Video 10 from the Jarvis Physical Examination and Health Assessment Video Series begins with an anatomical review of the central and peripheral nervous systems, cranial nerves, spinal nerves, and sensory pathways. After describing preparation for the examination, it demonstrates how to assess all twelve cranial nerves, grouping them by function and exam technique. Then it shows how to examine the sensory system, including assessments of pain, temperature, and light touch sensation as well as assessments of vibration and tactile discrimination. It ends with a health promotion scenario on teaching about diabetic foot care.
