STUDY OBJECTIVE--To examine the impact of a comprehensive periodic health examination programme on health care utilisation and costs in a working population. DESIGN--A cohort method was used to observe the trends in health care utilisation and costs for a group of local government employees from 1 February 1986 until 31 January 1992, during which time (in 1988) a comprehensive periodic health examination programme had been introduced. Health care utilisation was measured by a claim rate per employee (number of claims in a year divided by number of employees) and a utilisation rate per 100 employees (number of employees who submitted at least one claim in a year divided by number of employees x 100). Health care costs were measured by claim costs per employee (total cost of claims divided by number of employees). National and prefectural changes in per capita health care costs were used for the adjustment of claim costs. Internal comparisons were made in relation to the intensiveness of the ...
Bleeding and bruising are common symptoms in the primary care setting. The patient history can help determine whether the bruising or bleeding is abnormal. The International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis has developed a bleeding assessment tool that can be used to indicate possible pathology. A family history of bleeding problems may suggest a hereditary coagulation defect. Such a history is especially important in children who may not have experienced a major bleeding episode. Medication review can identify pharmacologic causes of the bleeding or bruising. Physical examination findings such as mucocutaneous bleeding suggest that the underlying condition is caused by platelet dysfunction, whereas hemarthroses or hematomas are more common in coagulopathy. If the history and physical examination findings suggest a bleeding diathesis, initial laboratory testing includes a complete blood count, peripheral blood smear, prothrombin time (PT), and partial thromboplastin time (PTT). A normal PT and PTT
Background: Little is known about using the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) in physical diagnosis courses. The purpose of this study was to describe student performance on an OSCE in a physical diagnosis course. Methods: Cross-sectional study at Harvard Medical School, 1997-1999, for 489 second-year students. Results: Average total OSCE score was 57% (range 39-75%). Among clinical skills, students scored highest on patient interaction (72%), followed by examination technique (65%), abnormality identification (62%), history-taking (60%), patient presentation (60%), physical examination knowledge (47%), and differential diagnosis (40%) (p , .0001). Among 16 OSCE stations, scores ranged from 70% for arthritis to 29% for calf pain (p , .0001). Teaching sites accounted for larger adjusted differences in station scores, up to 28%, than in skill scores (9%) (p , .0001). Conclusions: Students scored higher on interpersonal and technical skills than on interpretive or integrative skills. ...

Diagnosis. The diagnosis of vestibular disease involves a physical examination and a neurologic examination (specific physical examination "tests" used to assess the patients nerve and brain function). Your veterinarian will likely examine the ear canal to see if there is evidence of an infection or tumor. X-rays of the skull may also show tumors or evidence of fluid or inflammation in the middle or inner ear.. Some veterinarians have access to sophisticated equipment for computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can provide detailed images of the brain and inner ear. If this equipment is not available, diagnosis is based largely on clinical signs and physical examination findings.. Treatment. The goal of treatment is to address the underlying problem and keep the animal as comfortable as possible until recovery is adequate. If the patient is suffering from an ear infection, the infection should be treated. Sometimes, a course of antibiotics is given. Other treatments ...
In summary, bedside airway examination tests for detecting a difficult airway are intended as screening tests and are expected to miss only very few patients with a potential problem. They are recommended in airway management guidelines around the world, but we have found that they often fail to meet their goal and that most are little better than simply flipping a coin to decide if the patient has a difficult airway. On the other hand, the tests were consistently better at showing that a patient did not have a difficult airway when there really did not have one, but this is of little relevance in this context. In conclusion, therefore, standard bedside airway examination tests for difficult airways in patients with no apparent airway abnormalities do not appear to be good screening tests, and we urge great caution in their use and interpretation.. Monaz: If youd like to look in more depth at the results of the tests individually and collectively, the full Cochrane Review is available online at ...
To differentiate the causes of bleeding disorders requires a basic understanding of the hemostatic process and the proper interpretation of history, physical examination, and laboratory tests. A brief overview of the hemostatic process is presented. Tables and flow charts are provided to assist in developing a sound clinical approach to the bleeding patient through the proper assessment of history, physical examination findings, and laboratory tests. Categories of inherited and acquired bleeding disorders are briefly presented.
The physical examination findings are often nonspecific. Patients may be asymptomatic, or they may appear ill, with pallor and abdominal distress. Note the following: Palpable tender or nontender mas... more

Background: Physical examination tests of the shoulder (PETS) are clinical examination maneuvers designed to aid the assessment of shoulder complaints. Despite more than 180 PETS described in the literature, evidence of their validity and usefulness in diagnosing the shoulder is questioned. Methods: This meta-analysis aims to use diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) to evaluate how much PETS shift overall probability and to rank the test performance of single PETS in order to aid the clinicians choice of which tests to use. This study adheres to the principles outlined in the Cochrane guidelines and the PRISMA statement. A fixed effect model was used to assess the overall diagnostic validity of PETS by pooling DOR for different PETS with similar biomechanical rationale when possible. Single PETS were assessed and ranked by DOR. Clinical performance was assessed by sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and likelihood ratio. Results: Six thousand nine-hundred abstracts and 202 full-text articles were ...
Your companion will then undergo a preliminary examination. After this, the attending surgeon will review history and physical examination findings with you and formulate a plan for further diagnosis.. For example, if radiography or ultrasound examinations are necessary, mild sedation may be required and imaging will be performed within 3-4 hours. You will be invited to return to review the results of these and other tests, and to discuss options for medical or surgical management.. In general, more invasive diagnostic procedures such as biopsy and advanced imaging are scheduled on the following day. If no further diagnosis is required, then surgery is usually performed on the day after initial consultation.. As you will understand, patients with life threatening conditions in need of immediate surgical care will take priority and this can delay your consultation. We ask for your patience and promise that we will strive to make your visit a helpful and satisfying experience.. ...
The student(s) will then inquire about your pets history and perform a physical examination of your pet. This experience is invaluable to the education and development of our students, and we appreciate your patience and understanding in allowing these future veterinarians to interact with you and your pet.. The student(s) will then excuse themselves and consult with either a cardiology resident or cardiologist on service regarding their recorded history, physical examination findings, and recommendations for case management. A cardiologist or cardiology resident will then accompany the student(s) back to your examination room and, after introducing themselves, will examine your pet and discuss their initial findings and recommendations for management of your pets case.. In most cases, you will be asked to leave your pet in the care of the student(s) after this initial examination so that we may begin appropriate diagnostic testing, which commonly includes: electrocardiography, ...
Preoperative testing (e.g., chest radiography, electrocardiography, laboratory testing, urinalysis) is often performed before surgical procedures. These investigations can be helpful to stratify risk, direct anesthetic choices, and guide postoperative management, but often are obtained because of protocol rather than medical necessity. The decision to order preoperative tests should be guided by the patients clinical history, comorbidities, and physical examination findings. Patients with signs or symptoms of active cardiovascular disease should be evaluated with appropriate testing, regardless of their preoperative status. Electrocardiography is recommended for patients undergoing high-risk surgery and those undergoing intermediate-risk surgery who have additional risk factors. Patients undergoing low-risk surgery do not require electrocardiography. Chest radiography is reasonable for patients at risk of postoperative pulmonary complications if the results would change perioperative management.
Symptoms of liver disease are commonly nonspecific and can be gastrointestinal (vomiting, diarrhoea, anorexia), urinary (PU/PD, problems due to urate urolithiasis), haematological (pallor, icterus), and/or neurological (behaviour change, ataxia, seizure). Physical examination findings differ widely and may include hepatomegaly, ascites, abdominal pain, weight loss, fever and abnormal neurological test results. Hepatobiliary and vascular disorders can originate primarily from the liver, but can also be secondary to multiple extrahepatic disorders, such as gastrointestinal, haematological and circulatory diseases, endocrinopathies, neoplasia and systemic infections (including sepsis). Drugs and toxins can also cause primary and secondary liver problems.. Many biochemical tests are available to evaluate the livers anabolic and/or catabolic function and hepatic circulation. These include measurement of serum bile acid concentrations, plasma ammonia concentration and bile pigment (bilirubin) ...
1. The patient is a 25-year-old female who presents because her dentist noted prolonged bleeding after extraction of two wisdom teeth. The patient has a history of menorrhagia and notes that her mother had the same problem. Physical examination findings are unremarkable except for some bruising in her lower extremities, which the patient explains are due to "my usual clumsiness." She denies any easy bleeding in the past. CBC is normal. Which of the following results would you expect to see?. a. Increased prothrombin time (PT). b. Increased activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). c. Increased bleeding time. d. Decreased factor IX assay. Answer: c. Explanation: This patient has the classic history for von Willebrand disease, which would result in an increased bleeding time with normal PT and aPTT.. ...
As radiologists, we depend heavily on imaging as our primary diagnostic tool. We have thus come to believe that what we see with imaging is objective truth: only what we see is real; what we do not see does not exist. Most radiologists have little direct patient contact, so there is a tendency to discount or ignore the patients history and physical examination findings. These aspects of diagnosis, which are dependent upon patient responses, are considered to be too subjective.. Is there any facet of radiology that has led to more controversy than diskography, an examination dependent more on a patients responses than on imaging? Some radiologists feel there is no scientific basis for diskography, because it relies heavily on a patients subjective responses. Others further complain that not enough reproducible studies have been performed to assure scientific credibility.. Radiologists may find it hard to believe that what we see is not always clinically significant, and what we cannot see may ...
The focus of this section will be on anemia related to factors other than traumatic anemia which is covered in Chapter 57. The prehospital provider will often encounter symptomatic anemia which may be at the root of activating the 9-1-1 system though not as obvious as a 9-1-1 call for clinical bleeding. The chief complaint with symptomatic anemia is more likely to be related to the ramifications of decreased oxygen-carrying capacity than the knowledge that the RBC volume is compromised. The physical examination findings are well known to the reader as are the general principles of management. The question is what parts of the standard emergency department schema are applicable to the prehospital environment and how much of it is truly needed? We will divide the discussion into three sections. The first two sections will relate to insufficient RBC production or excessive RBC destruction with the third focusing on acute blood loss other than from traumatic causes. ...
JNJ-38877605 is a new drug being developed for the treatment of cancer. It is an inhibitor of mesenchymal epithelial transition (Met) kinase, a substance identified in many cancers. This is the first study in which JNJ-38877605 will be administered in man. This research study is being carried out to determine the highest dose of JNJ-38877605 that patients with advanced or refractory solid tumors can tolerate. The study will also test the safety of JNJ-38877605. Safety evaluations will include an assessment of adverse events, clinical laboratory data, electrocardiograms, vital signs measurements, physical examination findings, and Eastern Oncology Cooperative Group (ECOG) performance status. In some patients the effect of food on how the drug is absorbed will also be studied. Throughout the study, treatment will be given in cycles which will be 21 days long and the study drug will be taken once a day. The number of cycles will depend on the effects the drug has on the patient and whether the ...

We thank Gowda et al and Yudkowsky for engaging with us in a dialogue about the optimal approach to teaching and assessing the physical exam. It is clear we all agree that the physical exam requires renewed focus and curriculum development, and we hope this discussion contributes to returning the physical exam to a place of prominence in the clinical realm. We appreciate the opportunity to reply to their comments.. First, we continue to assert that the Core + Clusters approach is unlikely to significantly decrease the cognitive load of learning the physical exam. Gowda et al write that they envision a "limited set of clusters," and yet, since the clusters are still in development, the number and scope of necessary clusters is still unknown. We believe the list will turn out to be quite extensive. Also, we do not advocate the performance of unnecessary physical exam maneuvers, but we feel that the head-to-toe is a prudent approach to assessing patients with vague and/or numerous symptoms. ...
Atherosclerosis in artery. Photo: Science Photo. Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is an inflammatory disease affecting the arteries supplying the brain, heart, other organs and extremities with oxygen-rich blood. A well-established atherosclerosis disease, with accumulation of plaque narrowing the arteries, can obstruct the blood supply to the brain and other vital organs. Atherosclerosis in the neck arteries can cause stroke. The serious condition, known as carotid stenosis, is quite common in the elderly as well as in people with risk factors such as hypertension, smoking, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia and obesity. Atherosclerosis disease progression can be controlled by medical treatment including cholesterol-lowering drugs, and significant narrowing in symptomatic patients can be treated surgically. "We know that preventive surgical treatment of carotid stenosis is only beneficial for a small subgroup, and that most asymptomatic patients will do better with only medical ...

By: Mayo Clinic Health System staff Historically, men have been hesitant to seek medical attention when something with their health seems awry. Additionally, men arent as likely as women to have preventive screenings and checkups with their health care provider. This is a problem, because early detection of a medical issue is the best way to improve effectiveness of condition treatment and management. In fact, delaying or avoiding a checkup or screening can lead to a treatable situation turning deadly.. So, men, reconsider your reservations about the doctors office and ensure you talk to your health care team about the following potentially life-saving screenings.. Regular physical exams. Men older than 50 should have a yearly physical exam, and men younger than age 50 should have a physical exam every three to five years. Even if youre feeling healthy, a regular checkup with your provider is a good way to validate your health or identify a problem in its early stages.. Another thing to think ...

It reinforces for me that history and physical are a superb way to find out the problem, and putting all the pieces of the jigsaw together one can form the diagnosis where a scan may be unhelpful or at least difficult to interpret. Physical examination can show the physician where the problem is likely to be, and even if the scan is negative, the physical signs cannot be ignored nor should they be, as they will tell the doctor that the problem is present. Repeated physical examination will also tell the doctor whether the patient is getting better or worse!! ...

An accurate medical history and directed physical examination are essential in diagnosis of male infertility. We review the hormonal assessments and specific genetic analyses that are useful additional tests, and detail other evidence-based examinations that are available to help guide therapeutic strategies. By contrast with female infertility treatments-especially hormonal manipulations to stimulate or enhance oocyte production-spermatogenesis and sperm quality abnormalities are much more difficult to affect positively. In general, a healthy lifestyle can improve sperm quality. A few men have conditions in which evidence-based therapies can increase their chances for natural conception. In this second of two papers in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology Series on male reproductive impairment, we examine the agreements and controversies that surround several of these conditions. When we are not able to cure, correct, or mitigate the cause of conditions such as severe oligozoospermia, ...

After a thorough history and an osteopathic physical exam, the patient, preferably dressed in loose comfortable clothing, lies down on the treatment table. Typically, your osteopath will place his or her hands underneath or over some part of the body to evaluate tissue function and structural dynamics.. A thorough diagnosis connects the patients history and physical exam to the structural evaluation. Treatment involves a gentle hands-on approach to free the areas of the body in which motion has become restricted. By cradling the head, the sacrum (tailbone), or other areas of the body, gentle pressures and repositioning movements are applied to free the bones, tissues, and fluids that have become restricted. During treatments, some patients only sense a gentle touch while others feel their body change immediately. Some simply feel a deep sense of relaxation, and others feel nothing at all.. On occasion, different techniques or modalities may be used, based on what the osteopath feels is most ...

The Netherlands has a well-organised system for maintenance of the health of children, i.e. the Youth Health Care system [13]. All children and adolescents are invited for preventive periodic health examinations at set ages until the age of 13 years. These examinations focus on growth, development, health functioning, and behaviour of infants, children, and adolescents. At age 13 years, the physician or nurse interviews the adolescents and provides health counselling. If physical of psychosocial problems are encountered, the physician or nurse may invite the adolescent (and parents) for a follow-up visit or may refer them to a general practitioner. Participation is voluntary and the care is offered free of charge by the government.. Given the rapid maturation of adolescents, and the associated mental health problems and health risk behaviours, there is a considerable support in the Netherlands for an additional examination at age 15-16 years. Several options for this examination have been ...

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. What are the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation? Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.. ...

Image Source: Google The final step is to continue the clinical information directly to the operator and ask for a phone consultation to determine whether or not you feel confident in choosing this person to care for you or your child. In some cases you can even ask to speak with other people who have received treatment of scoliosis and see if they have a good experience and results.. The interesting thing about health is that when it comes to procedures and not only prescribe drugs, there is a significant difference in outcome based on skill level and knowledge of the doctor. This could not be truer when choosing alternative scoliosis treatment for your child. The majority of alternative therapies performed outside the medical profession by chiropractors and physical therapists. When selecting an alternative examination techniques to see if the case studies are available, some methods may not have published research by many obstacles such as funding and the length of time the data has been ...

The work-up is also an information session where you have the opportunity to discuss all aspects of the donation and transplant process with a medical practitioner.

Each examination is three hours in length, totaling 100 questions relating to the topical areas outlined below. A score of 70% or better is necessary for passing. This outline and the IRRSP Radiation Safety Examination comply with the requirements of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as set forth in Title 10, Part 34, of the Code of Federal Regulations. All questions have been validated through recognized psychometric procedures, and all examination results are analyzed using psychometric procedures. These practices yield equivalent examinations even though they may have some questions with slightly different content. Up to 20% of the examination items (questions) may be "provisional" questions that do not count towards the examinees examination score but are included to develop statistical data. These items are included as part of ASNTs efforts for continuous examination improvement in accordance with industry-accepted psychometric principles.. ...
I asked about the pap smear and he said that he quit doing them as a measure for reoccurance. He said the most recent studies show that they are just not helpful in determining reoccurance. Also that the biggest risk of reoccurance is distant sites such as lymph nodes in the upper abdomen, pancreas, liver, lungs, etc. According to him, the most recent research data show about 2% of the time they will catch reoccurance in the vagina with a pap smear. Skewed by "are they swabbing a lesion found on physical exam?" He offered to do a pap smear if it would make me feel more secure. He also said that frequently when you have had radiation, a pap smear will show atypical cells that will require follow up and unnecessary testing. When you do unnecessary testing then you expose patients to overuse of xray and contrast, more anxiety for no reason.... I didnt have him do one. He believes that better monitor is physical exam, reporting vaginal bleeding and CT scans. So, my next scan will be in 4 months ...

There is no single test that can accurately diagnose cancer. The complete evaluation of a patient usually requires a thorough history and physical examination along with diagnostic testing. Many tests are needed to determine whether a person has cancer, or if another condition (such as an infection) is mimicking the symptoms of cancer. Effective diagnostic testing is used to confirm or eliminate the presence of disease, monitor the disease process, and to plan for and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. In some cases, it is necessary to repeat testing when a persons condition has changed, if a sample collected was not of good quality, or an abnormal test result needs to be confirmed. Diagnostic procedures for cancer may include imaging, laboratory tests (including tests for tumor markers), tumor biopsy, endoscopic examination, surgery, or genetic testing.. ...
Painless vision loss has a large differential diagnosis as shown in the above mnemonic. Following a systematic approach to the eye complaint, with a thorough history and physical examination will likely lead to the diagnosis. Consider the past medical history of a patient as they may have risk factors for certain eye diseases. Keep in mind that many medications a patient may be on can affect vision including anti-cholinergics, bisphosphonates, digoxin, sulfa agents, oral contraceptives as well as cancer medications. Consider using the ultrasound machine to help aid in your diagnosis along with a thorough slit lamp exam. Finally, do not forget other conditions extrinsic to the eye that could lead to vision loss as part of your differential especially toxins.. ...
The individual being examined should be comfortable and treated with respect throughout the examination. As the examination continues, examiners should explain what they are doing and share any relevant findings. Using language appropriate to the person being examined improves the effectiveness of communications and ultimately fosters better relations between examiners and examinees. Before visiting a health care professional, individuals should write down important facts and dates about their own medical history, as well as those of family members. There should be a complete listing of all medications and their dosages. This list should include over-the-counter preparations, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Some people bring their bottles of medications with them. Any questions or concerns about medications should be written down. Before the physical examination begins, the bladder should be emptied. A urine specimen is usually collected in a small container at this time. The urine is tested ...
The survey of 1103 MSM from around Brisbane, Cairns, the Gold Coast and Rockhampton sought to obtain direct information regarding safe sex practices and a range of information useful in the ongoing strategy to reduce HIV transmission in Queensland.. One of the major findings from the survey was that the number of respondents who reported being tested for HIV had remained at a stable 87.5 per cent.. HIV Foundation Queensland (HIVFQ) chair Dr Darren Russell urged for higher testing rates but said that while numbers from this survey had remained stable, there had been a "significant" increase in men testing for HIV since 2009.. "Since 2009 the proportion of non-HIV-positive men who reported testing for HIV in the previous 12 months has increased significantly from 68.7 per cent to 75.8 per cent in 2013. Increased testing may lead to the speedier diagnosis of new HIV cases," Dr Russell told the Star Observer.. The introduction of rapid HIV testing has had an impact on the ease and willingness for ...

Now dont get me wrong, there are a lot of messed up things here about their medical system, both academically and financially, but in the case Dr. Fred makes, they have it right on the money here. Ill need to learn some newer technology when I get back, Im sure, and Im sure theres long lectures from the general counsels office, etc. to properly let us know whats different and all that, but that stuff one can learn on the job--thats simple adjustment. Having never learned to really listen to a patient and then know what to follow up with on a physical exam, that cant be learned in an orientation seminar when your internship starts. Sure, the real world doesnt always give you enough time, but the "standard" should be thorough analysis, testing hypotheses, not "lets see what the CT says," because you dont need to think anymore once you see the film ...

So genome testing would become commonplace - something people do all the time?. When you think about it, when you go to a doctor, youll get a physical exam, get your blood pressure done, and youll also get a blood test. That test measures 15 or so different things in your blood. But there are technologies out there that can measure tens of thousands of things. The idea is that instead of measuring so few things, we should measure as many things as possible.. Our project was designed to sequence genome and see if that process is useful in healthcare, and can we follow the genome and see if it would be useful for disease diagnosis. So thats what launched the study.. How were you involved as a subject in the study?. Weve now been profiling me for two years, and weve done it extensively when Im sick. Because I have two kids, Ive been sick four times. When Im healthy, we do a genomic scan every two months, and when Im sick we do it more often, between seven and nine times. We see what kind ...
