This 16 minute video shows the steps needed to examine the head and neck as well as the lymphatic system, including the proper use of equipment. With the patient seated, it demonstrates how to inspect, palpate, and auscultate various structures of the head and neck. It also presents inspection and palpation of lymph nodes in the head, neck, axillae, and epitrochlear and inguinal regions. The video shows expected findings in adults and contrasts them with selected variations in pediatric and geriatric patients.
