Inspection of chest

 

Inspection schedule:
Introduction


Regions of the body

Inspection is a special way by which doctors pick very obvious clinical signs. It is possible to see the left chest rising more than the right during quiet respiration and this may be all that would clinch a diagnosis of atelectasis. Also precordial movement, thrill, parasternal heave, etc can be picked by good inspection suggestive of cardiomegaly and of course skin lesions missed at general examination.
