  • 2. Section 1. Neurological Examination
    • Aims and claims
    • 1. Familiar with the general examination of neurological system.
    • 2. Understanding the examination of the cranial nerves
    • 3. Get hold of the motor examination,.
    • 4. Familiar with the sensory examination.
  • 3.
    • Main contents
    • 1. Introduce the general examination of neurological system.
    • 2. Introduce the examination of the cranial nerves .
    • 3. Emphasize the motor examination,.
    • 4. Introduce the sensory examination .
  • 4. Topic 1. General examination
    • Make it as a game playing to meet the children’s needs
    • Carefully observe the child when playing and interacting
    • Head shape and circumference
    • Pay attention to the relative symptoms: neurocutaneous stigmata, hepato-splenomegaly-------
  • 5. 2. What from G.E.?
    • Consciousness:
    • sleepy (drowsy, 嗜睡 )
    • unconsciousness (意识不清)
    • lethargy ( 昏睡)
    • coma (昏迷)
    Topic 1. general examination (con.1)

    • depression( 忧郁)
  • 7. Topic 1. general examination (con.3)
    • Action and reaction:
    • IQ:
    • Special features:
    • Neurocutaneous stigmata( 神经皮肤症)
    • Dysmorphic feature (畸形特点)
  • 8. Topic 2. The cranial nerves
    • Table 32. cranial nerve assessment in infants
    Ⅰ not tested Ⅱ blinks to bright light Ⅲ -Ⅵ assess highlights on pupils Ⅴ corneal reflexes Ⅶ facial asymmetry Ⅷ startles to sound; Ⅸ -Ⅹ gag reflex Ⅺ not tesed Ⅻ tongue movement Nerve test
  • 9. Topic 3. Motor examination
    • Muscle tone:
    • posture
    • movements
    • Hypotonic:
    • frog-leg in neonates
    • floppy ( 松软儿)
    • Spasticity: ( 痉挛)
    • Rigidity ( 僵直)
  • 10. Topic 3. Motor examination(con.1)
    • Power:
    0 No power 1 Barely perceptible power 2 Movement with gravity removed 3 Movement just overcomes gravity 4 Movement against gravity and some resistance 5 Normal power Power Observation
  • 11. Topic 3. Motor examination(con.2 )
    • Reflexes
    • Mobility( 活动) and gait (步态) :
    • dystonia (肌张力障碍)
    • athetosis (手足徐动症)
    • chorea (舞蹈病)
    • Speech
  • 12. Sensory examination
    • The most difficult part of neurological examination:
    • Touch
    • Pain
    • Vibration
    • Temperature
    • Joint position
    Topic 3. Motor examination(con.3)
  • 13. Section 2. Infections of the CNS Aim and claim
