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.
I created this whilst in third year. I have always found it difficult to find a succint guide to the whole examination for the long case...so I created one! It is an easy guide to remembering what to do and why you do it....I hope it can help anyone who needs it
This is my version of how to take a decent cardiovascular history and cover all the relevant points! I have included things like drugs that you should automatically realise are to do with the cardiovascular system but this may not be useful for higher year students as I am just a first year! Hope this helps at least someone!
