NURS 6512 Assessment of Head Neck Eyes Ears Nose and Throat

NURS 6512 Assessment of Head Neck Eyes Ears Nose and Throat

 

Emily, age 15, is brought to your clinic complaining of chills, aches, and a sore throat.
Without any testing, consider all of the possible diagnoses. It could be a cold, the flu,
bronchitis, or even something more serious, such as meningitis or mononucleosis.
Assessing the actual cause will involve much more than simple visual inspection. Some
conditions are so subtle that they require the use of special instruments and tests in
addition to a trained eye and ear.
This week, you will explore how to assess the head, neck, eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
Whether dealing with a detached retina, sinusitis, meningitis, or even cough, advanced
practice nurses need to know the proper assessment techniques in order to form
accurate diagnoses.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
 Apply assessment skills to diagnose eye, ear, and throat conditions
 Apply concepts, theories, and principles relating to health assessment techniques and
diagnoses for the head, neck, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
