A few questions about the adult neuro orals coming up..: On the patient encounter - what kind of neuro exam should be done ... ie a focused one (including fundoscopy) or "complete". ie. should i be checking webber and rinne on everyone? Should i be prepared to test CN I, taste, etc. Also how complete should the fundoscopy be? I am comfortable looking at the disc, but i'm no expert at assessing all the vessel abnormalities, etc. Some where i read that we should use 'sterile safety pins'. Short of lighting a match over one, i have no clue how to get those. Also do we do a general physical exam? Vitals? look for skin lesions (in adults..peds - definately). ON the history portion: how much of a medical history do we need (beyond whats clearly relavent? (do i have to review all 18 systems, etc. ) After the H & P - do we discuss the case with the patient. (ie, do we counsel them, etc...) thanks for your help.
