Description

Video 15 from the Jarvis Physical Examination and Health Assessment Video Series takes a systematic approach to the complete examination of a preschooler, combining body-system assessments within the same region and adapting techniques to suit the child’s developmental stage. First, it shows how to obtain an overview by observing general appearance, measuring height and weight, and assessing vital signs. Then it proceeds through the body regions, saving potentially distressing examinations for last. It includes examination of the chest and heart, abdomen, genitalia (with variations for girls and boys), legs, arms, head and neck, eyes, nose, mouth and throat, and ears.
