Submit quiz and assignments by 2359 Saturday night of the week this content is covered. Discussion board posting begins this week–see the instructions and rubric under the “Group” heading for Week 3
Overview: Use the interview guides and assessment forms for the topics we are covering. See the module 1 assignment instructions to refresh your memory if you are not sure about saving or submitting the work. Remember that you don’t have to use the same person as an assessment partner for the entire class—try to find assessment “models” among people who actually have health problems so that you get experience assessing and documenting abnormal findings if possible.
For Assignment 3 A, you will fill out the guides below:
• Thorax • Lungs
For Assignment 3 B, you will do the following:
• Heart • Neck Vessels • Peripheral Vascular system
Note: N/A and Normal/WNL and “good” are not acceptable as assessment findings. For this class, you must state what the finding is—that applies to the work for each week.
