Mosby's Physical Examination Video Series: DVD 1: Neurologic System: Mental Status and Cranial Nerves, Version 2
Hello, we will be performing scheduled maintenance from 1:00 AM until 4:00 AM Eastern Standard Time on May 28, 2015. Due to this maintenance, ebooks will be temporarily unavailable for purchase. Print book purchases will be unaffected. We apologize for any inconvenience.
This 17 minute video shows the steps needed to perform two major parts of the neurologic examination: assessment of mental status and cranial nerves. With the patient seated, it demonstrates how to evaluate the patient's general appearance and behavior, cognitive abilities, emotional stability, and speech and language skills as well as the functioning of all twelve pairs of cranial nerves, using the appropriate equipment. The video shows expected findings in healthy adults and presents variations in assessment techniques and expected findings in pediatric and geriatric patients.
