In this era of high technology and expensive testing, there is nothing more important than a good history and physical examination in the process of medical care. A focused cardiac history allows the clinician to establish a differential diagnosis. The physical examination is utilized not only as an overall assessment of the cardiovascular system but more specifically to pursue those Author: Joseph Loscalzo.   Cardiovascular examination is a central tool for assessing the cardiovascular ation includes assessment of vital signs and jugular venous pulse, chest inspection and palpation, and, most importantly, auscultation of the specific auscultatory findings in valvular heart disease, see auscultation in valvular specific auscultatory findings of .

In The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination veteran academic clinicians bring the art and science of cardiac physical examination to the bedside with a tour de force tutorial on techniques needed to elicit various physical signs and to interpret them in relation to the patient's symptoms and underlying cardiac condition. This article discusses patient history, vital signs and physical examination related to the cardiac patient. This will enable practitioners to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this.

Published on Jul 5, This video demonstrates clinical examination techniques as described in Macleod's Clinical Examination. The textbook with access to the full set of videos is available at. Observations from the physical examination in this setting can inform clinical decision making before the results of cardiac biomarkers testing are known.

The prognosis of patients with systolic heart failure can be predicted on the basis of the jugular venous pressure (JVP) and the presence or absence of a third heart sound (S 3). Re-examination after the patient has made clinical improvement may be more revealing.

In general, many of the above techniques are not used when examining every patient. If the exam is normal, it would be neither efficient nor revealing to put a patient through all of these maneuvers.

The history and physical examination have always been the cornerstone of the evaluation of the patient with known or suspected cardiovascular disease. In the past five decades, there has been an unprecedented development and implementation of cardiovascular diagnostic modalities, which provide high-resolution, real-time images of cardiac.

Auscultation of the lungs is an important component of the examination of patients with suspected cardiac disease. The character and volume of breath sounds are useful in differentiating cardiac from pulmonary disorders.

A cardiovascular history and examination are fundamental to accurate diagnosis and the subsequent delivery of appropriate care for an individual patient. Time spent on a thorough history and examination is rarely wasted and goes beyond the gathering of basic clinical information as it is also an opportunity to put the patient at ease and build confidence in the physician’s ability.

Cardiac tamponade occurs when fluid trapped in the pericardial space (ie, effusion) compresses the heart and compromises cardiac output. Thus, an assessment of tamponade in the nonurgent setting requires (1) knowing the pretest probability of an effusion and (2) knowing the prior probability of tamponade among patients with effusion.

About 16% of general medical patients report that they have palpitations. 1 Within this group of symptomatic patients, the pretest probability of any cardiac arrhythmia is 39%. Important risk factors are age, sex, family history of palpitations, history of panic disorder, and history of prior cardiac disease.
