Today we discussed clinical stations in general and CVS in a little more detail using a Powerpoint presentation.

The Learning points are:

  • Look at the surroundings to check for medications and any other aids
  • Always EXPOSE the part of interest
  • Ask for parents help in undressing
  • Do NOT make the child cry or be upset.
  • MOVE back till child settles
  • Can pass CVS station without Auscultation also.

“What have you brought with you? Medicines, equipment?”
