips about finding those?
    I've been writing out the whole assessment process, without looking at our sheet, and do fine except I forget one side concept here or there, hoping it's not enough to fail me! Wish me luck!
    :eep breathing is your friend::

    It went well, and I even impressed the instructor when I could answer all her side questions. She told my partner and I that she could tell we'd been practicing, because my partner would get into sitting/lying position before I said anything to him! I'm just relieved I passed, and am happy that I haven't had any super tough demo instructors yet...Whew, that's a load off.
    Melissasmom, is yours a head to toe or a systems or how is it structured?
