Physical Examination and Health Assessment DVD Series: DVD 14: Head-To-Toe Examination of the Neonate, Version 2
Carolyn Jarvis, MSN, APN, CNP
Video 14 from the Jarvis Physical Examination and Health Assessment Video Series takes a systematic approach to the complete examination of a neonate, combining body-system assessments within the same region and incorporating gestational age assessments. First, it shows how to obtain an overview by observing general appearance, assessing vital signs, and measuring length and head and chest circumference. Then it continues with a head-to-toe examination, reserving potentially upsetting procedures for the end. The video demonstrates how to examine the structures of the head and neck, chest and abdomen, upper and lower extremities, genitalia (with variations for boys and girls), neuromuscular system, and spine. It concludes with a rectal examination and final procedures.
