Regions of the body

Palpation is using the palm to feel the body during clinical examination. It is a vital tool of examination. It elicits tenderness, consistency which determine nature of masses and organs; and heat. First palpate head and neck region and compare two sides to determine if any is cooler or hotter than the other. Then palpate the chest- first precordium to determine if there is heave, thrill whispering pectoriloquy and vocal or tactile fremiti. Then palpate the remaining part of chest. Go now to the abdomen and palpate the costal margin and then the abdomen proper (using the recognized regions) to feel for enlargement of organs such as hepatomegaly, splenomegaly or renal enlargment which requires bilateral examination. Palpate for lymph nodes. Finally palpate the extremities.
