Residential Block 1: Week 2 & 3 . . WoAh wOaH WOAHHH!! These past two weeks have been verrryy busy, and it's actually AMAZING how much content we have covered in such a short period of time! Although I wish I could share my experience in each course, I wanted to focus this post on our Clinical Skills I (CSI) class. . . This residential block honestly feels like a long 'date with Bates' (sorry, I had to)🙊. We have covered so much content, including medical history taking, vital signs, respiratory exam, cardiovascular exam, abdominal exam and HEENT exam. Each of these exams was divided into two sections: (A) brief intro to anatomy/clinical presentation and skill practice on classmates and (B) focused history and physical examination on standardized patients. This was usually done in two consecutive days, and although it was an overload of information in one res block, the idea was to provide us with the foundation to practice our skills during our upcoming LCE placements. . . The four major skills we learned were Inspection, Palpation, Percussion and Auscultation; these skills required us to utilize our senses and enhance them with medical equipment, to assess the function of various organs. I found percussion required repetitive practicing, to the point where sometimes I found myself automatically tapping my chest at the 2nd ICS, to listen to that resonant sound from my lungs (practice makes perfect right?)🤓 . . I think CSI was a notable course in this res block, because we were expected to apply our textbook knowledge in a clinical setting, to interview and examine SPs. More importantly, we were given the opportunity to hone our skills in front of facilitators and peers, who provided us with constructive feedback. . . Now onto week 4/4, where we will be wrapping things up with assessments and gradually transitioning into online learning! PC: @ryan.moisan

The dial test: for PCL &/or PLC injury. The test: patient is prone with knee flexed to 90 degrees and bilateral tibia are externally rotated to restriction. If >10 degrees difference = ➕. Flex knees to 30 degrees and repeat external rotation. If > 10 degree difference = ➕. If ➕ at 90 AND 30 degrees BOTH PCL And PLC injury likely. If ➕ at 30, but not at 90, like PLC injury. #kneepain #sportmedicine #pediatrics #football #soccer #futbol #rugby #posteriolateralcorner #PCL #specialtest #physicalexam #medschool #physicaltherapy #PTschool #athletictraining #ATschool #ATC #residency

9.18.2018 Today is the day. The days leading up to this day are the worst. It has been 1,825 days since I have been able to talk to my mom, look at her physical being and touch her skin. No sympathy please. Just call your mom (and/or dad) today and tell them you love them. Even better, give them a hug. Also, schedule your annual physical. No, they’re not fun, but do it. Paps do not detect ovarian cancer, just get an actual physical at the very least! As healthy as you may be, see your doctor at least once a year. View the ovarian cancer symptoms, please. Love you all.💕 #missmymom #ovariancancer #ovariancancerawareness #cancersucks #tealisabigdeal #knowyourbody #physicalexam #earlydetection #itwhispers

You have to hear this one loud to understand the #physicalexam Chester is #shy and tries to #hide the #pai#pain ... at the end of the #palpation he is #growling ... he has #shoulder #pain from compensating his #arthosis on the #hip. So we did #goldbeadimplants on the hip and #prolotherapy on the shoulder with #ozone. Swipe to see pictures of the #thoraciclimb #before and #after 4 sessions of #ozonetherapy . Now the only #complaint is #toomuchenergy 💪🏼 #vet #integrativeveterinarymedicine #gbi #ger#germanshepherd #triggerpoint #miofascialrelease #ethicaltreatment @zenvet_veterinaria_integrativa #germanshepherd

Pop quiz for you all: which of these abdominal organs is normally palpable on a dog GI PE? a) spleen b) pancreas c) gallbladder Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! The best part of vet school is getting the chance to apply what I’ve learned. Today I got to practice the gastrointestinal tract physical exam, and Ralphie here was so excited to help me learn!🐶💜 I feel incredibly lucky to be at an institution where I get to work with animals right from the beginning. Thank you, Cornell, for making that possible! • • • @cornellvet @cornelluniversity @futurecornellvet @cornelladmissions @sarahh__wrightt • • • ‭ #vetstudent #cor#cornellvet #cornell #cornelluniversity #student #anatomy #veterinaryanatomy #dog #dogsofinstagram #canine #phy#physicalexam #physical #exam #palpate #gitract #study #school #college #veterinarymedicine #veterinaryschool #futurevet #futureveterinarian #futuredoctor #likeforlike #l4l #followforfollow #workhard #studyhard #vetschoollife #veterinarystudent
