Thorough discussion.Class was about fine tuning ourselves to the subtle signs which will make/miss our diagnosis.
1. First 30 sec of observation- spent that time.
2.Power of observation-during gait LOOK at the upper limb as much as the gait and lower limb.
3.Different Size shoes.
5.standing on one feet , squating can add on to finding the weak limb.
6.CHEST for etiology , median sternotomy scar – eyes does not know mind does not see (new information)
7.scar in spine – Trauma can be an etiology8.Hemihypertrophy -tone, power,reflexes will be normal.
This is all that I can remember.Thank you very much.
