Unformatted text preview: Organizing your work place for Clinical Basics Testing . Determine your assigned faculty doctor (View Assignment List). . “Pick up your patient’s folder.” Obtain a Dual Probe Instrument. Check with your faculty doctor as to which bench to use. . Have your pen, reflex hammer & inclinometer available. “Place [the] patient’s Cerv. & Thoracic x-rays on the end of your work bench area.” “Put the [patient’s Prior] Case History on top of the x-rays for faculty review.” . The faculty doctor will‘give you the patient’s Radiology Report (that you had turned in to Dr. Johnson). *If there are notations on the Radiology Report, these notations should be recorded in the Special Instructions section of the Patient Evaluation/Work—up Form. 9. Take the Prior Case History and the Radiology Report and “punch” these. 10. “Get any last minute instructions from [your faculty] doctor.” 11. Once your faculty doctor has reviewed the Pri0r Case History & Radiology Report, put these pages on the _l_ef_t side of the patient’s folder, Case history on top. 12. Begin the Spinal Evaluation of your patient, least invasive to most invasive. 13. “When you complete the Dual Probe Scan, let the faculty doctor know ASAP your findings of “Break” _or “No Break.” 14. “The faculty doctor will then run the dual probe to check your instrumentation findings.” 15. If you have found a “break,” continue on with the patient’s Clinical Evaluation. (If you did 1191 find a “break,” continue on with the patient’s Clinical Evaluation, and your faculty doctor will assign you an area to palpate for Static & Motion review. Also, your faculty will assign a Technique set—up to perform—N9 ADJUSTING WILL TAKE PLACE. ] 16. If you have identified a “break,” be sure to perform & record findings for Static & Motion Palpation of the “break” area. 17. Have the faculty doctor check your palpation findings. 18. If you determine your patient is subluxated and your faculty doctor concurs, be ‘ sure you’ve recorded what segment is involved, its listing, and the type of adjustment selected. The faculty doctor will review your determination and will make any corrections to your findings. If the faculty'doctor feels there is TIME during the remaining class hour to adjust (and you and your'patient wish to have you adjust, in-class), place your patient on the piece of adjusting equipment appropriate for the adjustment. The faculty doctor will check your patient placement, will review with you the thrust for the adjustment—(have you thrust “in the air)—-critique your set up for the adjustment, and observe your delivery of the adjustment. Remember, too, “to record your Post Check findings.” ****NOTE: “DURING THE WORK—UP — ONLY USE THE HYLOS FOR THE LEG CHECK EXAM (DON’T USE THEM FOR THE ROM, or ORTHO-NEUROS).” wsame9- Copyright: Gindl, P., modified by Johnson, M.———9/29/09 ...
