ConceptPhysical examination findings
DescriptionFindings observed during the physical examination of a subject of care.
UseUse to record details about findings on physical examination of the subject of care. This may include a narrative description of the findings, a framework in which to nest detailed CLUSTER examination archetypes, and a clinical interpretation of the findings. Examples of detailed CLUSTER examination archetypes include those that describe inspection, palpation, auscultation, percussion and movement of body systems or anatomical structures, such as CLUSTER.exam_pupils. Narrative descriptions of clinical findings from existing clinical systems may be captured using the 'Description' data element. Clinicians may sometimes want to record a summative phrase such as 'chronic otitis media' as an Interpretation of the physical examination. In the context of the physical examination archetype this should only be understood as 'physical signs are consistent with chronic otitis media'. While the summative phrase may appear to represent a diagnosis, safe and consistent querying requires a diagnosis to be recorded using the EVALUATION.problem_diagnosis archetype, even if the phrases are identical.
MisuseNot to be used for recording history-taking observations - use specific OBSERVATION and CLUSTER archetypes. For example OBSERVATION.story and CLUSTER.symptom. Not to be used to record stand-alone clinical observations - use specific OBSERVATION archetypes. For example OBSERVATION.blood_pressure, OBSERVATION.body_weight, or OBSERVATION.height.
PurposeFor recording details about findings on physical examination of the subject of care.
