This is a guide to performing a cardiovascular examination in the context of an OSCE exam. It was created by a group of medical students for the free revision website www.geekymedics.com where you can find a written guide to accompany the video.
The way in which this examination is carried out varies greatly between individuals & institutions therefore this should be used as a rough framework which you can personalise to suit your own style.
This presentation describes the basic cardiovascular examination. It is suitable for students in their early clinical years but may also be appropriate for students in their final year as revision for their OSCEs or students returning to clinical medicine.
The ability to carry out a thorough and slick cranial nerve examination is something every medic needs to master. This video aims to give you an idea of what's required in the OSCE and you can then customise the examination to suit your own personal style.
We spend a lot of time and effort both filming and editing these videos, so we hope you find them useful!
This video is part of a series of OSCE video guides which can be found at www.geekymedics.com or alternatively at http://www.youtube.com/user/geekymedics123
Remember that what these exams involve and how they are carried out differs between medical schools, so always follow your local guidance.
Our 'Common Cases' series are lecture presentations which cover the most common diseases and syndromes which are found in each of the systems examinations sessions in OSCE exams. These presentations form the lecture component of our annual revision courses. We hope that they are useful to help revise the main signs and important discussion points for each condition.
