|| H & P || Alright medical peeps, just a reminder, taking a great history and doing an excellent physical exam is so important! • This was hounded into us as PA students, but it’s so real and so important! • I had a really interesting case today including a patient with a fall, rib pain and on exam I could feel the crackling in the soft tissue concerning for subcutaneous air! I was very suspicious for rib fractures allowing air to escape the lungs and get into the surrounding soft tissue... and CT scan confirmed! • It’s amazing what we can learn about our patients with attentive listening and a thorough exam. I know the job gets hectic, but take the time to slow down and do the due diligence your patients deserve! • And don’t ever discount the importance of these two things!
