1. What is Included in a Comprehensive Physical Exam?

A comprehensive physical exam is a thorough assessment of an individual’s overall health, serving as a proactive tool to identify potential health issues and promote well-being. It encompasses a broad range of evaluations, including:

  • Abdominal Exam: This assessment involves techniques such as listening for bowel sounds, tapping the abdomen to check for liver size and abdominal fluid, and palpating for tenderness.
  • Dermatological Exam: Inspection of the skin and nails can reveal indications of underlying health conditions.
  • Extremities Exam: Physicians examine physical signs, sensory changes, and joint abnormalities in the extremities.
  • Head and Neck Exam: Evaluation of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, tonsils, teeth, gums, sinuses, lymph nodes, thyroid, and carotid arteries.
  • Heart Exam: Detection of irregular heartbeats, heart murmurs, or signs of heart disease by listening to the heart with a stethoscope.
  • Lung Exam: Assessment of lung health by listening for crackles, wheezes, or decreased breath sounds with a stethoscope.
  • Neurological Exam: Evaluation of nerves, reflexes, muscle strength, balance, and mental state.
  • Vital Signs: Measurement of vital indicators, including heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, and temperature.
