Summary Focuses on the most important areas in a quick assessment: the neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Nurses demonstrate mental status assessment; test cranial nerves, motor system, sensory system, and reflexes; assess cardiac status, including auscultating for heart sounds and checking peripheral pulses; assess the respiratory system, including inspection, palpation, and auscultation, and examining endotracheal placement; and assess the abdomen by auscultating, percussing, and palpating. This program provides a practical review.
