Following the same method as when you evaluate patients, you should present patients in a similar way. In this video I go over a method I based on C. Davenport’s paper (see the website for the reference).
Here’s a link to the PDF I made while making the video. Again, let me know what you think in the comments.
Here’s the second video, on how to perform a focused history and physical (using your differential diagnosis) and then assigning pretest probabilities and ordering diagnostic tests.
I didn’t like the way the first videos came out, so I re-recorded them differently here. In this one, you’ll follow a patient (me) who develops chest pain then makes the decision to come to the ER. After calling an ambulance, the patient is triaged (sorted) and then the doctor (you) assesses the primary survey and initial actions.
The next video will go over the secondary survey, assigning pretest probabilities and diagnostic testing.
Again, please feel free to comment on what works and what doesn’t.
