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.
Completely redone normal physical examination content
Examination content is more fast-paced and streamlined for a more contemporary look
More culture, age, and gender variations are featured to reflect a diverse population
Lifespan considerations are depicted throughout, with variations in assessment for pediatric and geriatric patients

A booklet is provided with each video, containing overviews and outlines, learning objectives, discussion topics, and review questions with answers
